Matteo Manassero keeps Masters hopes alive
March 25, 2012

Italian teenager Matteo Manassero stayed in the running for the Masters by moving to within a stroke of the leader before darkness halted play Saturday in the third round of the Hassan II Trophy.

Damien McGrane of Ireland remained atop the leaderboard at 12 under after 10 holes. The 18-year-old Manassero must win to boost his ranking into the top 50 to play at Augusta National.

Manassero had seven birdies, including three straight from the 10th hole, to move to 11 under through 16 holes on the Golf du Palais Royal course.

Jose Manuel Lara of Spain is also a stroke back through 10 holes.

Michael Hoey of Northern Ireland was the clubhouse leader after a 65 that included an eagle and eight birdies to finish on 10 under. The three-time European Tour winner had a bogey on the last hole.

Strong win delayed play on Friday, and the second round was finished on Saturday. Only 29 players completed the third round.
