TERRASSA, Spain (AP) _ Thomas Aiken maintained his lead after a somber third day of the Spanish Open, overshadowed by the death of Spanish great Seve Ballesteros.

The South African shot an even-par 72 to reach 8 under, two strokes ahead of Denmark’s Andres Hansen (69), France’s Romain Wattel (72), Scotland’s Scott Jamieson (72) and Spain’s Pablo Larrazabal (73).

A moment of silence was held for Ballesteros at El Prat course under an overcast sky. Afterward, Spanish stars Jose Maria Olazabal and Miguel Angel Jimenez embraced in tears, mourning the loss of their countryman.
