Golf: Webster left chasing shadows
Sunday 14 March 1999
England's Steve Webster was left praying for a miracle to prevent the local favourite Miguel Angel Jimenez from successfully defending his Turespana Masters title in Malaga yesterday. Webster, from Nuneaton, fired a superb third-round 67 for a 14-under-par total of 202 and a four-way tie for second place alongside the Per-Ulrik Johansson, of Sweden, France's Marc Farry and the Spaniard Ignacio Garrido. But Webster said it would take a major collapse by Jimenez to give anyone a chance of catching the Spaniard, who scorched round in a new course record of 62, 10 under par, for a 19-under total and a five-shot lead. "If he's five clear you can't really see anybody catching him," said Webster. "I just hope it blows a gale. Everybody is making birdies with the course and weather like this but I'm pretty good in the wind. He's had a couple of eagles today. I just hope it might be my turn next."
