Buenos Aires, Argentina — While it may not have been an ideal start for Oshawa’s Derek Gillespie at the Personal Classic, the Canadian has showed heart and climbed the leaderboard with solid play in Argentina.

The two-time PGA Tour Canada winner carded a 5-under 67 Friday and a 2-under 70 on Moving Day.

Gillespie fumbled early Sunday, beginning his third round with consecutive bogeys before regaining his composure and making five birdies in the next 10 holes.

He currently sits at -6 in a tie for 34th spot.

Calgary’s Chris Baryla continued to slip in Rd. 3 after carding an opening round 65.  He followed up his 73 from Rd. 2 with a 3-over 75 on Saturday to drop into a tie for 47th.

Robbie Greenwell of Georgetown, Ont. shot a third round 79 and sits at +5 for the week.

The event was reduced to 54 holes because of inclement weather.
