Davies takes 2-shot lead into final round of Senior LPGA
FRENCH LICK, Ind. (AP) Laura Davies recovered from a pair of early bogeys Tuesday for a 2-under 70 that gave her a two-shot lead going into the final round of the Senior LPGA Championship as she goes for a second senior major.
In slightly warmer weather on The Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort, the 55-year-old Davies played bogey-free over the last 11 holes and was at 6-under 138. Brandi Burton had a 66, the best score of the tournament, and was two shots behind.
Silvia Cavalleri (69) and Jane Crafter (71) were three shots behind at 141.
Juli Inkster, who was one shot behind Davies starting the second round, shot 80 to fall 11 shots behind.
"I had a couple of bogeys early on, but I didn't panic," Davies said. "I'm playing with a bit of confidence now and that's good to have going into the final round."
Davies already won the inaugural U.S. Senior Women's Open this summer at Chicago Golf Club.
