David Horsey took just 24 putts on his way to a third round 66 (the lowest round of the day), which shot him 40 places up the leaderboard into a tie for third. The 28 year old is in superb form of late with 6th and 2nd place finishes in his last two events. He leads the Par 4 Scoring with a 3.80 average and comparatively he has made very few mistakes over the tricky Parador de El Saler course.

Paul WARING -5

Paul Waring's Genworth Tournament Statistics highlight that he is hitting the ball long and straight. The 28 year old English golfer ranks 6th for Driving Accuracy (with 42/52 fairways hit) and 7th for Driving Distance (with a 291 yard average). Currently playing on a medical exemption, Paul is yet to record a top three finish on the European Tour, so a win tomorrow could do wonders for his golfer career.
