Two-time champion Lydia Ko bogeyed the final hole for a three-under 69 to fall into a tie with Kaohsiung-born Candie Kung of the US for the third-round lead on Saturday in the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open.
After going 46 holes without a bogey, the 18-year-old Ko hit her approach on the par-four 18th near the face of the right-side bunker, blasted out to 10 feet and missed the putt.
“Overall I played really solid today, so I’m happy with the way I’m hitting it and the way I’m putting it,” Ko said. “I think every round, unless I shoot 18-under par, I’m probably going to say, ‘Hey, I knew it could have been better,’ but no, I’m playing solid, and that’s the mindset I’ve got to have and just have fun out there tomorrow.” [FULL STORY]
