Canter out front at Andalucía Masters

Englishman leads by three going into Sunday at Valderrama

Laurie Canter will take a three-stroke lead into the final round of the Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucía Masters as he bids for a maiden European Tour title.
Laurie Canter found eight birdies on moving day

The Englishman, runner up at last month’s BMW PGA Championship, signed for a four-under par third round of 67 at Real Club Valderrama, holing his eighth birdie of the day on the 18th to move three shots clear of compatriot Matt Fitzpatrick.
“The golf course doesn’t give you loads. Although, as we all know, there’s opportunities to drop shots here. I think what it means is I can go out tomorrow and play how I have these last couple of days," said Canter.
"It’ll be interesting to see what happens with that tomorrow. There’s a whole load of things that can change on the course."

Fitzpatrick, aiming for his seventh European Tour victory, carded a one-under-par round of 70 as he took outright second place after the third round.
“Valderrama was a real test today. You had to be so patient. Early doors there wasn’t much wind and a chance to make some birdies, but I didn’t really do that. Then the wind picked up on the back nine and it was a case of sticking in there. I’m really pleased with the way I grinded it out and I’m happy with the one under, said Fitzpatrick.
Yep, it's less windy down here!

America’s David Lipsky recorded a tournament-low seven-under-par 64 to climb forty-two places on the leaderboard up to third place. After starting his day with a bogey on the first hole, he was blemish-free through the next seventeen as he matched Canter's eight birdies.
Five players share fourth place on two under par, including Ryder Cup player Bernd Wiesberger and abrdn Scottish Open winner Min Woo Lee.
