Yani Tseng shot her third straight 4-under 68 Saturday to take a four-stroke lead into the final round of the Women's British Open at Royal Birkdale in Southport, England.
The 21-year-old rising star from Taiwan took advantage of the short 472-yard par-5 final hole by hitting an 8-iron to within 20 feet with her second shot. She rolled in the eagle putt to finish off her round, doubling her cushion over Australian Katherine Hull.
"I played really well again," said Tseng, who is at 12 under and has just one bogey through 54 holes. "I really enjoyed the big crowd out there. They clap on every shot and I showed them my big smile all the way around."
Hull played a flawless third round, including birdies on the last five holes to finish with a 66.
Overton leads as challengers go low
Jeff Overton shot a 4-under 66 for a three-stroke lead entering the final round of the inaugural Greenbrier Classic at White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. Overton, the second-round leader, overcame a pair of early bogeys with a solid back nine. He's at 18 under through three rounds on the Old White course.
Overton kept the lead despite a pair of others flirting with 59s. D.A. Points three-putted the par-5 17th for bogey, finished with a 61 and is alone in second at 15 under. Boo Weekley shot a 67 to reach 13 under. Earlier, J.B. Holmes couldn't convert a 10-foot eagle try at No. 17 and shot 60. - AP
