Kjeldsen shoots course record for lead in Seville

SEVILLE, Spain (AP) — Denmark’s Soren Kjeldsen shot a course-record 10-under 62 Saturday to take a one-shot lead after the third round of the Andalucia Open.

Kjeldsen had a 14-under 202 total on the Real Club de Golf de Sevilla course. After entering the round five strokes behind, he broke the course record by a stroke.

After starting 1 under through the first six holes, the Volvo Masters champion ran off seven straight birdies, one shy of a European tour record. He made a 45-foot eagle putt at the par-5 16th for a six-shot lead.

David Drysdale (66) kept Kjeldsen from pulling away, making six birdies in his final eight holes. Carlos del Moral (69) and Alastair Forsyth (68) were the next closest challengers at 10 under.

Colin Montgomerie, playing his 500th European tour event, shot a 75 to fall 12 shots behind Kjeldsen. The Scot was one shot off the lead after the first round.
