Shin reels in Wie in Canada
Jiyai Shin joined Michelle Wie on top of the leaderboard heading into the final round of the CN Canadian Women’s Open.
Jiyai Shin has joined Michelle Wie on top of the leaderboard heading into Sunday’s final round of the CN Canadian Women’s Open, Shin posting a 69 to Wie’s third-round 72 and matching the tall American at 10-under
Wie had held a three-shot lead after her opening two rounds but she was not able to keep her momentum going and negated her three birdies with three bogeys.
Shin, the Korean No 1, meanwhile, compiled a tidy round of 69 as she posted five birdies as against two dropped shots.
Defending champion Suzann Pettersen is part of a three-way tie for third at six under par. The Norwegian was at level par on the day while Choi Na-yeon and Lee Jee-young shot 71s to join her.
Wie admitted that her putting had let her down at times.
“I felt like I left a lot of putts out there. I felt like I could have made a lot of them. But hopefully tomorrow I can make all of them,” she said.
“I just think it was just one of those days. I just couldn’t get the ball to the hole on most of them, so I’m just going to work on putting a little bit, and hopefully tomorrow they’ll all go in.”
Scotland’s Catriona Matthew is the top Brit in Manitoba. She is lying sixth after her round of 67 moved her to five under par, while Wales’ Becky Morgan is two under after her 69.
England’s Laura Davies is further back at four over.
