Michelle Wie, Ai Miyazato, Tiffany Joh In Three Way Tie Atop 2011 CN Canadian Women’s Open Leaderboard After Third Round

Michelle Wie

LPGA star Michelle Wie joined Ai Miyazato and Tiffany Joh atop the leaderboard at the 2011 CN Canadian Women’s Open at 12-under. In a summer awash with lackluster finishes a defense of her title in Quebec would resuscitate what was becoming a lost year. There is a long way to go, however. The way this course is playing I would not count anybody in the top 19 out of it. Michelle shot a 5 birdie, 1 bogey 4-under 68. What is surprising is that it has been her putting that has put her in this position Saturday. She didn’t really take advantage of her length. Only 1 of her 5 birdies was on a par 5. She parred the other 3 par 5s in round 3, unlike the first 2 rounds where she birdied 3 of 4 par 5s in each round. She also had a beautiful sand save on the 8th hole, chipping out to a foot of the pin. Michelle was also inches away on a putt on 18 from leading outright.

Ai Miyazato

After a 1st round 65 and 2nd round 68, Ai Miyazato continued to slip by 3 shots per round with a 3rd round 71. Normally, a 1-under score would be fine on moving day, but not on this course in this event. Instead of pulling away from the field, Ai-chan finds herself surrounded by players in great position to deny her a wire to wire win. She started well, with 3 birdies against 1 bogey on the way to 2-under on the front 9. Her momentum was stymied on the back 9, as she suffered another bogey and could manage no better than par on the other holes. Par after par after par will have a player moving backwards in this tournament.

Tiffany Joh

On day 1, Pernilla Lindberg and Ai Miyazato shot 65s to share the lead. On day 2, Angela Stanford shot 65 to share the lead with Miyazato. On day 3, it was Tiffany Joh’s turn to shoot 65, joining Miyazato and Wie in the lead. The 2011 rookie is poised to have her best finish ever on the LPGA tour, whether she wins or not. Joh has had a decorated amateur career. She won the US Women’s Amateur Public Links title in 2006 and 2008. She was a four time All-American and All Pac-10 at UCLA, including Pac-10 Player of the Year twice. After tying for the lead at the end of regulation play at the 2008 NCAA Division I Championships, she lost in a playoff to Azahara Munoz to finish 2nd. After turning pro, she was a 2-time winner on the Futures Tour. A win at the 2011 CN Canadian Open would be her biggest win ever. In addition to her golf ability, Tiffany Joh has a sparkling personality, funny and witty. She also has musical ability.
