Indy Women in Tech: It’s golf v the weather, again!

"I have been so confident the whole year", Salas said. American Lizette Salas maintained her overnight lead with a bogey-free 64.

Sakura Yokomine and Harukyo Nomura missed the cut.

When the 29-year-old California player returned to the course, she quickly rolled in the birdie putt, finished her round with another birdie at No. 18 and took a two-shot lead over Angel Yin and Nasa Hataoka with a course record-tying 10-under 62. The win is the fifth career LPGA title for Park, who defends her title this week at the Canadian Pacific Women's Open. Paired with her outstanding first round 62, Salas is sitting pretty at the top of the leaderboard going into the weekend.

"I have been striking the ball really well, and I just had to stay patient", Salas said.

Park's putt, meanwhile, dropped cleanly in the middle of the cup.

South Korean Amy Yang was a stroke behind the leaders after a second-round 64 put her at 12-under heading into the third round on Saturday afternoon.

The changing weather conditions weather may not help, either.

After finishing, Park was whisked away to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's finish line, where she celebrated by kissing the bricks and taking the traditional sip of milk - though she declined to take the milk bath as the event's inaugural victor, Lexi Thompson, did a year ago. If the forecast for mostly sunny conditions Sunday holds, the soft greens that have kept scores at near record-lows through the first three rounds could suddenly become quicker and less forgiving. The Thai star was tied for 10th, four shots off the lead through two rounds. "So I'm just going to go out and play as if I'm behind". "I have a different mentality, I'm a different player".

Paul Dalistan had the chance to win the game for the Philippines, but missed his three-point attempt in the ensuing possession. Zhou finished the game with a double-double, including 25 points, 12 rebounds and five blocks.

"The best round of the year", the South Korean player said through an interpreter.

Salas' toughest challenge still could from Park, who spent most of Saturday flirting with a 54-hole scoring record.

As I anticipated, the cut line has crept up to three-under par and there are enough players still needing to finish their rounds that it could edge up to four-under before it's said and done.

She birdied three straight holes on the front side to get to 5-under, added birdies at Nos.

The miscue at No. 16 changed everything.

Salas appeared to be in control until hitting tee shots into the rough on the final two holes.

"I was a little tired with right-to-left wind", Park said.

She carded a final-round 70 while Park, who also had a chance to seal the win at the last hole in regulation, posted a 68.
