Lim Hee-jung (Doosan E&C) led the field in the third round of the Sangsangin-Korea Economic TV Open 2023 (total prize fund of 1.2 billion won – winner’s share of 216 million won) on the Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) Tour.
Lim carded three birdies, three bogeys and a double-bogey for a 2-over-par 74 in the third round of the tournament at Lakewood Country Club (Par 72) in Yangju, South Korea on Sunday.
While she faltered a bit in the third round for a 10-under-par 206 total, she was able to pull away from her competitors in the earlier rounds to take the lead.
Lim has had some ups and downs this year due to injury. She finished tied for sixth at the Hana Financial Group Singapore Women’s Open, tied for fifth at the Nexen-St. Nine Masters and tied for ninth at the Doosan Match Play Championship, but has been in a slump with several missed cuts and withdrawals.
However, she showed signs of rebounding earlier this month when she tied for fourth at the Daebo Household Open and will be looking for her first win of the season and sixth overall on the KLPGA. She had a rough day, but if she can regain her form in the final round, she should be able to achieve her goal.
Behind Lim is Lee 바카라사이트 So Mi (Daebang E&C) with a 9-under par 207. She is one shot off the lead.
Kim Min-seon 7 (Daebang E&C) and Ji Han-sol (Dongbu E&C) are in third and fourth place, respectively.
Lee Ye-won (KB Financial Group), who leads the prize money, Women’s Grand Prize points, and lowest score categories, shot a 6-under-par 210 and is tied for fifth place, up four spots from the previous day.
