England moved into medal contention in the World Amateur Team Championships in Puerto Rico, inspired by a splendid start to the third round by former
amateur champion Gary Wolstenholme.
Wolstenholme went to the turn in 34 which included an eagle three at the eighth and then started for home with four straight pars to remain at two
English amateur champion James Heath was one under after 12.
That meant England moved into joint fifth position on eight under, just four strokes outside the bronze medal spot currently held by Sweden.
Wales, who had enjoyed a brilliant second day, slipped from being joint third overnight to joint 11th at the halfway stage of round three.
Ireland were among the early starters and moved from one over to one under. Darren Crowe returned a 69.
But Scotland were really struggling at eight over for the tournament and in a tie for 31st place.
