Second round co-leader Rebecca Hudson plays a shot from a bunker

The third and final round of the Ladies Italian Open presented by Ruco Line is under way on another glorious day at Perugia Golf Club in Umbria.

Holly Clyburn and Rebecca Hudson began the day on four-under-par but it’s set to be a tight contest as ten players started the final round under par and within three strokes of the second round leaders.

Plenty of sunshine and low scoring is expected at the course today. Italian Veronica Zorzi birdied two of her first three holes to get into a share of the lead and was quickly joined at the head of affairs by fellow Italian Diana Luna and Florentyna Parker, whose maternal grandfather was Italian, from Minori.
