Morgan birdied two of her last four holes to post a three-under 69 at Golfpark Holzhäusern and sit in tied-fourth, keeping her in touch with early pacesetters Kim Metraux and Sanna Nuutinen.
Home favourite Metraux carded six birdies in a bogey-free round to set the clubhouse target, only to see her total matched late in the day when Nuutinen birdied seven of her last nine holes.
“To be honest, I didn’t even realise it was going so well, the birdies just dropped and dropped,” Nuutinen said. “I had an unlucky start with a double bogey on the first hole, but I just kept thinking, it’s 18 holes so keep going.”
Marta Sanz Barrio is two strokes back in third and Tonje Daffinrud is a further shot back alongside Morgan, who bounced back from a double-bogey at the 13th to post birdie at the 15th and 17th.
“I did not drive it very well but hit a lot of good approach shots and made a lot of 10ft putts,” Morgan said. “I had a lot of chances but just need to straighten out my tee shots.”
