Sue Oh led the inaugural Australian WPGA Championship with two shots with one round to play at Royal Queensland.
Sue Oh is on the verge of breaking a seven-year drought after securing a two-shot lead in the final round of the opening Australian WPGA in Royal Queensland on Sunday.
LPGA player Oh went on to shoot seven-under par with 68 shots in the third round and two clearings from nearest rivals Sarah-Jane Smith and Grace Kim.
Kim, who leads after two rounds, fired 71 shots on Saturday when Smith had 69, including an Eagle in the Para-Four Fifth, Carrie went into the debate to become the first holder of the Web Cup.
Oh, whose most recent win was at the 2015 Royal Pines Ladies Masters, says Sunday’s victory will boost a much-needed confidence.
“You lose a lot more than you win this game,” Oh said.
“I hope I can do it. It would be nice if you could reassure yourself.
“It’s always a bit annoying to finish second, but if I can knock on that door, I’m sure I’ll be able to get the job done.”
Kim, a former Australian amateur champion who became a professional in September last year, was excited about the prospect of “chasing” Oh on Sunday.
“It’s a little worrying that (Saturday) I didn’t get as many holes as I was given, but in the end, I couldn’t do anything for my score, I kept it.
“Being able to chase someone (Sunday) is quite exciting.
Kim would also be more confident than defeating Oh in last month’s sandbelt invitation to Victoria.
“It’s really comforting that I’m able to compete against them (LPGA Tour players) and obviously they’re quite high in the LPGA rankings, so I love where I am now,” Kim said.
“I’m just enjoying my week.”
