Amy Yang held a two-shot lead over England’s Karen Stupples after the third round of the S4C Wales Ladies Championship of Europe following a one-under-par 71 today.
The 20-year-old South Korean is 12 under for the tournament at Royal St David’s Golf Course in Harlech after carding four birdies and three bogeys.
Stupples shot 66, including six birdies, a double-bogey at the seventh and an eagle at the eighth, to put herself in contention.
“It was pretty solid. I got off to a really good start but had one bad hole, the seventh, but came back with an eagle at the eighth. From that point on I really didn’t look back,” Stupples said on the Ladies European Tour website.
“It’s all to play for. I’d love to have another good round like today really. In fairness I’ve played pretty well throughout the week.”
Frenchwoman Jade Schaeffer carded a 71 and is third, four shots off the pace.
Becky Brewerton, the leading Welsh woman in the field, finished five strokes behind the leader.
Brewerton’s level par 72 today included an eagle, two birdies, two bogeys and a double-bogey.
She said: “A lot can change. We’ve been pretty lucky with the weather so far and the wind hasn’t really blown hard so I guess in a way I’ll probably be hoping for that tomorrow because I think that gives you more of a chance.
“I’d have to play an awful lot better even if the wind does get up.
“It was absolutely horrendous. Somehow by some miracle I managed to get around in level par which I’m very, very happy with.”
Australian Katherine Hull shot 75 for a six-under total and outright fifth place, while Italian Diana Luna is sixth on five-under.
