Katherine fired a -7 under par 65 in the third round of the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic, too top the leaderboard at -20 under par, and will take a comfortable four shot advantage into the final round tomorrow;
“I like this golf course. It suits my eye, and I think it’s going to take another low one tomorrow.”
“I said to my caddie, I feel like four under is about even par out there just because you get so many good birdie opportunities and a lot of wedges into holes, a couple reachable par fives.”
“I’ll be trying to get a couple under my belt early just to kind of give me some breathing room. A lot of golf still to be played.”
Ashleigh Buhai, South Africa, is in second place at -16 under par, she too posted a third round -7 under par 65, despite making a bogey on the first hole, her putter helping to repair the damage;
“I hit the ball really solid. I made a bogey on my first hole, and after that I hit 17 greens in a row.”
“I just kind of favored to the side of the pin that you had to, and I rolled in a few fifteen footers”
” I was cautious at some times, and then I knew when I could be aggressive.”
“I’ve known Katherine for a long time, so I think it’ll be good for us being in familiar company, and I think we have a similar game. I look forward to it.”
Ayako Uehara, of Japan, -7 under 65 today, and Jodi Ewart Shadoff, England, a bogey free -6 under 66, are tied in third position at -13 under par.
Jodi was feeling calm and putted well;
“It was good, I was feeling calm, relaxed, just enjoyed the round, hitting the ball well, and some putts fell in the middle of the round, so it was nice.”
