Kim takes good lead into final round of Mediheal Championship
South Korea’s Sei Young Kim shot a 4-under 68 to take a three-stroke lead into the final third round of the LPGA Mediheal Championship.
Kim rebounded from an opening bogey with an eagle on the par-5 fifth and the 26-year-old added birdies on the par-4 11th and par-5 15th and 18th to be 10-under after the third round .
What made her round even more impressive was that she was playing through a back injury that is curbing her ability to play her natural attacking style.
Kim said after the round: “It’s really tough to escape from the rough because today’s pin positions really tough.
“Just try to get the right number, that’s all key today. … Some holes I have to avoid the pin.
“But I try to attack the pin, but I couldn’t because I miss it (fairway) on some holes.”
England’s Charley Hull sits in second place on 7-under after shooting a 70 while Puerto Rico’s Maria Torres was 5 under after a 71.
Second-round leader So Yeon Ryu shot a 79 to drop into a tie for 20th at even par. She had four bogeys and a triple bogey on a tough day.
