|After both shooting 70 in the final round of the Murcia Ladies Open to finish at 5 under par, the defending champion Julie Tvede from Denmark and Spain’s Carlota Ciganda will resume play on Sunday morning. The two players played the par five 18th twice in the play-off, both recording birdies each time but were unable to continue due to darkness.|
Ciganda and Tvede both started the day at 2 under par, one shot behind the overnight leader, impressive young Danish amateur, Daisy Nielsen. Tvede was the strongest of the three players over the opening nine, recording a 3 under 34, with four birdies and one bogey.
Ciganda started slowly with two bogeys in her first eight holes but jump-started her round with an eagle at the 498-yard par 5 ninth hole.
Nielsen covered the front nine in one under par but faltered on the back to shoot 75 and finish at 1 under par in fourth. It was a solid performance from Spain’s Maria Beautell who shot a final round of 71 to finish in third place.
Play will resume at 8.15 am.
