Beth made birdie on the final hole today to post a Ladies Spanish Open third round of -5 under 67 to lead by one shot with a -9 under par total.

Beth loves the climate here, it reminds her of home;

“It was a little bit of a slow start but I was happy with my back nine: 31 is always a nice score coming in.”

 “I reached the 10th, which was handy and then two putts for birdie and I hit a really good shot in on the 11th and holed that and 12th is a tough hole so I was happy with a par.”

“I particularly like this area and it does really remind me of southern California, where I’m from, so I love it.”

Local favorite Azahara Munoz holds second place, a third round -2 under 70 keeping her just one shot back at -8 under, saying she had trouble with her putting today;

“I gave myself quite a few chances and couldn’t make enough putts today.”

“I just couldn’t get the speed of the greens and get my ball to the hole. I also made a few par putts that kept me going, five, six footers, so I’m only one back.”

“I wish I was leading but one stroke’s nothing with 18 holes to go.”

Diana Luna, Italy and Sophie Walker, England,  are up to joint third on 4-under after rounds of 69 and 71.

Diana played with a bit of pain from a frozen neck;

“Sometimes they say beware of the sick golfer and I was less concerned with my scores than the other days and it worked out better.”

Sophie had to work hard today;

“It was up and down on the front nine with a few birdies and a few bogeys.”

“I started with two birdies and then went back to level and birdied six, and then after that it was steady pars.”

“I had to work a little bit harder today and get up and down a few more times.”
