While Lydia Ko seemed destined for a solitary breakaway after her first two laps completed in -12 (65, 66), during the Tour Championship in Naples, the feat of the third lap is to be credited to Leona Maguire. By putting on the trifle of 9 birdies for no bogey, the 27-year-old Irishwoman, 20th in the world, rose to the top of the leaderboard next to the n ° 3, current leader of the Race, including the 70 (-2) marked a relative halt.
Top 10 goal for Boutier
The two players (-15 total) will share the last part and it will take a feat for their pursuers Jeongeun Lee and Gemma Dryburgh, relegated to five strokes, to hope to get ahead of them this Sunday at the clubhouse.
Still in the top 20, the French Céline Boutier (69, -5 total) can hope to grab a top 10, which would be the twelfth of a remarkable season of regularity.
