Reid ready for final round flourish

Home

Melissa Reid will continue the chase for her maiden victory by starting the final day of Ladies Swiss Open one shot off the lead.

England’s Melissa Reid will start the final round of the Deutsche Bank Ladies Swiss Open one shot behind leader Marianne Skarpnord after keeping herself in the frame for a first career victory.
Reid went round in 68 for the second day in a row to reach the 12-over-par total of 207.
The 21-year-old Derbyshire player was a runner-up at three tournaments last year and is determined to make her breakthrough soon.
She savoured her eagle at the par-five 18th hole, which came in demanding conditions.
Reid said: “I hit a great drive off 18 and then we had I think 212 yards to the pin but it was howling into wind.
“I just said, ‘What’s the carry to get over the water’, to (my caddie) Paul. He said, ‘You’ll be fine; rip it through and you’ll get there’.
“I hit probably one of the best three-woods I’ve ever hit and just ended up perfect.”
Skarpnord, who is also seeking her first tournament victory, carded a seven-under-par 66, climbing three places to the top of the leaderboard.
She began with a run of birdie, birdie, eagle, and said: “I’ve been off to a slow start the past two days.
“There are two par-fives at the start and the par three and I thought it would be nice to get a good start for once.
“Tomorrow I just have to go out there and do the same things I’ve done for three days: be patient and just trust myself.”
Australian Karen Lunn lurks in third place, three shots off the pace, after a round of 69, while England’s Georgina Simpson is the next highest British player on seven-under-par 212 after a 71.
