In Gee Chun, from South Korea, is cruising along at The Evian Championship, and will take a four shot lead into the final round tomorrow at the Evian Golf Club in France.
In Gee shot a third round -6 under par 65 in The Evian Championship and her total of -19 under par not only gives her a four shot advantage but has broken the 54-hole Major record of -14 under-par set by Annika Sorenstam at the 2004 LPGA Championship and equalled the winning score for 72 holes in a women’s Major.
In Gee was asked if she would like to break the men’s Major record of -20 under, and also about the double bogey she carded;
“It would be a real honor.”
“After my double bogey I just thought about enjoying my back nine and letting it go.”
“I always try not to think about winning because it gives you too much pressure. My approach tomorrow will be the same: just enjoy my golf.”
Another South Korean, Sung Hyun Park, is in second place, at -15 under par, a third round -4 under 67, not enough to keep tabs on the leader.
Shanshan Feng of China holds third place, her third round -3 under 69 not doing her any favors, now at -13 under par, six shots off the pace.
World #1 and defending champion Lydia Ko slipped backwards, into tied for 36th place after a third-round +4 over par 75.
