Lead changes again at the Ladies German Open
I’ve been keeping track of this tournament because Michelle Wie is playing there.
Wie wasn’t able to move up in the standings today, but another 18-year old did. Amy Yang of South Korea shot a course record nine-under-par 63 to take a five stroke lead into the final round of the HypoVereinsbank Ladies German Open, presented by Audi.
Wie remains in seventh place, after a third round score of 70 to finish the day at nine-under-par. She shares this spot with four other players.
Meanwhile, yesterday’s leader, Laura Fairclough shot a 72 to remain at 10 under par, and dropped into fourth place.
The 18-year-old Amy Wang turned professional in October 2006, to far less fanfare than Michelle Wie. She is currently the Ladies European Tour’s leading money earner, after having finished second last week in Switzerland.
The Ladies European Tour is considered by some the “minor leagues” to the LPGA’s “major league.” This is the first LET event held in Germany in seven years.
