Marathon LPGA Classic R3

Ko takes charge as Ewart Shadoff stumbles

August 06-09
Highland Meadows Golf Club, Sylvania, Ohio
$1,700,000
Round 1, Round 2, Round 4



England’s Jodi Ewart Shadoff slipped down the leaderboard with a third round of two-over 73 as New Zealand’s Lydia Ko took control at the Marathon LPGA Classic in Ohio.


Ewart Shadoff was one shot off the pace heading into the weekend after an impressive 63 on Friday, but went 10 strokes worse in a frustrating third round for the 32-year-old, who carded one birdie to offset three bogeys.

At 10-under par for the tournament, Ewart Shadoff still enjoyed a relatively high position in a tie for third with Australia’s Minjee Lee.



But the pair were a daunting six strokes behind Ko, who turned a one-shot lead at the start of the day into a luxurious gap on the field by shooting a composed three-under 68.

Ko finished four strokes ahead of second-placed Danielle Kang of the US, who took a 70.

American Lindsey Weaver was a stroke behind Ewart Shadoff and Lee after a 67 took her to nine-under.
