Australian Kirk reaches -20 for 4-stroke lead at LPGA Classic

ONEIDA, Wis. (WBAY) – Katherine Kirk has distanced herself from the field a bit at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic.

In Saturday’s third round, the Australian shot a 7-under par 65 to reach -20, gaining a 4-stroke lead over Ashleigh Buhai.

“I mean I’ve been playing pretty well lately,” Kirk said. ”At least trending in the right direction, so I mean I like the golf course. It suits my eye. I think its going to take another low one tomorrow. There were some really good scores out there today. It’s not over until its over right? I can putt well but I think I’m pushing the limits right now. It’s fun I mean I made I think a 19-footer on 17 and a 19-footer there for par on 18. It’s unexpected, but you certainly take them where you can.”
