Green sets sights on world championship
by Martin Blake
Hannah Green is in the final group at the HSBC Women's World Championship in Singapore after another 66 today, chasing her first win since 2019 on the LPGA Tour. The Australian star made six birdies and an eagle along with two bogeys in her six-under total today, highlighted by a hole-out for eagle with an eight iron shot at the par-four 10th. "Bounced, hit the pin and went in," she said of her eagle. "That was a nice bonus. I do think if it didn't hit the pin, it was going to race a little by it, probably still on the green. Yeah, that was a lot of fun and gave me some good momentum to make a couple par saves on the next two holes." Green is at 13 under par and a shot from the lead held by China's Xiyu Lin. The Korean superstar Inbee Park also is at 13 under and in the final group. "Yeah, I probably didn't hit the ball as well as yesterday but I played I guess pretty well and made sure I missed it in the right places," said Green afterward. "Had a couple bogeys out there today which were not really that soft. They were probably good bogeys, so hopefully tomorrow I can continue to keep making birdies like I have been. But yes, managed this heat." Two other Australians -- Minjee Lee and Su Oh -- are just outside the top 20 at four under par. As for Green, who is inside the top 15 in the world rankings for the first time, she wants to remain aggressive tomorrow. "Obviously Inbee is a great player and won so many tournaments, so it's going to be hard to keep chasing her but I'm excited for tomorrow," she said.
