Pillar tops suspended LPGA Bahamas eventGerina Piller topped the leaderboard at 10 under on Saturday when third-round play in the Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic was suspended due to darkness.
Piller was 3 under for the round with nine holes left on Atlantis Resort’s Ocean Club course. She made 40-foot birdie putts on Nos. 3 and 4.
Play was delayed Thursday because of rain and slowed Friday by high wind.
Lexi Thompson was a stroke back along with Sandra Gal, Brooke Pancake, Kelly Shon, Kim Sei-young and Perrine Delacour. Thompson was 7 under for the round with two holes left. Gal had nine holes to go, Pancake 11, Shon eight, Kim 11, and Delacour six.
Second-ranked Park In-bee and No. 3 Stacy Lewis were in the group at 8 under. Park had 11 holes left, and Lewis three. Top-ranked Lydia Ko was 4 under with three holes left.
“I feel good,” said Lewis, 6 under for the round. “I would have liked to have finished that round off today, but just going to bed with a good number posted so far, I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”
Thompson played alongside Lewis. “We were talking about that we probably had the best golf going on today, we had so many birdies,” Thompson said.
