Minjee Lee, Australia, leads the Volvik Championship after 54 holes at Travis Pointe County Club, after a rain delay of 2 hours and 11 minutes.
Minjee took control of the Volvik Championship with a bogey free third round -4 under 68, and will take a two-stroke advantage into the final round tomorrow with a -12 under par tournament total;
“I had a pretty solid day today, made no bogeys, four birdies on the card, which is pretty solid for today.”
“I think just keeping it in play was pretty important today.”
Four ladies are then tied in second place, all at -10 under for the championship, Stacy Lewis, USA, -5 under pa r 67 today, I.K. Kim, South Korea, also -5 under 67, Jodi Ewart Shadoff, England, -3 under 69, and Lindy Duncan, USA, -3 under 69.
Stacy is going to hang around and see what happens;
“This golf course, you can shoot a number. You can shoot 6 or 7-under, but you can also play pretty good and shoot even par.”
“So you’ve just got to get runs like I did there at the end of the day and just keep hanging around and post a number and see what happens.”
“That’s what wins these things. Excited to be in the hunt.”
Lindy has been working on a swing change;
“I’m just hitting more greens I would say, and then my wedge game improved a lot over the off season.”
“The front nine was solid, birdied the par fives and had three good par saves on 10, 11, 12, so that was pretty much a good round.”
