Had it not been for bogeys on two of her last three holes, we might have been pretty much declaring the champion of the CP Women’s Open at Priddis Greens in Calgary a day early.
Thailand’s Aniya Jutanagarn was bogey-free at seven under on the day going on to the par four 16th, which she bogeyed along with the par five 18.
“I had two bogeys the last three holes, but I still shot five under, so it’s still good,” said Jutanugarn, ranked second in the world, who finished the day with a 67.
At 17 under after the second round, Jutanugarn still holds a two-shot lead on In Gee Chun of South Korea, who shot a 66 on Saturday to set up what appears to be a two-horse race in Sunday’s final round.
Jutanugarn is five ahead, and Chun three ahead of Sei Young Kim and Stephanie Meadow, both tied for third at 12 under.
“I keep the eye on me,” said Jutanugarn, emphasizing that she’ll only concern herself with her own game in Sunday’s final round, which will begin at 10:45 a.m. local time.
“I really want to have fun and I really want to be happy on the course. That’s all I want for (Sunday),” she said.
