Nelly Korda’s lead cut to one shot at LET tournament in France

Korda entered the day with a six-shot lead but made three bogeys and just one birdie on the back nine to finish with a 1-under-par 70. The American is 11 under through 54 holes. She said after the round she didn’t play well after the rain delay and missed more greens than she usually does.

Klatten is one back after shooting 65, the day’s low round. France’s Celine Boutier shot 67 and is 7 under entering Sunday’s final round at Golf du Medoc near Bordeaux.

Klatten played at Georgia State and was the first women’s golfer from the school to compete at the NCAA championships in 2006. She seeks her first win on the LET.

N. Korda leads Klatten, Boutier at Ladies French Open

American Nelly Korda will have to hold off a pair of French women on their own turf to win her first LET title.

Korda’s six-shot lead shrunk to a single stroke Saturday at the Lacoste Ladies French Open outside Bordeaux.

Korda is the highest ranked player in the field at No. 10 in the Rolex world rankings. Klatten is No. 956 and Boutier is No. 56.

‘I am so happy to be playing with Nelly tomorrow,’ Klatten said. ‘It can only make you better to play with someone like that. She has been so consistent, so it’s a great thing. And, hopefully, playing with Celine as well. It’s nice to have a little French connection in there. I am excited about it!’

Pettersen wins Solheim Cup for Europe in stunning finale

GLENEAGLES, Scotland (AP) ‘ Suzann Pettersen stood over the final shot of her golfing career, not quite realizing it also was the last shot of the most dramatic Solheim Cup ever played.

Europe’s players had their hands over their mouths, and their captain could barely watch. Blissfully unaware of what was unfolding was 1-year-old Herman, Pettersen’s first child who was also among the thousands around the 18th green at Gleneagles.

After being mobbed by her teammates on the 18th green, an emotional Pettersen held Herman in her arms and kissed him. The Europeans had regained the Solheim Cup and one of the stalwarts of women’s golf had her perfect ending.
