Ryu Hae-ran takes lead in Chevron Championship after storm-hit third round

Posted : 21 April 2024

South Korea's Ryu Hae-ran surged ahead in the Chevron Championship, seizing a one-stroke lead over Nelly Korda and Brooke Henderson after the conclusion of the storm-interrupted third round. Completing a five-under 67, Ryu finished the round at Carlton Woods with a total of 11-under par 205, making three crucial birdies on the 13th, 14th, and 18th holes to secure the lead.


Despite facing challenging conditions, including cold temperatures and strong winds exacerbated by overnight rain, Ryu displayed resilience and focus. Reflecting on the tough conditions, she emphasized the importance of maintaining a positive mindset and focusing on her swing. This performance marks a significant opportunity for Ryu, who is pursuing her first major championship victory after being named LPGA Rookie of the Year last year.


Meanwhile, Nelly Korda, aiming for her fifth consecutive LPGA victory to match the tour's historical record, remained a formidable contender with a third-round 69, while Brooke Henderson's impressive final par earned her a 64, the lowest round since the event's relocation from Rancho Mirage. Korda's recent winning streak includes notable victories at the Drive On Championship, Seri Pak and Ford championships, and the LPGA Match Play, highlighting her dominant form in 2024.


Additionally, Thailand's Atthaya Thitikul initially held the lead with three birdies in the early stages of the third round. However, a series of late bogeys dropped her into a tie for fourth place alongside Sweden's Maja Stark and South Korea's Im Jin-hee. As the tournament heads into the final round, contenders like Korda, Henderson, and Ryu are poised for an exciting showdown, each eager to secure victory in this prestigious women's major championship.
