Lee shines as Jutanugarn leads LPGA event

Lee shines as Jutanugarn leads LPGA event

Thai golfer Ariya Jutanugarn could have gone into the final round of the Canadian Women's Open with a bigger lead.

That honour falls to the ever consistent Minjee Lee who followed up her opening round 69 with a two-under-par 70 to be seven shots off the pace at five-under.

Her second-round score could have been lower, but Sharp three-putted for par from just off the green on the par-5 seventh, three-putted for bogey from 20 feet on the par-3 eighth and failed to covert a 10-footer for birdie on the par-4 ninth to close out her round.

"Feeling good", Ariya said, a week after withdrawing from the Rio Olympics because of an injury to her left knee.

The world number one was outshone by Jutanugarn, however, who holed eight birdies in her round of 64, to vault from 9th to 1st at Priddis Greens at 12 under for the tournament.

At 17-under 199, she had a two-stroke advantage over South Korea's In Gee Chun. "I'm hitting it well, driving it well, keeping it in the fairway, which is important here, rolling it well".

"After I won my first tournament, I kind of know how I play under pressure, so I know when I get really excited what I have to do", she said.

"So just know there are expectations, but I'm not going to think about it". "Through bad shots and good shots, they're supporting me and give me a little bit of extra energy and positive vibes".

South Korea's Sei Young Kim carded a round of 68 to pull into a tie for third at 12 under with Northern Ireland's Stephanie Meadow, who shot 69.
