Matthew Jordan and Johannes Veerman headed the 19 players to qualify for the final round of the Cyprus Showdown on Sunday.

The pair carded seven-under 64s in the third round at the Aphrodite Hills Resort but the scores will now be reset – as they were for the third round – with all the remaining players starting at level-par once again.

Englishman Jordan, who mixed six birdies with an eagle at the sixth and a bogey at the third, and American Veerman, whose flawless round featured five birdies over the first 10 holes and an eagle at the par-five 18th, will be hoping to continue the form which saw them finish one ahead of Welshman Jamie Donaldson and Germany’s Bernd Ritthammer on Saturday.

Callum Shinkwin, who won last week’s Cyprus Open, Marcus Armitage, Niklas Lemke, Masahiro Kawamura, Louis De Jager, Alexander Levy and James Morrison all comfortably made the final round with third-round 66s.

Steven Brown, Robert Macintyre, Sami Valimaki and Jonathan Caldwell had a shot to spare as they carded 67s.

But Richard Bland, Jorge Campillo, Gavin Green and Thomas Detry just made the cut with 68s, and the latter trio would have missed out had Bland holed a birdie putt at the 18th in the final group of the day, with only the top 16 and ties qualifying.
