Jutanugarn moves into lead at LPGA Singapore
The No. 1 player in the world is No. 1 after three rounds at the HSBC Women’s World Championship in Singapore.
Two strokes behind American Amy Olson after two rounds, Ariya Jutanugarn moved to the top of the leaderboard Saturday and a one-stroke lead after a 6-under 66 at Sentosa Golf Club’s Tanjong course.
Jutanugarn had a threeround total of 11-under 205. No. 3 Minjee Lee was in second place after a 67, with Jodi Ewart Shadoff in third after a 68, two behind the top-ranked Thai player.
Olson had an incredibly mixed round of one double-bogey, three bogeys and six birdies for a 71 and was three strokes behind.
Former No. 1 Lydia Ko shot 69 to move to 5under. Brooke Henderson had a 67 to move well up the leaderboard to 3-under – from 33rd to a tie for 14th. Nelly Korda, who won the Women’s Australian Open two weeks ago, was also at 3-under after a 69.
Oman Open: Maximilian Kieffer played just three holes at the Oman Open on Saturday in Muscat. He finished the day in the outright lead. The German golfer was one of only 11 players to finish their second rounds on Friday before play was called off for the day because of sandstorms. When the second round was completed early Saturday, Kieffer was in a share of the lead with Joachim B. Hanson of Denmark.
