Australian Su Oh will have to chase South Korea’s top two golfers into the final round if she is to claim her first LPGA Tour title with victory at the event in Galloway, New Jersey.
Most important points:
- Oh is 7 under par for the tournament on his way to the third and final round
- South Korea’s Jin Young Ko and Inbee Park lead the field with 11-under
- Oh recently finished in a tie for second place at the LPGA Tour event in Oregon
Oh, whose LPGA rookie year was 2016, carded a 6-under-par 65 to be 7-under after two rounds.
She is four shots off the pace and in a share of sixth position.
From the back nine, Oh birdied the 10th, 12th and 18th holes and added five more birdies – along with two bogeys – after the turn to climb the leaderboard from 51st position.
Oh had her best result of the year a fortnight ago when she tied for second in Portland. She will have to produce one more sparkly round in the final round in Galloway to chase down those above her.
World number two Jin Young Ko and third-ranked Inbee Park are both 11-under, two shots away from their closest challenger, Patty Tavatanakit of Thailand.
Park made three birdies from her last five holes, while Ko played mornings at the windy Bay Course at Seaview and ran five birdies over a six-hole run on the first nine while both rounds of 65 cards.
Of the other Australians competing alongside Oh, Hannah Green, winner of the 2019 Women’s PGA Championship, is second best at 4-under after a second consecutive round of 69.
Sarah Kemp (69) and Katherine Kirk (71) are both 2-under.
