The European Tour’s already weather impacted Andalucia Valderrama Masters hosted by Sergio Garcia Foundation has been forced into overtime at the Real Club Valderrama in Sotogrande in Spain.

Defending champion and the local favourite Sergio Garcia will return to the course at 9.10 local time on Monday morning still with 11 holes to play in his third round of the now 54 hole event.

A series of weather disruptions forced event organisers to reduce the event to 54 holes and now play has been forced into extra time with all 77 players who made the cut required to return on Monday morning.

Garcia extended his four shot 36 hole lead to five with an early birdie on Sunday but Lee Westwood closed the gap to three when play was abandoned for the day in the early afternoon due to dangerous weather leaving Garcia three ahead of the Englishman and four ahead on Ireland’s Shane Lowry and Spain's Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño.

Jason Norris 

Jason Norris leads the Australians, the 2017 Fiji International winner in a share of 12th place at 3 under par for the tournament through 8 holes of his final round.

Since his win in Fiji and earning European Tour status Norris has struggled with not one top 20 in 27 European Tour events. This, therefore, is an encouraging week for the Adelaide based 46 year old who is 1 under par for the day through his opening 8 holes.

Jason Scrivener began the week well with a round of 68 on Thursday but has fallen back to now share 25th place through 10 holes of his final round.

Andrew Dodt, Wade Ormsby, Scott Hend and Marcus Fraser also made the cut and are further back.
