A rain delay has forced the Kingsmill Championship into a Monday Finish, with Minjee Lee leading, having completed 15 holes.
Minjee is part way through her final Kingsmill Championship round, having completed 15 holes and currently -7 under par for the round. Her tournament total is -16 under par, and she knew she was at the top, but just wants to get out there tomorrow and finish off;
“I knew I was right there, I still have some work to do tomorrow, but just kind of gave myself opportunities, played smart golf. I didn’t do anything crazy. Just my putts seemed to drop.”
“Hopefully if I can get the win tomorrow then I won’t have to go to the U.S. Open qualifying.”
Nearest challenger is Alison Lee at -12 under par after 14 holes, and -2 under on her final round, four shots adrift with four holes to play, and realistically not much chance of catching the leader.
Alison suffered a nose bleed out on the course today, after some attention she carried on and made birdie on the next hole;
“I’ve had a nosebleed every day since I’ve been here, just happen to have gotten it on the course today. Thankfully it didn’t last too long.”
“I know I’m going to have to play aggressively being four strokes behind Minjee.”
“I know exactly what I have to do tomorrow if I want to take this. It’s all up to me. It’s me against the golf course.”
” No matter what Minjee does, I just have to play my best.”
There are five ladies tied in third place at -10 under par and do have some chance of catching second place Alison, but the way they are playing in does not seem feasible.
Paula Creamer, Hoo Joo Kim, So Yeon Ryu, Perrine Delacour and Suzann Pettersen, Suzann is in the clubhouse with her score.
Lydia Ko and Inbee Park have both completed their last rounds and are T16 at -5 under par for the competition.
More to follow on Monday.
