Garcia regains lead at Valderrama Masters

Oct 21, 2017 - 8:49 PM Tournament host Sergio Garcia will take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters after he shot a three-under 68 on Saturday.

The Spaniard had six birdies and three bogeys to reach eight under, just ahead of English golfer Daniel Brooks, who shot a sizzling seven-under 64 -- for the best round of the week.

Australian Wade Ormsby carded a four-under 67 in the third round to be sixth, five shots off the pace. His compatriot Jason Scrivener (72) is at four over.

Garcia is trying to win his second title at Real Club Valderrama. He won the Andalucia Masters at this venue in 2011.

"There's still a long way (to go)," Garcia said. "We can't get too much ahead of ourselves."

On Friday, he was awarded an honorary lifetime membership by the European Tour in recognition of his U.S. Masters win in April.

Joost Luiten of the Netherlands, who led after the second round, shot an even-par 71 and was two shots behind Garcia.

"I felt like I left a couple too many out there," Luiten said. "Especially on the greens with a couple of short putts."

Scott Jamieson of Scotland (71) and Jamie Donaldson of Wales (68) were three shots off the lead heading into Sunday's final round in southern Spain.
