Ally McDonald holds slim lead after the third round of the Drive On Championship. Also, she’s on the verge of winning her first LPGA title. The American got four birdies in five holes to earn 13-under 203 in the third round at the Reynolds Lake Oconee.
McDonald said that she was excited to be in the position she’s in right now. She is preparing herself mentally for the next round. Currently in second place is Bianca Pagdanganan from the Philippines. She got 69 in the third round for a total of 204.
Danielle Kang is in third place with 205, Carlota Ciganda in fourth place, and Katherine Kirk in fifth place. McDonald is currently World Number 62. She placed third twice in the LPGA, which were her best finishes so far.
McDonald Holds Slim Lead
According to the best pay per head bookie, McDonald hopes to win her first LPGA title during her 28th birthday. The LPGA created the event to fill the gap between US tournaments. It is the result of the cancellation of the Asian events due to the pandemic.
Gambling software providers learned that there are no spectators on the course to prevent the coronavirus spread. However, people on boats honked every time there’s a good shot from golfers.
Kang celebrated her birthday last Tuesday. She won the first two LPGA events in August. She said that she’s trying to play more aggressively and maintain her attitude from start to end. However, it was her playstyle that got her in trouble in the 16th hole. Kang’s tee shot went out of bounds. She ended up with a double bogey for the hole.
You can still open a bookie website and accept wagers on future LPGA tournaments this year. Although they canceled some tournaments, there is still plenty of golfing action left in 2020.
