Green's 64 keeps her in Thai hunt
by Martin Blake
Hannah Green reeled off a stunning 64 to stay in contention at the Honda LPGA Thailand event today. The Australian had eight birdies and not a single bogey in her score, which puts her overall sixth, just three shots from the lead entering the final round at 15 under par. Thai star Patty Tavatanakit leads at 18 under par. Green has finished second and third in her past two starts on the LPGA Tour and is pushing for a world top-10 ranking for the first time, currently slotted at No. 13. "It's kind of crazy to be saying that I left stuff out there when I shot eight under," said Green, who had birdie chances at both the last two holes that did not fall. Katherine Kirk (11 under) is also having a good week at Siam Country Club near Pattaya City. As for Kirk, she will have to go low again tomorrow to have a chance. "I think I've always been one to look at leaderboards, so I got to make sure I'm focusing on my own game and not getting too caught up," she said. "It's a birdie-fest again this week, so making sure I'm giving myself the best opportunities to make birdies and pars, that's probably what I learned from last week and hopefully, yeah, capitalize on all the opportunities I give myself." MATT Jones is the leading Australian, tied-14th at two under par, through two rounds of the Wells Fargo Championship on the US PGA Tour.
