Katie Burnett from the USA, leads the Lotte Championship by one shot in Hawaii.
Katie shot a bogey free third round -5 under par 67 to take the lead in the Lotte Championship, and will take a one shot lead into the final round with her -13 under par total.
Katie said she loves putting on the Bermuda grass greens;
“I’m doing everything pretty good, putting mainly.”
“I’ve made a lot of putts over the last three days. I would usually say that’s probably one of the best parts of my game is putting.”
“Anything inside ten feet I usually am pretty good percentage-wise from there.”
“I had made a couple long ones too this week. I grew up on Bermuda and I love Bermuda greens. I see the putts better on Bermuda.”
“It was a solid round, I just tried to stay patient.”
“I’m from the coast so I’m used to the wind, I’ve been home for two weeks and it was really windy at home, so I have pretty much been working on a pinch shot or three-quarter shot so it doesn’t get so affected by the wind.”
Su-Yeon Jang, from South Korea, holds second place at -12 under for the tournament, a -5 under par 67 keeping her in touch with the leader.
