Tvede and Ciganda tied at La Manga

Julie Tvede

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.
