Honda LPGA Thailand, Rookie Ariya Has three Shot Lead Starting the Final Round February 23 2013

Ariya Jutanugarn European Tour rookie Ariya Jutanugarn had a 2-under par third round 70 on Saturday and will now take a handsome three-shot lead  into the final round of the Honda LPGA Thailand 2013 at the Siam Country Club, Pattaya Old Course, Chonburi, Thailand. Ariya has a tournament total of -11 under par, Stacy Lewis is one of those players at -8 under par, Stacy had a disappointing third round of 76, +4 over par. The other two players tied with Stacy are Beatriz Recari, who had an even par 72 round and Se Ri Pak joined them with her -1 under par, 71, third round. Speaking after her round, Ariya said there was a lot of pressure playing in front of her home crowd; " I did feel a lot of pressure early on, I felt the whole Thai people hope was on my back. After a few holes people starting to cheer me up, and that made all the pressure gone away. I should do better than a 2-under." Beatriz said she had taken a lot of positives from last year, and is hoping for a win this year; " Last year I take a lot of positives with making every single cut and I played every tournament. That obviously gave me a lot of confidence because I was very consistent but I set up some high goals for this year. I finished tied fourth last week and I just want to be in contention more than I was last year and hopefully get some wins as well. I think it’s just going to be a matter of making putts and not making too many silly mistakes. I think today I just missed in the wrong spot and that cost me a few bogeys. Just got to learn from that and just tomorrow have to be a little bit smarter if the pins are as tough as today."
