Queensland’s Maverick Antcliff has continued his recent good form and finds himself just three shots from the lead at the D+D Real Czech Masters in Prague.

Antcliff who was just two shots from the halfway lead at last week’s Cazoo Classic near London before finishing midfield continues to impress in the relatively early stages of his European Tour career, having finished 3rd and runner-up in two events since joining the tour last year.

Antcliff was just outside the top 60 in the race to Dubai rankings leading into this week so capitalising on his good start this week will go some way to ensuring he has access to the bigger events at the end of the season.

The 28-year-old is tied for 5th behind Sweden’s Sebastian Soderberg.

Of the other Australasians, Antcliff’s fellow Queenslander Jake McLeod and New Zealand’s Ryan Fox are 34th, Deyen Lawson 50th and New Zealander Josh Geary 63rd.
