On a day when Canadians came in with some solid scores at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic in Waterloo, Ont., China’s Shanshan Feng posted a 67 of her own to create some separation from the rest of the field.
Feng goes into the final round at Grey Silo at 15 under, two shots up on Inbee Park and Michelle Wie, who says she pressed too much early in the round and plans to approach Sunday’s final round with a different attitude.
“I think I tried to go too low in the beginning today, so I’m just going to go out there and there’s birdie holes,” said Wie.
“I’ll just hit the shots that I need to hit. Birdies will happen. Nothing good will happen out of me forcing anything, so I’m just going to go out there and try to play the best as I can and see how many birdies I can make,” she said.
Park, meanwhile, says the important goal on Saturday was to stay in contention.
“I don’t know where Shanshan’s going to finish, but I know there’s a lot of opportunities on this golf course,” she said.
“There is a possibility that we can go really low, so I think I’m just happy to be in contention for the final round. Yeah, I feel like my putting’s getting better and better, so hopefully, I can hole some putts (Sunday),” said Park.
Hamilton’s Alena Sharp shot a six-under 65 and is tied for 23rd at six under heading into Sunday. Sue Kim of Langley, B.C., had a 67 to move into a tie for 33rd at five under.
