Lydia Ko, Jiyai Shin Separate Themselves From The Field After 3rd Round Of 2013 ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open

Saturday was moving day at the 2013 ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open. Teen phenom Lydia Ko and Jiyai Shin moved away from the rest of the field as both sit atop the leaderboard at 17-under, six shots ahead of 3rd place Beatriz Recari and 8 shots ahead of a quartet of players tied for 4th, including 2nd round leader Mariajo Uribe. While anything could happen, it appears this will be a de facto match play round for the title. One might usually go with the veteran, Jiyai Shin, but Lydia is so special it’s tough for me to pick against her. Ko is also the reigning US Women’s Amateur champion, so one on one match play-like pressure isn’t an issue for her.
