Japan’s Haru Nomura keeps leads in wind at LPGA in Texas
IRVING, Texas (AP) Haru Nomura of Japan shot a 1-over 72 on another windy day on the LPGA Tour in North Texas to extend her lead through three rounds despite a late double bogey.
Nomura was at 8-under 205 Saturday – two strokes ahead of Cristie Kerr, two-time Texas winner Inbee Park and 17-year-old amateur Eun Jeong Seong.
Stacy Lewis won at Texas in 2014 and had the day’s best round with a bogey-free 66. Tied for 44th place after 36 holes, Lewis moved up to fifth place.
There were winds of about 20 mph and a threatening storm that created difficult conditions for the second straight day.
Nomura led by only one stroke going into the third round. She stretched that to four before a double bogey at the par-3 17th hole.
