Ol­son takes 2-shot lead af­ter 3rd round of Evian

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

Chas­ing a first ma­jor ti­tle for her­self, and a first for Amer­i­can women this season, Amy Ol­son fired a bo­gey-free 65 to take a twoshot lead af­ter the Evian Cham­pi­onship third round on Satur­day.

Ol­son broke clear to post a 14-un­der 199 to­tal af­ter twice be­ing in a four­way share of the lead at the sun-soaked Evian Re­sort Golf Club.

An ea­gle at the par-5 9th first took her clear, and she added three birdies on the back nine to stretch her lead over Sei Young Kim.

Kim carded 64, flash­ing the form that set a U.S. LPGA Tour record 31-un­der win­ning to­tal at the Thorn­berry Creek Clas­sic in July. Mo Martin, a for­mer Women’s Bri­tish Open win­ner, was two shots back at 10 un­der.

Scott McCar­ron shot a 9-un­der 63 at War­wick Hills for a share of The Ally Chal­lenge lead with Tom Lehman and Jeff Mag­gert.

Mark O’Meara had a 64 to join Tom Byrum (66), Paul Broad­hurst (68) and Este­ban Toledo (69) at 9 un­der.
