Difficult day, as Hinako Shibuno leads with -4.

The Sportspedia

Now the players are playing on the same course (Champions Golf Club, Houston) so the conditions were equally difficult for everyone. And so they were! Only two players scored under par today! After three days of play at the US Women’s Open there are only four players under par!

The best player so far has been the non-LPGA card-player Hinako Shibuno (JPN) who leads with -4 although she had a day of +3, with four bogeys and a birdie.

Second is Amy Olson (USA), the author of a hole in one on Day 1. She is on -3. Tied on -1 are Moriya Jutanugarn (THA) and Ji Yeong Kim2 (KOR). Amateur player Kaitlyn Papp (USA), Meghan Khang (USA), Lydia Ko (NZL) and Yealimi Noh (USA) are T5, on par.

Amateur Swedish player, Linn Grant (SWE), started the day second but had a terrible quadruple bogey in the 10th for a +7 today and she is now T19, +3. Fellow Swedish amateurs, Maja Stark and Ingrid Lindblad right ahead, T15 and +2. Another is Cristie Kerr (USA) is ahead, T9 +1. She is playing in pain after a golf cart accident last week.

The only players to score under par today were 19 year-old KLPGA player, Hae Ran Ryu (KOR). She scored -1 and is T9 with +1, and Ji Yeong Kim2, on an other-level -4. Also in T9 we have three other South Korean players: Jin Young Ko, A Lim Kim, and Sei Young Kim.
