Green third in LA Open
by Martin Blake
Hannah Green posted her best result of the LPGA Tour season when she carded her fourth consecutive round in the 60s at the LA Open today. The 24-year-old Green finished tied-third behind Canada's Brooke Henderson after a closing 66 today at Wilshire Country Club,with overnight leader Jessica Korda shooting a one-over 73 and hauled in by Henderson in a thrilling finish. Henderson at 16 under was just two shots ahead of Green, whose day was highlighted by an eagle at the par-four 14th hole where she almost drove the green. Rookie professional Gabi Ruffels closed with a 71 to finish tied-17th, continuing her impressive form. Green has had three consecutive top-20s to show the value of her work in the off-season. "I feel like I'm pretty close. Nate (Blasko) and I, my caddie, have been talking about it, and we feel like we're not far off a win." Leaderboard
