Marbella, Spain:Lee Westwood took a one-shot lead into the final round of the Andalucia Open after a 7-under 65 in the third round on Saturday.
"I was pleased with the way I played. I didn't hit the ball as well as I would have liked but it was nice to hole a few putts for a change," said Westwood, who is 15-under par with a total score of 201.
Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano of Spain is second with 202.
Westwood's third round ended disappointingly with bogeys at the last two holes - one day after the Englishman set a course record 8-under.
"On the last two holes I short-sided myself and it's just one of those things you have to accept," Westwood said. "I was trying to make birdie, not bogey, but I'm not particularly bothered. These things happen."
Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa, who led after two rounds, was two strokes off the pace with a total of 203. He shares third place with Michael Jonzon of Sweden.
