Pettersen stays in British Open mix
01 Aug 2015 20:08
Norway's Suzann Pettersen recovered from a poor start to her third round to remain firmly in contention for a third Major title in the Ricoh Women's British Open.
-
Pettersen's two-shot halfway lead quickly disappeared as she dropped shots on the first and sixth in testing conditions at Turnberry, but the 34-year-old bounced back with birdies on the 10th and 11th on her way to a level-par 72.
-
That left the Solheim Cup star on seven-under-par, one shot behind South Korea's Jin Young Ko and Taiwan's Teresa Lu, who both shot rounds of 69.
-
Japan's Mika Miyazato carded a 70 to lie two shots off the lead with world number one Inbee Park, world number two Lydia Ko and Australia's Minjee Lee all on five-under.
-
England's Melissa Reid carded a double bogey on the first and was four-over for the day after six holes, but produced a superb fightback with six birdies and an eagle to record a 69 and finish four-under.
-
That was one shot ahead of Wales's Amy Boulden, whose 68 contained five birdies and just one bogey and was the lowest round of the day.
-
Reid hopes she can put up a real challenge for the title on the final day of the tournament.
