Mixed day for Stephanie Meadow at Chevron Championship

admin admin | 04-21 16:15

Stephanie Meadow had an up and down day at the Chevron Championship, in a third round that included two double bogeys, two bogeys and five birdies.

The Ireland Olympian ended the day with a one-over 73 to sit in a share of 43rd place on level par ahead of the final round on Sunday.

Leona Maguire's weekend had already been cut short, after she shot 69 in round two on Friday.

World number one Nelly Korda remained in the hunt for a fifth straight win, trailing by one when play was suspended mid-way through the third round.

The 25-year-old sits alongside Brooke Henderson, one stroke behind leader Atthaya Thitikul on 11 under par.

Korda rose to 10 under through 11 holes on Saturday before play was suspended due to lightning in the area.

After winning the LPGA Drive On Championship in January, Korda won three events in the space of three weeks.

Victory this week would tie her with Annika Sorenstam and Nancy Lopez for the most wins in consecutive starts on the LPGA Tour.

Meanwhile, Henderson rocketed up the leaderboard with a stellar round of eight under through her 17 holes.

England's Jodi Ewart Shadoff leads the British contingent on five under, while English amateur Lottie Woad, who won the Augusta National Women’s Amateur earlier this month, is a shot further back.

Play is scheduled to resume on Sunday morning.
