Caroline Hedwall Leads 2013 CN Canadian Women’s Open After 3rd Round; Defending Champion Lydia Ko 1 Shot Back

There were a lot of stars for Team Europe in their 18-10 thrashing of Team USA at the 2013 Solheim Cup. Among all of their great play, one star shined the brightest, Caroline Hedwall. The rising Swedish star might not yet have a win on the LPGA tour, but riding her perfect 5-0-0 record from last week’s Solheim Cup, Caroline is 18 holes away from filling that gap in her resume. Hedwall was sensational on Saturday, firing a 6-under par 64 (par is 70 here), highlighted by 7 birdies against a lone bogey. She sits atop the leaderboard at 10-under overall. Like a true champion, she says she doesn’t remember which holes she birdied, only the hole she bogeyed. To me, that shows an attitude that birdies are to be expected, no big deal. But that bogey sticks with her in some respects because that is unacceptable. That kind of belief that she is out there to make birdies and not think of that as anything special tells me that she will hold a lot of LPGA tournament trophies during her career.

16-year old defending champion Lydia Ko is hot on Caroline’s heels at 9-under, 1 shot back. More than her 3rd round 3-under 67, I also like Lydia’s attitude heading into the final round. She’s totally positive about where she is on the leaderboard.

“I was three shots back from the leader yesterday, and I’m one shot back at the moment, so I’m getting much closer to the leader. I played pretty well out there. I made five birdies and two bogeys. I was overall really happy, and I was 8 under coming into the final round last year, so one shot better, which leaves me in a good place.” – Lydia Ko

BIRDIES:

In Kyung Kim is 2 shots back at 8-under. I’ve been rooting like heck for her to win ever since her heartbreak at the 2012 Kraft Nabisco Championship.

Paula Creamer is tied for 6th at 7-under. Like I said yesterday, this woman is due for a win!

Top 15 and ties after 3rd round festooned with Solheim Cup 2013 players. Team USA with 7 players (Creamer, Gerina Piller, Brittany Lincicome, Jessica Korda, Lexi Thompson, Brittany Lang and Angela Stanford) and Team Europe with 6 players (Hedwall, Suzann Pettersen, Karine Icher, Caroline Masson, Jodi Ewart Shadoff and Charley Hull).

BOGEYS

Cristie Kerr and Angela Stanford still in top 20 after round 3, but both over par in round 3. Honestly, they looked drained physically and emotionally. I wonder if the LPGA should consider scheduling an off week after Solheim Cup, or at least a smaller tournament that some of the top players could skip.
