Simon Dyson leads despite late double bogey
May 6, 2012

Simon Dyson had a 1-under 71 Saturday after a final-hole double bogey left him with a one-stroke lead heading into the final round of the 100th Spanish Open.

Dyson flew the green with his approach shot but failed to get out of a bunker in regulation to finish at 5 under overall. Spain's Pablo Larrazabal (69) and Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen (71) shared second place.

Dyson was disappointed with his finish, describing his 6-iron from 180 yards out coming out like a bullet.

''I should be out of sight, the way I am playing,'' he said. ''So it was a disappointing way to finish because for 17 3/4 holes I played really good. My shots all day, except for the last, were straight down the flags.''

Dyson is the highest ranked player in the field at No. 36 and seeking a seventh European Tour victory.

Italy's Matteo Manassero had a 76 to share 12th place.
