Nelly Korda, USA, is cruising at the top of the HSBC Women’s World Championship leaderboard at Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore.
19 year-old Nelly posted a third round -7 under par 65 to lead the HSBC Women’s World Championship by one shot with a -15 under par tournament total;
“I was hitting the correct shots.”
“I was aggressive when I needed to be, so I’m just happy with the way it ended and really looking forward to tomorrow.”
“There are a bunch of great girls on top of the leaderboard, they are going to be making a lot of birdies, so I’m going to have to stay patient and see where the round takes me.”
Nelly also spoke about her sister Jess, who won last week;
“She’s had a very tough off-season with her surgery and just to come out her first week and win and completely crush everyone, it’s very inspiring.”
“It definitely motivated me a bit more.”
Danielle Kang is in second place at -14 under par, and recorded her first bogey’s of the tournament, two in her last four holes, in a -2 under par round of 70;
“I didn’t want to finish on a bogey but it was a really unlucky lie on the fairway, got plugged in the bunker.”
“But I gave myself a really good par chance and I ended up one shot behind the lead.”
“Got 18 more holes to play and that’s a lot of golf.”
“I’ve got a couple good friends up there on the leaderboard, so it’s exciting.”
“Hopefully get a good pairing going and it’s going to be an exciting day tomorrow.”
