VILAMOURA, Portugal - Scotland's Scott Jamieson matched the European Tour record with an 11-under 60 on Saturday to pull within two strokes of leader Paul Waring after the third round of the Portugal Masters.
The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round.
"I was definitely nervous," Jamieson said. "But thinking about it from the tournament point of view, the leaders are going to be a minimum of 16, 17 maybe 18 under going into tomorrow. So that kept me going from a pushing point of view."
Waring, from England, had a 67 to reach 16 under. He birdied the 16th and 17th holes.
Jamieson was 14 under along with Ireland's Simon Thornton, Wales' Jamie Donaldson and South Africa's Hennie Otto. Thornton shot 65, Donaldson had a 66, and Otto a 69.
