Sei Young Kim of South Korea is firmly in control of the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic, she equaled the LPGA 54 hole low scoring record.
Sei Young carded -8 under 64 today to post -24 under par for 54 holes, giving her an eight shot cushion at the top of the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic leaderboard, going into Sunday’s final round, pretty safe to say this is a one horse race.
Sei Young was happy with another good day on the course, and to equal Anna’s record;
“I was pretty solid, another good round today.”
” After I turned the front nine wind is pretty calm, so was able to attack to the pins to make a lot of birdies.”
“It’s an honor to have my name with Annika’s.”
“I used to watch Annika on television and it was my dream to play on the LPGA with her.”
Nearest challenger is Amy Yang, also from South Korea, carding -5 under par 67 in her third round to claim second place on her own at -16 under par.
Tied in third position are Lydia Ko, New Zealand, -6 under 66 today, Anna Nordqvist, Sweden, -5 under 67, and Emma Talley, USA, with -4 under 68, all at -15 under for the tournament.
Lydia said she played well, and could not believe she was still so far behind the leader;
“I shot six under yesterday and I was seven shots behind the leader on Thursday and then I shot six under and I was still seven shots behind.”
“It doesn’t happen very often when that’s the case.”
“Sei Young is tearing up the whole golf course. There are so many low numbers out there with the whole field.”
