Shibuno maintained the top of the US Women’s Open’s chart

Hit on the standard three-stroke field in the penultimate round of 12/12.

But Japanese famous sportman golfer Hinako Shibuno still leads with a score of -4 in the major going on in Houston. Shibuno, after 36 holes, dominated the top of the board at -7 with a three-stroke lead. On the first two days of the tournament, she was only three bogeys. But in the third round yesterday, golfer born in 1998 hit 74 strokes on Cypress Creek, par71 with a birdie and up to four bogeys. The heavy rain in the late afternoon made the next day the soft, muddy surface easy to cling to the ball. Golfers, therefore, have a hard time controlling their strike power and dropping point.

I neglected to enter the game and was insecure throughout the round. Not being able to do my best and finding every hole is difficult,” Shibuno said of his personal performance through an interpreter. Shibuno bogey in hole 1 and hole 18, and all four excesses occurred in hole par4.

After 33 years, the US Women’s Open’s Open saw a Japanese golfer holding the top of the 54-hole chart for the first time. Before Shibuno was Ayoko Okamoto with a similar advantage in 1987. But at the finish line that year, Okamoto was eliminated in the title-delimitation match against Laura Davies and JoAnne Carner.

Shibuno won the major Women’s Open’s 2019 at the age of 21 when he first won an award overseas.

Thanks to this victory, she got a special place in the main round of the US Women’s Open 2020. After major England, Shibuno did not receive the LPGA Tour membership card. Because she thought she was too young, not experienced enough and needed more practice in the women’s arena.

To be able to hold the second major, Shibuno had more than 13 players. Olson kept the top of the table after 18 holes thanks to 67 strokes, including a hole-in-one on the opening day on December 10. There is also the achievement ceiling during the three rounds. Yesterday, Kim Ji Yeong2 reached this level with a non-bogey scoreboard. As a result, Kim jumped 44 steps to T3 (score -1), next to Moriya Jutanugarn.

The list of candidates contending for the title also has the world number one Ko Jin Young and the duo Lydia Ko, Ariya Jutanugarn.

Defending champion Lee6 Jeongeun is standing at T15 at +2. Because she was six strokes away from the top of the board, she had theoretically secured the title.

US Women’s Open is even more difficult in the end. The opening day recorded 23 players with negative scores. The next day, the number of “under par” won was 19 and currently there are four. Particularly for the penultimate round, only two out of 66 golfers got a negative score. At this stage, Chella Choi scored a hole-in-one in hole 12, 180 yards long with a hybrid number 4. This was the third ace in the tournament, the previous two in the opening round.

The probability of closing rain on the closing day is forecast at 80%. The rain begin from around 10am and thunderstorms and lightning all afternoon.
