(Machynys Peninsula G&CC, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire – August 13 2005) England’s Kirsty Taylor moved to seventeen under par and holds a four shot lead after posting a two under par 70 in the third round of the Wales Ladies Championship of Europe, at Machynys Peninsula G&CC, Llanelli.

Johnson in contention

Johnson, who is aiming for her 18th career victory, had a fast start with two birdies followed by an eagle, at the par-five third hole playing in the group before Taylor.

“I was four under after three, but I’m a bit disappointed with the way I finished because I had the perfect start,” Johnson admitted.

“I had lots of birdies, then lots of bogeys. I’ve just got to think more, not about distance, but where to land it.”
