Catriona Matthew Holds 3 Shot Lead After 3rd Round Of 2011 Lorena Ochoa Invitational

Catriona Matthew

Scotland’s Catriona Matthew used a 3rd round 4-under 68 to push her overall score t0 11-under, good enough for a 3 shot lead going into the final round of the 2011 Lorena Ochoa Invitational. The 2009 Women’s British Open winner carded 5 birdies against a single bogey, although that lone bogey was on 17 coming in or her lead would have been more.

I’m delighted to be in the lead. I would rather be 3 shots in the lead rather than 3 behind, I.K., Suzann and Anna all back there, all capable of coming up from behind, so I’m going to have to go out there tomorrow and shoot something in the 60s, I think. – Catriona Matthew

In-Kyung Kim

Pettersen is 3 shots back, but also in the hunt is the defending champion, In-Kyung Kim. She is 4 shots back at 7-under. The 2010 winner will need to go low and probably also need for Catriona to either shoot even par or come back a shot or two.

You’ve just got to be patient on this golf course. Some holes I can’t really get to, like a few holes, there’s three from the side and but I’ve just got to feel confident in the morning and do my routines and on the tee and do the round. It could have been lower today, or yesterday, but hopefully tomorrow is my day. – In-Kyung Kim
