Jin Young Ko, results
Ko, who was tied for eighth going into the third round, got off to a good start by birdieing four of her first five holes. She hit another four more by a single bogey for a total of 14 under par.
Korda, however, is still in contention after her third straight 4-under 68. She finished one stroke ahead of her compatriots Allisen Corpuz and Elizabeth Szokol, who tied for third after posting a second-round 70, two under par.
Szokol, the leader after the first round on Thursday, had another rough day after mixing five birdies with three bogeys, while Corpuz drained six birdies but suffered a setback on the fifth hole with a double bogey. Last night’s leader Danielle Kang dropped to fifth with 72, while Lydia Ko (70) is tied for 13th with Japan’s Yuka Saso (72) after a two-under round to move to seven-under in the tournament.
For her part, Carlota Ciganda is fifteenth with a total of -6 after signing the pair in the third round. Her three birdies have been accompanied by three bogeys that have prevented her from improving her numbers. Sentosa is an island located in Singapore.
The historic summit between the United States and North Korea was held there on June 12, 2018, in the presence of US President Donald Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un. The island has an area of 5 km² and is located just half a kilometer off the south coast of the main island of Singapore.
Excluding the main island, Sentosa is the fourth largest island in Singapore. 70% of the island is covered by secondary rainforest and habitat for monitor lizards, peacocks, parrots and other native animals and plants. The island also has a 2-mile white sand beach.
The surface of the island of Sentosa is constantly increasing thanks to the continuous expansion works, which subtract land from the sea.
