Garcia closes in on back to back wins

11:42 am on 30 October 2011

The Spanish golfer Sergio Garcia is in sight of back-to-back victories on the European Tour as he leads the Andalucia Masters after three rounds.

A third day four under par 67 has taken Garcia to six under for the tournament, two strokes ahead of Spanish compatriot Miguel Angel Jimenez and Sweden's Christian Nilsson.

Garcia is on the brink of following up last week's runaway Castello Masters victory, his first for nearly three years.

First and second round leader Richie Ramsay of Scotland returned a 73 and is now three shots off the lead after bogeying the last two holes.
