Swedish players Oscar Lengden and Robert Karlsson, and Benjamin Hebert of France were one stroke behind the joint leaders after 65s.

Thomas Pieters, the world No. 29, is the highest-ranked player competing in Denmark but a quadruple-bogey 8 at the par-4 No. 6 — his 15th hole — led to him shooting 74.

Europe Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn, playing in his home country and in his 500th event on the European Tour, shot 73.
