the south african player Oliver Bekker gave a blow of authority in the Catalunya Championship, a DP World Tour tournament, by becoming the sole leader after presenting a round of 67 shots (-5) for a total of 205 shots (-11) at the end of the third day of the tournament that takes place at the PGA Catalunya Golf in Caldes de Malavella (Girona).

It was an ‘express’ day, with 72 players on the field after the ‘cut’ on Friday, which began at 07:30 in the morning with groups of players three by three leaving the ‘tees’ of hole 1 and 10, since the weather forecast announced showers and storms in the afternoon.

However, there were up to quintuple ties in the head after the first nine holes, but Oliver Bekker, a 37-year-old South African, finished the day as the solo leader with two shots ahead. The Spaniards Cantero and Larrazábal, both with -6 after respective cards of -1 and -3, are the best national tricks ahead of the last round this Sunday.
