Walmart NW Arkansas Championship R2

Anna Nordqvist takes lead

August 28-30
Pinnacle Country Club, Rogers, Arkansas
$2,300,000
Round 1, Round 3




Anna Nordqvist shot a 9-under 62 to take a three-stroke lead over Sei Young Kim at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship.


She was tied for the lead overnight after a first round 64 and hit all greens in regulation in her second straight bogey-free round.

“I played really solid both today and yesterday. Got off to a great start. Had a lot of good opportunities. Made a few putts early and just kept going. Felt like I hit my irons really well.”



“There is something about Arkansas.” she said. “Always liked this place. Probably one of the few places in the U.S. I could really see myself being because I like the atmosphere here.”

A two-time major winner and with six other LPGA Tour victories, Nordqvist last won in 2017.


“There is obviously low scores out here, so you got to keep going,” Nordqvist said. “It’s just so competitive out here. In order to win out here you really have to be on top of your game. So feel good so far, but I’m going to have to post a low one tomorrow, too.”

Kim followed up her opening round 65 with a 64 including an eagle at the 18th. She was making the turn when the thunderstorm hit.

“Greens were softer, but the wind is stronger than front nine, so it wasn’t easy.”

Stacy Lewis, 2014 winner and University of Arkansas alumna, fired a 68 to get to 8-under par.
