Sweden’s Linnea Strom remains on course for her first victory at the Magical Kenya Ladies Open after carding a third-round level-par 72 to lead by two shots Saturday.

“It was a steady day. I started off a little bit tricky with two bogeys in the first three holes and that wasn’t ideal or what I was hoping for, but other than that I think I managed to stay focused and stay in my own bubble and enjoy it out there,” said Strom.

Spain’s Luna Sobron Galmes finished the round in second place.

“I played really good, I was very consistent, and the key was to be patient because this course is crazy with the wind. It is very narrow, and the bounce of the ball is very hard, so the key was to be patient.

“That eagle was an extra. I hit a good drive and then a 6-iron to in front of the green and made a 15m putt. I was hitting the ball very well in the last few weeks, I have been playing in America and the results have been good. I’m going to think about shot by shot and try to do my best. I would like to win, of course, but I need to be in the present and just play.”

German pair Esther Henseleit and defending champion Sophie Hausmann share third place on level par after carding rounds of 69 and 71, respectively.

France’s Emma Grechi sits in fifth place one on over after a double-bogey at the 18th saw her record a one-under 71, with Spain’s Marta Sanz Barrio one shot further back in sixth place.
