Pace one shot behind Spanish Open leader

 

American Beth Allen will chase her debut Ladies European Tour victory at the Spanish Open. The 29 year-old Californian finished the third day at the head of affairs after a round of level par 72 at La Quinta Golf Resort on the Costa del Sol. She ended at seven under par, one stroke clear of England’s Melissa Reid (70) Finland’s Ursula (70) Wikstrom and South African Lee-Anne Pace (73). Allen held steady with three birdies against three bogeys on another scorching day in Marbella, making up her score on the par fives. There will be a friendly European-US rivalry in the last group on Sunday ahead of next week’s Solheim Cup, which pits the best 12 European players against their rivals from the United States. Allen and a group of friends will celebrate Reid’s birthday tonight, as she turns 24 on Monday, just prior to making her Cup debut at Killeen Castle in Ireland. Reid will be in pursuit of her third LET title following a second win at the Deloitte Ladies Open in Holland in June. Her card contained an eagle, a double, three birdies and one bogey. Wikstrom also had a colourful scorecard, with an eagle on the 14th. Italian duo Veronica Zorzi and Stefania Croce are currently tied for fifth place on five under par, while overnight leader Tania Elósegui from Spain shot 79 to slip back into a share of seventh alongside Sweden’s Carin Koch and Italian Diana Luna. Thai LET rookie Nontaya Srisawang recorded her second hole in one of the season at the 186-yard 6th hole, but after winning a Skoda in Slovakia, there was no prize this time. There would have been a Seat car for an ace at the 11th.
