Andersson, currently lying 43rd on the LETAS Order of Merit, also completed her two nines in 37 and 33, finishing strongly with birdies on the 14th and 18th holes.

Seven players are tied in third position, at even par, including South African Laurette Maritz, a regular player on the Ladies European Tour, who has been visiting Norway to carry out some work for her charity, Eyes For Zimbabwe. Also on the level par mark, Norway's Marita Engzelius, who played alongside Evian Championship winner and fellow Norwegian, Suzann Pettersen, in the Suzann Pro Challenge and finishing in second place.
