Home favourite Sergio Garcia made a hot start to his final round of the Open de España, although the leaders had yet to tee off at Parador de El Saler.
Garcia was favoured with the bookmakers heading into the event, but has not managed to find his best form this week.
However, the Spaniard made an excellent start today as a birdie on the first was followed up by an eagle two holes later.
Those efforts moved Garcia to four under par, still a fair way adrift of Marc Warren - who topped the leaderboard overnight on eight under.
Scoring was proving difficult, as shown by those on course, though Edoardo Molinari managed to finish with an impressive 68.
