Hokom’s round was focused on consistency. It was not until hole nine before Hokom carded a par. In the first eight holes she landed two bogies and six birdies. On the back nine Hokom landed five birdies and three bogies. Hokom landed several of her birdies from the C1/C2 line carding 88% C1 putting and 75% C2 putting for the day. She has set herself up for a stellar finish during the final round tomorrow on ‘The Beast’.
Paige Pierce pushed hard today but struggled with the putter on quite a few of the holes but ultimately could not catch Sarah as she went birdie for birdie down the stretch. On the second to last hole of the round Paige took an uncharacteristic double OB six. On the drive Paige drove straight long into 18’s fairway. On her upshot she landed short left bouncing OB again. This was a missed opportunity for Paige to potentially gain two more throws on Sarah going into the final day.
Catrina and Lisa did everything they could to stay on the lead card for the final day. Cat would have been -1 on the day if she had not carded a triple bogey six on hole one. Four putting inside the circle was a rough way to start the day but ultimately she recovered nicely landing birdies on the front nine and carding only three bogies on the back nine.
