Play was suspended due to darkness in the third round of the Sime Darby LPGA in Malaysia, with Shanshan Feng leading.
Shanshan has completed 17 third round holes at the Sime Darby LPGA, and currently sits on top of the leaderboard at -13 under par, and is -7 under on the day. Rain was the reason for the long delay, eventually leading to the suspension of play due to darkness.
Anna Nordqvist is in second place, at -12 under, with 15 holes completed, with -5 under par on the day.
Third place goes to Amy Yang, -11 under par, she too has only completed 15 holes and is -1 under par in her third round.
World number one Lydia Ko, had a completed bogey free third round of -6 under par 65, moving her up the leaderboard to T6 at -8 under par for the tournament.
Lydia had to wait over four and half an hours, just to play the 18th, because of the rain delay, but came back to make par. She said her ball striking and putting were better today;
“I’ve been striking the ball pretty well. I’m making a few putts here and there but the putts that didn’t drop on the first day kind of have been dropping the past two days.”
“Those little things I think make the difference at the end of the day.”
“Number eighteen is a tough driving hole to come back to after a few hours of break. But had a pretty okay lie and hit a good shot out of there.”
“It was a pretty mediocre third shot, but obviously to finish off well with a good putt I think kind of summed up my round today.”
“The girls are playing great. Depending on where they put the pin positions, really rely on how low the scores are.”
“But I’ve just got to focus on my game. That’s what I tried to do yesterday and today, and that’s how I got to this position, so I think I have to do the same thing for tomorrow.”
