Caroline Hedwall seeks a title for the seventh women's European Tour

Caroline Hedwall from Sweden wants to secure her place in the Solheim Cup team in Europe after taking the lead in the La Reserva de Sotogrande Invitational.

Hedwall & # 39; s two under 70 in round three lifted her to five under, one ahead of Celine Herbin and Esther Henseleit.

If the 30-year-old claims her seventh Ladies European Tour title on Sunday, she will become the top of the Solheim Cup qualification list with five more events left

Overnight leader Charlotte Thompson had a six- over-78 to fall back to one over.

A gust of 20 km / h created difficult conditions in southern Spain and Thompson from England scored consecutive triple bogeys on the 10th and 11th holes.

Hedwall had three birdies and only one bogey in what she described as a "challenging" round.

"I wouldn't say it was comfortable playing in the windy cond, though, but I have created a lot of birdie opportunities," she added.

France Herbin charted a 73 to drop to four below, alongside German rookie Henseleit, who held a two-shot lead after 11 holes but had four bogeys in a row from the 12th

Europe takes over the United States in the Solheim Cup from 13-15 September in Gleneagles.
