Aditi, who is looking for back to back victories here at the Qatar Ladies Open, carded a third round -4 under par 68, to share top spot on the leaderboard with Nanna, both ladies at -12 under par for the competition. Nanna stayed tied on top with her -3 under 69 effort today.

Aditi is happy with her golf, and is hoping to have fun tomorrow;

“It was quite windy in the morning so I knew I had to be sharp with my approaches and I had a few birdie chances which I made, so that start was good.”

“On the back nine, I just didn’t hit as good shots as I was hitting on the front nine and I miscalculated the wind a couple of times as well. I made a lot of putts on the front nine, so I was bound to miss a couple. I finished with a birdie, so it was good.”

“It’s great to be in contention, the week after a win. I’m really happy with the way I’m playing this week. I played with Nanna today and she’s an aggressive player as well, so it will be fun tomorrow.”

Nanna is also happy with her position

“The front nine, I just didn’t hit it close enough so I didn’t give myself the birdie chances I needed.”

“On the back nine, I had a few more chances which I made, so that was good.”

“On 18, it was lucky that my second shot didn’t go into the water. I was just happy that I didn’t have to take a drop. It’s better to be tied for the lead than be one behind, but either is okay.”

Becky Morgan is in third place at -11, her third round -6 under 66 elevating her up the leaderboard, good putting played a part in her success;

“I played well today and got off to a really good start. I dropped a couple late on the front nine and played the back nine really well. I putted well.”

“The last few days I haven’t made many putts from six to 15 feet. I hit some close but I made some good 10 footers.”

“There are a couple of par fives and 16 is a driveable par-4. If you hit the fairway then you’ve got some good scoring opportunities.”
