So Yeon carded -5 under 67 to take a three shot lead at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at -11 under par.
Draining a long putt made the difference;
“My third shot was quite a tough bunker shot, so I had to go a little sideways.”
“And then I was able to make a birdie putting after all.”
“Right now, I feel pretty confident on the putting green, and I think the tournament is all about confidence, then that’s the attitude I really want to have for tomorrow, a free mind but confidence.”
“Two and three is quite a big difference, it’s only one shot but it just feels bigger. It feels quite different.”
Brooke Henderson of Canada holds second place at -8 under par, with a third round -2 under par 70.
Brooke had a bad day with the putter;
“Today, I kind of struggled a little bit with my putter, which is disappointing.”
“I think just kind of get better in my head and just go out tomorrow and made a lot of good shots and see if I can make some birdies, and hopefully they roll in.”
“I’ve played so well here before and I’ve been able to hoist that trophy that will probably be looking at us on the first tee tomorrow, it’s a great feeling.”
“Hopefully I can just put a solid round together, and that’s all I can really ask for.”
In third place is Sung Hyun Park, South Korea, who could only manage to post a -1 under 71 third round for a -7 under total.
