Bernd Wiesberger retired from the row on Saturday and took a two-shot lead over the final round of the Scottish Open.

The Austrian took a six-under card-par 65 in The Renaissance Club and moved to a 20 under total.

Erik van Rooyen from South Africa, 18 years of age, is closest to him after his 67-lap round in East Lothian.

"I have remained on the pedal, I have been offensive and have gone to the flags," said Wiesberger.

"I am doing really well with my irons, I have done well and because of the weather this job is achievable.

" I have put myself in good positions on the par fives that this week Rory McIlroy is nine shots of the lead role as he prepares to play his final round for a home Open Championship at Royal Portrush next week.

Wiesberger won his fifth European Tour title at the Made in Denmark event in May after returning from an injury, and his shared second place at last week's Irish Open preceded this promising week in Scotland

Both Wiesberger and Van Rooyen carded only one bogey in their third round.

Van Rooyen's back nine was better than his front nine and the 29-year-old surprised a remote birdie bonus on the par-three 17th hole to keep him within reach of Wiesberger and who went to Sunday.

"I" I am very satisfied and it took some patience, "said Van Rooyen, who wants to seal his first European Tour title.

" I have had a warm start the last few days so I just had to relax and stay patient and know there are 18 holes to play. We play golf to belong to the last group, so I love it. "

Calum Hill and Scott Jamieson remain the highest Scottish hopes after their round of 71 and 69, placing them at 10 respectively, while Richie Ramsay 9 under and Forrest 8 under.

But there was disappointment for East Lothian golfer David Drysdale, who finished 4 years later and did not make the unusual circumstance of a second cut.
