Donald shares top spot in Madrid


MADRID – Rhys Davies of Wales and Luke Donald of England share a two-shot lead going into the final round of the Madrid Masters.

Davies went around in 5-under 67 on Saturday to sit alongside Donald, who carded a 68. The two are tied with a three-day total of 16-under 200.

Italy’s Francesco Molinari holed five birdies in the first seven holes for 65 to stay in touch with the leaders, while Alvaro Quiros (64) of Spain is three shots back. Quiros is going for a second homesoil victory this season after winning the Spanish Open.

Graeme Storm (67) of England was at 12 under to sit four back.

Donald’s last victory on the European Tour was the 2004 European Masters, while newcomer Davies won in Morocco earlier this year.
