Yang eyes first major
SOUTH Korea’s Amy Yang, chasing her first major golf title, has fired a one- under- par 69 to maintain a three- stroke lead over Stacy Lewis through three rounds of the US Women’s Open.
Yang finished on eightunder 202 at Lancaster Country Club, one stroke off the 54- hole tournament record set by American Juli Inkster in 1999. Yang and playing partner Lewis birdied three of the first six holes but struggled on the greens.
“I had a tough time getting the right speed on the green, but I’ve hit the ball great this week. I’ll take positives from there,” Yang said. “My coach and I, we have practised hard this week. I believe I can do well.”
