Nelly, -3 under par 69 today, and Wei-Ling with a even par round of 72 share the Swinging Skirts lead with -9 under par totals, and will take a two shot advantage into the final round tomorrow.
Nelly spoke about being nervous;
“I think I’ll definitely be a little nervous, anyone who is in contention on a Sunday will obviously feel those types of feelings.”
“But I’ll also be excited and just happy to be in that position.”
“Wei-Ling was playing right behind me today, but you heard a couple roars.”
“I think it’s awesome to see how much they support women’s golf out here and just how they support a home player is really great. It’s really nice to see.”
“There’s a lot of girls stacked up on the leaderboard, so you know, I’m just going to be one of those girls that’s fighting for it.”
Five ladies are tied in second place at -7 under par, Jin Young Ko, South Korea, -3 under 69 today, Megan Khang, USA, -2 under 70, Lydia Ko, New Zealand, even par 72, Jodi Ewart Shadoff , +1 over par 73, and Bronte Law, -3 under 69, both from England.
