Jose Coceres has a fine chance of winning his first European Tour event today. The Argentinian, second in the Italian and Dutch opens last year, leads after three rounds of the Catalonia Open in Pals after shooting 67 for a 10-under-par total of 206. His skill in a gusty wind enabled him to edge past Jean Louis Guepy, who shot 72 to finish one stroke behind. David Gilford will be fined up to pounds 500 after flying home from Spain thinking he would not make the cut with a total of 147. The weather changed and he qualified, but he had left for home.
