Stephanie Meadow’s hopes of mounting a moving day charge failed to get going on day three of the Handa Australian Women’s Open.
The Jordanstown professional took to Grange Golf Club in the early hours of this morning with birdies on her mind but again struggled to hit top form in South Australia.
In the end she managed two birdies but four bogeys on the card saw her sign for a two-over par 74 putting her well down the field in a tie for 60th at four-over par.
In an uncharacteristic display, Meadow managed to hit just 6 of 14 fairways and 12 of 18 greens while she was 0 from 2 on sand saves and required 31 putts. She’ll now be hoping to finish on a high on Sunday in order to take momentum into the coming weeks.
At the top, American Nelly Korda has stormed into a three-shot lead after recording a superb five-under 67 to take control of the tournament.
