Taipei, Sept. 12 (CNA) Four Taiwanese golfers were among 77 players who made the cut
at the US$3.25 million Evian Championship in France on Friday, but they failed to make moves up the leaderboard on Saturday.
Lee Min (李旻), Candie Kung (龔怡萍), and Hsu Wei-ling (徐薇淩), who play regularly on the U.S. LPGA Tour, and Cheng Ssu-chia (程思嘉), a regular on the European Ladies Tour, all made the cut after the second round, with Lee and Kung tied for 23rd at even par.
On Saturday, Kung shot an even-par 71 to remain at even par for the tournament, but with many players in the top half of the leaderboard shooting subpar rounds, she fell back in the standings and was temporarily tied for 29th with several players still on the course.
The often inconsistent Lee had a wild ride in the third round with an eagle, four birdies, five bogeys and a double bogey to card a 1-over-par 72, pushing her out of the top 30.
Cheng, who started the day tied for 57th at 4 over par, started disastrously with a double bogey on the par-4 first hole. [FULL STORY]
