Chella Choi takes lead at LPGA ClassicMOBILE, Alabama - Anna Nordqvist had what she described as her first “really good putting day” since 2009 and shot a course-record 61 on Saturday in the third round of the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic.
Korea’s Chella Choi shot her second straight 6-under 66 to take a one-stroke lead over Jessica Korda and Nordqvist, who is seeking her first win since capturing the LPGA Championship and season-ending LPGA Tour Championship as a rookie in 2009.
Choi twice made three straight birdies to move to 17 under, and has made only two bogeys in three rounds on The Crossings course at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s Magnolia Grove complex. Her best finish in four-plus years on the tour is a tie for second in the Manulife tournament in Canada last March. AP
