Pernilla Lindberg, Sweden, powers ahead in the ANA Inspiration and will take a three shot advantage into the final round at Mission Hills in California.
Pernilla carded a third round -2 under 70 to take a three shot lead into the final round tomorrow of the ANA Inspiration at -14 under par;
“I’m going to keep doing what I’ve been doing for three days when I go out there tomorrow.”
“Obviously it’s going to be different. I’ll have, I don’t know how many girls chasing me tomorrow, and that’s going to be different.”
“Someone’s going to go out there and shoot a low round, so I just need to keep doing what I’m doing.”
In second place at -11 under par is Amy Olson, USA, with a third round -4 under 68, Amy has never been in the final pairing before;
“I’ve never been in this position before, but I’m excited about it.”
“I definitely look at it as an awesome learning experience.”
“You can’t really learn until you’ve been there. So, I’m really excited about that.”
Six ladies are tied in third place at -10 under par, Jodi Ewart Shadoff, and Charley Hull, both from England and both with -3 under 69 today, Moriya Jutanugarn, Thailand, -6 under 66, Jennifer Song, USA, -4 under 68, with two ladies from South Korea, Inbee Park, -5 under 67 and Sung Hyun Park, +2 over 74.
Inbee had a good day with the putter;
“Just a much better putting day than the last couple days.”
“The putter just felt much better today. I made some good putts out there, especially good par putts on the back nine.”
Sung Hyun and Pernilla were put on the clock on the back nine, it rattled Sung Hyun who immediately gave up her two shot lead, and had trouble focusing on what she was trying to do, while speeding up play to catch up. There is a special tournament for this kind of golf, it is called speed golf, stupid by name, and stupid by nature.
S.H. said it was a rough day out there;
“I just tried to play my own game and stay focused on what I had to do.”
“At the end of the day, I just had to focus on what I had to accomplish. It was a rough day out there today.”
