Garcia leads by 4 after 3rd round at Castellon

Sergio Garcia closed in on his first European tour victory in three years at his home course Saturday, shooting a 5-under 66 to lead by four strokes after the third round of the Castello Masters.
The Spaniard has totaled 16-under 197 at Club de Campo Mediterraneo, where he grew up playing golf and where his father Victor is still the club professional.
In a group tied for second are England's David Lynn (68) and Simon Dyson (68), Peter Hedblom of Sweden (68) and first-round leader Soren Kjeldsen of Denmark (70).
Garcia sunk a long birdie putt at the second hole and had four more birdies, including holing from a bunker at No. 8, to make the turn at 5 under. But a poor approach at No. 10 and a wayward tee shot at the next hole brought consecutive bogeys.
Garcia, whose last European win was the 2005 European Masters, collected three birdies before bogeying the 17th.
Richard Finch (71) of England and Stephen Gallacher (65) of Scotland trailed by five strokes, one better than Swedish pair Mikael Lundberg (68) and Jarmo Sandelin (67).
