CIGANDA LOOKING TO JOIN FELLOW SPANIARD CABRERA BELLO AS SPANISH OPEN WINNERS
Carlotta Ciganda shot a two under round of 70 to move into a tie for fourth entering the final round of the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open.
“Yeah, I’m very happy the way I played today, especially the front nine, I thought it was really tough and really windy. I started with birdies on 2 and 3. It helped on the par 5, they moved the tee up. It was a little shorter today,” Ciganda explained. “And then yeah, I was just trying to hit fairways, hit greens, make a few putts. I bogeyed 5 and then birdied 8, and then I had two bogeys on 10 and 11. So I was a little pissed there. But then, I’m like, just keep playing and it’s just a grind. So I just to just keep fighting, and then two birdies on 14 and 18. So happy with the round.”
Ciganda is looking to match the feat of her Spanish Countryman Rafa Cabrera Bello who won the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open earlier this month at Dundonald.
“I’ve been playing good the last week, so I’m just trying to be patient. Try to stick to my plan. Yeah, I’m having a good time out there with my caddie, Terry. I’m learning a lot and he’s teaching me so many things. I still have lots to learn, but I’m having fun and I’ll try my best tomorrow.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY
“It was. Especially on 18, it literally was just coming sideways. It was nice the tee was up today, so that made that hole a little less challenging. Sei Young hit two amazing shots in there to have an eagle putt. But yeah, happy to be done and happy to be in the position I am.” -Karrie Webb on the conditions
