World Ladies Championship, Mission Hills, China. Inbee In Control March 09 2013

Inbee Park is in control of the World Ladies Championship at Mission Hills in China, sitting on top of the leaderboard at -14 under par for the tournament.   Inbee Park tee's off, watched by Suzann Petterson & Carlota Ciganda / LET Inbee had a third round of -3 under par 69, on the Sandbelt Trails Course to lead the World Ladies Championship by two strokes from Suzann Petterson of Norway. Inbee admitted she had started the round badly, but was happy to recover; " I had a really bad start today, I bogeyed two of the first four holes but I’m happy with the way I finished today with five birdies after the two bogies. That’s very good momentum going into tomorrow. I’m just a little bit disappointed with my ball striking; it wasn't as good as yesterday but my putting was getting much better. The golf course is playing a bit firmer today, I think because it was in the afternoon and was a bit drier so it was a little bit different condition for putting and I think that worked out a little bit better for me." Suzann climbed up the leaderboard with a third round of  -5 under par 67, to be two shots off the lead at -12 under par. Suzann said she is playing good golf and is excited about the last round; " I played decent golf today but a bit disappointing not finishing stronger on the last hole. I have a lot of faith in my game, I’m playing good golf and excited that I have one more round." Soo Jin Yang of South Korea is in third place after her steady third round of -4 under par 68. Carlota Ciganda was in contention for most of the day, but suffered a triple bogey 7 on the 17th hole, which dropped her back to fourth place at -8 under par, now six shots off the lead. In the Team event the  South Korean pair of Inbee Park and Ha-Neul Kim lead the competition by ten shots over Norway, represented by Suzann Petterson and Marianne Skarpnord.
