Amy Yang remained at the top of the leader board at the US Women’s Open after 54 holes of play, finishing Saturday with a 1-under par 69. Paired with Stacy Lewis for the third round of play at Lancaster Country Club,Yang birdied the first hole and bogeyed the second, while Lewis did the reverse. Both players birdied on the fourth and sixth holes.
Kayakers on the Conestoga River watched Lewis, then Yang, tee off across the river on the 7th hole. Lewis landed in the rough on the right, and Yang’s drive landed on the left side of the fairway. She chipped onto the green at 7 after her approach fell short. Lewis was disappointed as her putt rolled left on the high side of the hole.
The leading pair traveled through the course in close competition throughout the day. At the end of the round, Yang and Lewis were still separated by 3 strokes. They will again be the final pair for the last round on Sunday. They tee off at 2:05 p.m.
The USGA will offer coverage on usga.org. Fox 43 will broadcast the final round beginning at 2:30 p.m.
