Lydia Ko is happy with her third round despite dropping a shot on the on the 18th hole to be tied for the lead with Candie Kung at Canada Pacific Women’s Open.
The teenager missed a par putt from 10 feet at the 18th for her first bogey in 46 holes for a 12 under par third round alongside American golfer Kung.
“That was my first bogey in two days. I’ll take that,” Ko said.
“I played really solid. You never know what’s going to happen; I just have to play my own game.”
Kung produced four birdies in a mixed one under 71 to stay in the hunt.
“I hit the ball good and it was actually one of the best ball-striking days I had all week,” Kung said.
“I just missed a couple putts here and there – those were all wrong reads.”
American Alison Lee shot a 66 to get within two of the leading pair followed by Karine Icher a further shot back.
A birdie-filled 67 from English star Charley Hull pushes her in to the group on seven under, while world number one Inbee Park keeps her in contention six off the pace.
