Hyo Joo most recent impressive round of majors golf was not equivalent to her very first record of 61 five years ago when she took the title in her elite debut. Sung Hyun Park, a top ranked player, closed the gap in second by making a birdie on the par-5 18th for a 5-under 66 on the hillside course overlooking Lake Geneva. Inbee Park said,

“I really think this golf course suits Korean players because all the golf courses in Korea are built in the mountain, we are really used to the undulations and the lies that we get.”

The game began early when the weather was cool and ended at 2:15 p.m. According to weather forecast, the Sunday’s game will be affected by persistent rain and a temperature drop of about 16 Celsius (30 degrees F). Evian has not escaped some fall-like weather despite switching back to July. Sung Hyun Park said through a translator, “I think I’m familiar with the course conditions when it has rained.” Lee’s 3-foot par putt roll around the lip and came back toward her as Four South Koreans were tied for the lead at 10 under after the leading group played the 8th.

Kim made a birdie to close within one shot and then picked up shots at Nos. 13 and 14. Park drew level with a birdie at the par-5 15th, then fell back when only Kim made a four-footer for birdie that both had at the par-3 16th. Four players are at 8 under included former top-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn, whose 64 tied the lowest round of the week. Jennifer Kupcho, made eagle-3 at the 7th reaching the turn in 32 strokes, but needed a birdie on No. 18 to card 69.
