Ernst leads Lorena Ochoa Invitational
Austin Ernst shot her second straight 5-under 67 on Saturday to take the third-round lead in the Citibanamex Lorena Ochoa Invitational.
Ernst had her second straight bogey-free round at Club de Golf Mexico after opening with a 72.
“I have been hitting my driver pretty well, which I get a lot of looks at birdie,” Ernst said. “I have had a lot of good looks this week so even when I am not making everything, like today, I still made five birdies. So, I have just made it very easy when I haven’t been sure about myself, missing greens and I haven’t had many hard putts for par.”
The 24-year-old American won the 2014 Portland Classic for her lone LPGA Tour title.
She’s coming off a twoweek break.
