LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) – Amy Yang shot a 1-under 69 and maintained a three-shot lead over Stacy Lewis through three rounds of the U.S. Women’s Open.
Paired together in Saturday’s final grouping, Yang answered every time Lewis tried to trim her three-shot deficit.
Yang, who shared the lead after 54 holes last year, opened a four-stroke lead at the 13th before Lewis capitalized on a two-stroke swing at the 14th, closing within two. But Lewis had a three-putt bogey at the 17th en route to a 69, giving Yang a three-stroke advantage heading into the final round. Yang, at 8-under 202, and Lewis, at 5-under 205, will be paired again Sunday.
