SINGAPORE – Harukyo Nomura shot 1-under-par 71 but fell six strokes off the lead on Saturday after the third round of the HSBC Women’s Champions.
Starting the day three shots back in ninth, Nomura carded three birdies and two bogeys at the Sentosa Golf Club’s par-72 Serapong Course to sit in a four-way tie for 13th at 6-under 210.
South Korean Jang Ha-na shot a 68 and is one shot ahead of Thailand’s Pornanong Phatlum at the top of the leaderboard.
Although Nomura, in the hunt for her second LPGA Tour title, finished the day under par, she wasn’t happy with her performance on the greens.
“The putts really didn’t go in. I was frustrated a little bit too,” she said. “I’ll concentrate more to read the lines on the final day.”
Mika Miyazato moved up to 25th at 3-under after four-birdie, two-bogey round.
