TICINO, Switzerland – Australian Rebecca Artis was joined in the lead by American rookie Jessica Yadloczky on a third day of low scoring at the Deutsche Bank Ladies Swiss Open.
Playing in blazing sunshine and in the same tricky breeze as the previous afternoon, Artis recorded an impressive bogey-free round of 70 containing two birdies to stay at the top of the leader board for the third successive day.
She ended on an 11-under-par total at Golf Gerre Losone in Ticino and was joined by Yadloczky, who jumped up the leader board with a seven-under-par 65. South African Ashleigh Simon shot 66 and is one shot back, followed by the Netherlands' Marjet Van der Graaff (67) a shot further behind.
Artis and Yadloczky share the same goal: to claim their maiden win at the third largest prize-money event on the Ladies European Tour, which boasts a winner’s check of 78,500 euros.
