Jul 2, 2021 | Featured, South Africans abroad

A second consecutive two-under-par 70 by Lee-Anne Pace on Friday took her into a share of seventh place after the third round of the Ladies European Tour’s Big Green Egg Open at Rosendealsche Golf Club in Arnhem, Netherlands.

The South African Women’s Open champion made four birdies and two bogeys in her round, and her four-under-par total for the tournament left her nine shots off the lead which was held by Stephanie Kyriacou of Australia and Sanna Nuutinen of Finland as their 65s consolidated the halfway lead they held. After 54 holes, they had a four-stroke advantage over Atthiya Thitikul of Thailand.

Pace once again found it easier to score on the front nine, making three birdies and a bogey on her way to the turn in two-under 34. And for the second day in a row, she made a birdie and a bogey going home for level-par on that nine.

Swaziland’s Nobuhle Dlamini carded a one-under 71 to go into the final round in a share of 32nd on two-over, while Lejan Lewthwaite’s level-par 72 saw her finish 54 holes on five-over in 55th. Stacy Bregman signed for a 75 to be on eight-over in 62nd.
