Melisa Reid leads the Oates Vic Open after 54 holes at 13th Beach Golf Links in Australia.
Melisa, from England, shot a third round -6 under par 67 to lead the Oates Vic Open at -15 under par after 54 holes, an improvement in her putting making difference;
“I feel like I have struck the ball really well all week and also in the Bahamas two weeks ago.”
“The difference is that I am starting to make some putts at important times.”
“I did leave a few out there today, I had a lot of chances and not making birdie at 14 standing in the fairway with a 9 iron for my second shot and also at 18 not making birdie there is a bit disappointing.”
“I kind of needed that pressure on my putting because I’ve worked extremely hard on my putting and not been rewarded for it yet.”
“I spoke to my coach Kevin last night and got one little tip about balance.”
“I always get a lot of support when I am here. Aussies like to work hard and play hard and that is me really.”
“To win here would be like winning an Australian Open, the crowds are massive and it is a great atmosphere playing out here, this is a great field and I will need to play well tomorrow to win.”
Angel Yin, U.S.A. -5 under 68 today, and Sue Oh, Australia,-3 under 70 share second place at -13 under par,two shots off the pace.
