Westwood has 1-stroke lead at Andalucia

PUERTO BANUS, Spain (AP) — Defending champion Lee Westwood shot a 6-under 66 Saturday to take a one-shot lead over three players after the third round at the Andalucia Open.

Westwood had birdies at the first five holes to move to the top of the leaderboard at 12-under 204.

“I’m going to play a round under the pressure of trying to win tomorrow, and that’s what I wanted,” Westwood said.

The English Ryder Cup player sank putts of six, 12, 15 and eight feet by the fourth and two-putted from 20-feet at the par-5 fifth.

Oliver Fisher rolled in a 35-footer at the par-4 18th to finish with a bogey-free 67. The 19-year-old is at 11-under 205.

“I have a chance now and I’ll just go out and try and do the same things,” he said. “Winning this season was definitely a goal.”

Fisher was joined by fellow Englishman David Lynn (68) and France’s Thomas Levet (68) at 205.

Morning leader Peter Hedblom (70) of Sweden trailed by two shots in fifth.
