Duo lead the way in Seville
England's Simon Dyson and Dane Soren Kjeldsen were tied for the lead after six holes of the Spanish Open final round in Seville on Sunday.
Dyson was ahead by only one after a closing double bogey on Saturday and made a flying start, sinking an 18-foot putt on the first and then landing a bunker shot for another birdie at the next.
But he was twice in deep rough at the long fifth and ran up a bogey six to fall back alongside Kjeldsen, who had birdied the first and fifth at the scene of his 2009 Andalucian Open win and where he holds the course record with 62.
They were two in front of Italian Francesco Molinari and Spaniards Pablo Larrazabal and Jorge Campillo.
Dyson and Kjeldsen both three-putted the short seventh and with Dyson then having his third bogey in four holes on the next, missing the green and failing to hole from eight feet, it was all change at the top.
Molinari was the one to take advantage. He two-putted the long ninth to
complete a superb front nine 32 and by holing a 10-footer at the 10th for his fifth birdie he led Kjeldsen by one and Dyson by two.
Molinari raced four clear of the field by adding further birdies at the 13th
He was a brilliant seven under for the day and eight under for the tournament, with Dyson and Kjeldsen both four under after the latter bogeyed the 10th and 12th, but in between holed a bunker shot just like Dyson had earlier in the round.
Molinari parred the final four holes for a best-of-the-week 65 and was three clear of his closest challengers as they came to the closing stretch.
The Ryder Cup player, who began the day four behind, could not celebrate yet, but it would take a miracle for him to be denied a third European Tour win.
Molinari was home and dry when Larrazabal failed to birdie the short 17th. It kept him three behind along with Kjeldsen and Alejandro Canizares, who were already on the final hole.
