With the Alps in the background the 71st Italian Open is entering the final day. Gotta wonder if they played during WWII with Benito Mussollini shooting numerous HIO on opening day. You know how dictators are!
But this year it's Hennie Otto. Yes, Otto of South Africa going low, 62 on Friday to grab lead at -16. He's only a few months off back surgery and looked a bit weary Saturday. . He remains 2 ahead of RRamsey and 3 above BWiesberger. Others follow. The TV guys are keen on Scot SGallacher who can oust GMAC from Ryder cup if Gallacher wins or gets 2nd alone or nearly so. Gallacher is 6 back so win looks improbable. A lovely course, former royal hunting grounds, listed at 7200 yrds, may show damage from wild boars who roam.
Best USA guy DLipsky at -7.
