Allianz Ladies Slovak Open presented by Respect Gwladys Nocera of France,  gladly took control of the Ladies Slovak Open, taking a two shot lead into the final round on the Gray Bear course at Golf Resort Talé.  in Slovakia. Gwladys Nocera / Getty Gwladys had a third round of -1 under par, 71 for a tournament total of -7 under par, giving her a two shot lead over the field heading into the final day. She had started the day tied at the top with defending champion Line Vedel, sadly Line had to retire from the competition with a back injury, leaving Gwladys in the clear; " I found it really difficult to get into the round today with Line leaving, I felt really bad for her.I wanted her to play and compete with us. I hope she is better and going to get some good treatment. It was difficult because we were only two players and I couldn’t find my rhythm. On the back nine I played much better and had a lot more birdie opportunities. I waited until 18 to make a putt." In second place now is Lee-Anne Pace from South Africa, she is at -5 under par for the tournament, having carded a -2 under par third round of 70. Lee-Anne Pace / Getty Lee-Anne said she likes the course and had played well; "I played really well. I hit 16 greens so I’m very happy with that. Hopefully, tomorrow I can drop some more putts on the last day. I like this course. I enjoy the greens and I like the sloppiness, imagining the putts." Liz Young and Hannah Burke are tied in third place at -4 under par on the nicely compacted leaderboard. Liz had the lowest round of the day, a -7 under par 65; " I did have a chance for eight under and was thinking about it being a record for me. It’s all about hitting it in the right spot and leaving yourself an uphill putt,  pretty simple and if you put yourself in the wrong spot you can quite easily have a three-putt." Hannah had a steady -2 under par 70 for her total and is looking forward to tomorrow; " It’s still out there, so we’ll see how tomorrow goes. I had a double up two so I had to make a comeback." It is all to play for tomorrow.
