Taiwan’s Teresa Lu shot a 69 in the horrendous conditions at Turnberry in Scotland on
Saturday for an eight-under 208 total to share the lead at the Women’s British Open with South Korea’s Ko Jin-young, who also shot a 69.
Lu’s only victory on the LPGA Tour was the 2013 Mizuno Classic in Japan, but she adapted well to the alien conditions.
The 27-year-old had five birdies in her 69 and she said her aim for the final day was to stay relaxed and enjoy it.
“Today I focused on playing low shots. It was fun,” she said.
World No. 30 Lu rolled a birdie putt just wide on the 18th hole that would have given her the outright lead.
“I have to try to stay relaxed because it’s going to be a tough day tomorrow,” Lu said.
Former world No. 1 Yani Tseng of Taiwan was eight shots back on even-par after a third consecutive 72, while Kaohsiung-born Candie Kung was a shot further back after a 70. [FULL STORY]
