During his third round, Micheluzzi carded a 66, tallying seven birdies and one bogey, improving upon his performances in the first two rounds where he shot 67 and 70, respectively. Behind him, now one stroke back, are Englishmen Andy Sullivan and Sam Bairstow.

Sullivan finished at -3 after an inconsistent round, managing 8 birdies but also recording two double bogeys and a bogey between holes 9 and 11. Meanwhile, Bairstow strung together four birdies from the 3rd to the 7th hole, but for the remainder of his round, he could only muster two more birdies, which were offset by two bogeys.

Things went worse for Englishman Richard Mansell and German Freddy Schott, co-leaders at the end of the second round, who finished this time at +3 and +4, respectively, falling seven strokes behind the leader. Five strokes back, at two under par, is Alejandro del Rey.

The Madrid native, the best Spaniard and the top performer of the day, carded a 65 with seven birdies, an eagle on the 13th hole, and two bogeys. Additionally, Adrià Arnaus (-7), Ángel Hidalgo (-4), and Iván Cantero (-1) are also still in contention.
