Paola, from Colombia, holds a one shot lead at -9 under par, and is looking for her first ever victory on the LPGA Tour, she is very excited at the prospect:
” It’s been exciting and I just focus on what I can control and the holes ahead of me. I’m very excited for tomorrow. The only thing that matters right now is the first tee tomorrow. Nerves are good, yeah, of course, I mean I prepare myself for these kind of situations, to play the last day and hopefully win tournaments.”
She leads Lindsey Wright, -8 under par, by one shot entering the final round tomorrow. Lindsey is another player seeking her Rolex first time win.
Lindsey said she had played good golf:
” I just played faultless golf really, I didn’t make any mistakes. I made a ton of putts.”
Eun-Hee Ji and Julieta Granada are tied for third at 7-under-par. Cristie Kerr is aiming for back-to-back wins, the LPGA winner is at -5 under par, four shots off the lead going into the final round. Cristie also played well;
” I hit it really good, gave myself a lot of chances. It played a little more difficult today even I think because of the wind.”
For Sunday’s final round, the Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic will again feature a 12-hole layout, but this time with one modification. The fourth hole will no longer be played in favor of the 18th hole, which will serve as the tournament’s finishing hole. The course will play to a par of 47. The routing will be: 10-6-7-5-11-12-13-14-2-3-8-18.
