Ernst leads Lorena Ochoa In­vi­ta­tional

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

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.
