Green starts fast for 64 to take LPGA lead

Green starts fast for 64 to take LPGA lead”

She went into Sunday one shot off the lead but had three bogeys on the back nine on the way to a 74 that dropped her into a tie for fifth. There's so much golf left, just stay focused.' ...

Green began the fourth round with the lead and still had a one shot lead through 10 holes until she made back-to-back bogeys on the 11th and 12th. It was her first win on tour.

"I said when I got my card this was the event I was most looking forward to", said Knight.

"If I ever get nervous or uncomfortable, I'm like, 'I have everything to gain, nothing to lose.' I know I need a top finish and that's what I'm trying to do", Knight said.

Mi Jung Hur, the area resident who won the Indy Women in Tech Championship last week, followed her opening 68 with a 75. "I'm like, 'Jaye, you're not there yet.' So today that was coming in my mind. If I have a good hole, hearing my mom and my aunt scream, it's amusing, but it's really great". Birdies at 12 and 17 boosted her to the outright lead before she gave a shot back at the last.

Stephanie Meadow of Northern Ireland, who was No. 112 on the money list, made an 18-foot birdie putt on the final hole to keep her card by moving into the top 100 and avoid returning to the LPGA Q-Series at the end of the year.

She was at 14-under 199.

Green, who has fought through some low moments since a disappointing tie for fifth at the US Women's Open in early June, couldn't put a foot wrong in the early going on the Old American Golf Club course at The Colony, Texas.

"Being six years on tour, I kind of feel like we all pay our dues", Green said. "I really saw it going in visually, and to see it go in and everyone screaming, it was awesome".

She grew up about an hour's drive away in Aledo, Texas.

It's a great chance for Americans - they occupy the first four spots on the leaderboard - to win for only the third time this year on the LPGA Tour.

South Korea's Sei Young Kim (67), a nine-time LPGA victor, is the next closest pursuer, sitting five shots back.

This is the final full field of the year on the LPGA Tour.
