Perez, Southgate lead Dunhill Links pro-am after three rounds

Matthew Jordan is chasing a maiden European Tour victory

Matthew Jordan is chasing a maiden European Tour victory

The tournament is played over three courses, with one round played each on Carnoustie, the Old Course and Kingsbarns before the final round at St Andrews.

Jordan struck a stunning eight-under par round of 64 at the Old Course in St Andrews to move to 14-under, one shot clear of Scotland's Calum Hill, Swede Joakim Lagergren and fellow Englishman Matthew Southgate.

Rory McIlroy is one further back after his 66 and while it was bogey-free, he was like Rose in the respect that he expected rather more after going through the first five-holes in five-under.

However, all that and more will be taken care of if the world number 292 from Hoylake can lift the title on Sunday and claim the first prize of £650,000. "I just need to make a few more putts fall over the weekend at St. Andrews".

Rose is among a six-strong group two shot off the lead after a superb front nine at Kingsbarns.

Perez, a Scotland-based Frenchman who is ranked No. 184, has had rounds of 64-68-64 as he goes for a first European Tour victory in his rookie season, having graduated from the Challenge Tour past year.

"I was aware I was going low but was super relaxed", said Rose, "Sometimes you can get in your own way when you're on a really good run".

Rose flirted with history after an eagle and six birdies saw him reach the turn in 28 at Kingsbarns, only to see hopes of a "59 round" ended with a double-bogey at the 11th on his way to an eight-under 64.
