Granada one clear in Naples
Julieta Granada will enjoy one-stroke lead into the final round of the CME Group Tour Championship.
Granada shot a 70 in the third round and is nine-under-par for the event – one clear of Morgan Pressel and Carlota Ciganda
“I played pretty well today; super consistent,” Granada told the official LPGA website.
“I hit a lot of fairways and I hit a lot of greens. I made some good putts out there. So I’m looking forward to tomorrow, see what tomorrow brings.”
Granada started the day with a birdie on the first and added another at the eighth to go two-under before the turn.
Her back nine was not as impressive as the two birdies she carded en route to the clubhouse were nullified by two drop shots.
The Race to the CME Globe will also come down to Sunday as Lydia Ko, So Yeon Ryu, Michelle Wie and Stacy Lewis all find themselves within six strokes of the lead and in excellent position to take home the inaugural title.
As it stands, Stacy Lewis is in first place but is closely followed by Lydia Ko. Lewis is currently sitting in a tie for 10th while Ko is tied for fifth.
“I’ve been thinking about all these awards and the Race to the Globe that kind of stuff for three, four weeks now. Unfortunately that’s not going to go away overnight,” Lewis said.
“I’ve just got to go hit some greens tomorrow. That’s all I’m going to try to do. If the putts go in, great; if they don’t, I’m going to take ‑ any par on this then golf course good.”
