Lindsey Wright will be looking for her first top 10 of the year in tomorrow’s final round of the Shoprite LPGA Classic.
The Victorian has fired rounds of 68 and 70 to be at four-under par and tied for 14th position heading into Sunday. Karrie Webb, who is defending champion this week and Sarah Kemp are just a further shot back and tied for 19th.
On a day when the wind got up in the afternoon, current Rolex World No. 2 Stacy Lewis took full advantage of being out early. She carded a flawless round of 8-under-par 63 to lead the tournament at 12-under-par. The posted four birdies on the front and back nine respectively for a very consistent round.
Lewis will take a one shot lead into Sunday over Christina Kim (67), with another American Jennifer Johnson (70) a further stroke adrift. Swede Anna Nordqvist and American Gerina Piller are at eight-under-par.
It has been a good tournament for the Aussie contingent with five of the seven making the cut. Katherine Kirk carded a three-under-par on Saturday to finish at one-under-par and is tied for 36th. Stacey Keating also made the cut, she is at one-over, which was the cut number and tied for 55th.
Unfortunately Sarah Jane Smith (+4) and Julia Boland (+4) both missed out.
