Women’s world number one golf player Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand is the woman to beat going into the final round of the LPGA Tour’s HSBC Women’s World Championship in Singapore. Jutanugarn fired a third round 66 and has one stroke lead over Australia’s Minjee Lee.

Jutanugarn is a 10 time winner on the LPGA Tour and a two time winner on the Ladies European Tour, but the Thai is yet to win a title on Asian soil. After matching the round of the week on day three, some would argue that this is could finally be her chance.

The 23-year-old was calm and composed and during the third round.

Reading the greens better than she has all week, she found a better rhythm on her putting, rolling in six birdies. She picked up back to back strokes on the fourth and fifth holes and well as at the 13th and 14th to sign for a flawless 66.

With a total of 205, 11 under par, she has a one shot lead over Australia’s Lee, the number one ranked amateur golfer mixed seven birdies with two bogeys, to return a 67.

Also in contention is England’s Jodi Ewart Shadoff, who is a further stroke adrift on nine under overall after carding a 68.
