KLPGA: 2010 KB Star Tour Finale Rd 3

Round 3 of the 2010 KB Star Tour Finale started with three golfers tied for the lead.  Two of those golfers, Shin Ae Ahn and Bo Mee Lee, have been among the top golfers on tour in 2010.  The third, Sung Ah Yim, is trying to rebuild her career in Korea after having spent the past few years playing in America.  They were all tied at 11 under par to start the day, with another star, So Yeon Ryu, a shot back at 10 under.

Quiet please!

Shin Ae Ahn did not have a good day.  Her troubles started on the par 5 6th, where she made a double bogey.  She went out in 2 over par 38, and made only one birdie all day.  In the end she shot a 75, and fell well off the pace.

But the other two golfers continued to be strong, and by the end of the round were still tied atop the leaderboard.  Yim’s best stretch was a three birdie run on holes 12 to 14, while Lee was more steady the whole day.  In the end, both shot 69s to finish at 14 under par.

Ryu also managed a 69 to remain one shot behind the leaders, but now in solo third place.  She had four birdies and one bogey on the day.

Hee Kyung Seo started with a birdie, made a bogey soon after that, and was up and down the rest of the day.  She shot a 70 to finish at 10 under, tying for fourth, four shots back.  The defending champ has one more round to see if she can win her first Major of the season.

Hee Kyung also recently appeared in Korea's version of InStyle Magazine. Which pair of shoes to wear?

A great round was turned in by another former LPGA golfer, Jin Joo Hong.  Hong shot a 65 to zoom up to 10 under, tying Seo for fourth.  Weirdly, yet another former LPGA player, Hyun Hee Moon, also shot a 65, although her total is 7 under, tied for 10th.

One more day, and three stars are bunched at the top.  One of them might be the year’s final Major winner tomorrow!
