Ryu aims to break records
South Korea’s So Yeon Ryu is aiming to break records and her LPGA victory drought in the final round of the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open on Sunday.
Ryu currently tops the leaderboard on -20 after carding a five-under 67 in round three at the London Hunt and Country Club in Ontario.
She is on course to break the tournament record of -18 which Suzann Pettersen set in 2009 and Annika Sorenstam’s LPGA Tour record of -26.
“I haven’t won any tournaments in the last two years. If I’m going to win this tournament, I’m going to break that. I really want to break it, I really want to stop it,” 24-year-old told ESPN.
“I think my lowest record is 29-under when I was 16 at the Asian Games. If I have the chance, I want to break my career record, and also if I can I want to break another LPGA record.”
Ryu has already broken one record since the start of the tournament, carding 63 in the first round on Thursday to record the lowest ever score on the course.
But the record was equaled just a day later with Spain’s Azahara Munoz matching the score on Saturday to storm into title contention.
Munoz currently trails Ryu by four strokes, tied for second place with South Korea’s Na Yeon Choi, on -16.
Inbee Park, also South Korean, holds fourth place on -14 after carding 65 to record the third round’s second best score.
