Yani Tseng Maintains Lead Going Into Final Round Of 2012 Kia Classic; Can Anybody Catch Her?

Yani Tseng

The express train to the World Golf Hall of Fame is still on track for the awesome Yani Tseng. Going in the final round of the 2012 Kia Classic she has the field right where she wants them, in her rear view mirror. She is so good that even luck is breaking her way. She sliced her tee shot on 18 to a cart path, where it skidded across a bridge and down the path to rest almost to the green. She took a drop and salvaged par on what looked like disaster when her ball sliced off the tee. It’s all going her way. Her closest competitor, and maybe her only true threat, is former world #1 Jiyai Shin three shots back at 9-under. Sun Young Yoo is 5 shots back at 7-under, as is Caroline Hedwall, and did go 5-under on Saturday (Hedwall went 2-under, including a creative up and down with an inverted club). Still, I don’t expect Yoo to go 5-under again. Even if she did, I don’t think Yani will stay at 12-under. Look for 14 or 15-under as a winning score. Unless NiNi (her nickname) stumbles and comes back to the field, it might turn into a two woman battle between her and Jiyai.
