- Open de Espana, Round Three
Brits dominate proceedings in Valencia
Marc Warren shot to the top of the Open de Espana leaderboard after carding a four-under-par 68 to sit eight-under-par overall, two shots ahead of fellow Scot Craig Lee as the Brits were the stand-out performers in round three.
Warren succeeded with a series of tremendous up-and-downs as his short game thrived in windy conditions at the Parador de El Saler course, but Lee could have closed the gap if it had not been for a poor finish to his round.
Lee suffered successive bogeys at the 16th and 17th to taint an otherwise-flawless third round, which dropped him back two shots off the lead carding a three-under 69.
"I played well early on and manged to get a couple of birdies," Lee said. "But the end was difficult with the wind and I threw a couple (of shots) away.
"It is always frustrating (to end poorly). There were a couple of easy up and downs and I did not quite make the most of them.
"But I am delighted with the position that I am in; the game is pretty good and pretty steady."
David Horsay hit the round of the day, shooting a six-under-par 66 to move within three shots of Warren's lead, while English compatriot Paul Waring also sits at five-under after shooting a three-under-par 69.
Elsewhere, overnight leader Peter Uihlein dropped two shots after shooting a 74, and Sergio Garcia hit three birdies and a solitary bogey to card a two-under 70 and move one-under-par overall.
