Taipei, Oct. 24 (CNA) World No. 2 Lydia Ko of New Zealand rose to first place on the leaderboard after the third round of the Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship on Saturday, while three Taiwanese players tied for 24th – the best score of the home players.
Ko fired eight birdies, one bogey and one double bogey on Saturday to finish 13-under 203 for her first three rounds, taking a four-shot lead over second place Eun-Hee Ji of South Korea.
“I chipped in on 11 and I think that gave me some momentum,”Ko said in a post-round interview with the LPGA, when asked about her strong performance on the back nine. [FULL STORY]
