CN Canadian Women's Open. Caroline Hedwall Heads To The Top. August 25 2013

CNCanadianWomensOpen_188x84 Caroline Hedwall heads the leaderboard in the Canadian Women's Open at the Royal Mayfair Golf Club, in Canada. Caroline Hedwall / Getty Caroline shot a -6 under par 64 on Saturday, which tied the course record at Royal Mayfair Golf Club, and pushed her three-day total to -10 under par  After her success in the Solheim Cup last week, Caroline is feeling no pain, and was inspired by her playing partners Suzann Petterson and Brittany Linicombe;  " I was a little tired on Monday, Tuesday and also Wednesday, but when the tournament starts I think last week just gave me a lot of energy and self‑confidence, so I can't feel anything. It was definitely inspiring playing with Suzann and Brittany today, We hit it close and we made a lot of putts, so it was a lot of fun. I'm just looking forward to tomorrow, it will be exciting playing in the last group hopefully.  I won on the European Tour, now I'm just waiting for my first LPGA victory.  We'll see, hopefully it comes tomorrow.” Defending Champion Lydia Ko is just one shot back at -9 under par, tied in second place with Suzann. Lydia is still very much in this competition, and like all good Champions she wants to hold on to this title; “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.” Suzann said she was not tired at all after her efforts last week; “I just feel like from a general standpoint usually coming off of Solheim where your mindset is such an aggressive mode that you usually feed off pretty well the following week because you kind of keep wanting to make putts.  You're kind of in that kind of frame of mind.  This is why we work at it, this is why we train.  I'm totally fine.  I'm not tired at all.” Everyone in New Zealand is rooting for Lydia, and that includes me. The scoring is still pretty close so someone could shoot a really low round tomorrow and seize the Title.
