Aditi Ashok slips on third day at Women's PGA, lies T-27
It was a tough day out there for young Aditi Ashok as she dropped four bogeys on the back nine and six in all in a round of two-over 73 and slipped from the overnight T-12 to T-27 in the third round of the KPMG Women's PGA Championship.
The 19-year-old Aditi, who is playing only her second Major – she made the cut in the first at ANA Inspiration – was never able to settle down in the third round, after two successive 69s in the first two rounds.
She did have four birdies, one on the front nine and three on the back nine, but two bogeys on front nine and another four on the return journey wrecked her card.
At two-under 211 for 54 holes, she is T-27 but eight shots behind co-leaders, Korea's Chella Choi (67) and American Danielle Kang (68) at 10-under each.
Another Korean Jiyai Shin (64) was third at eight-under and Canadian defending champion Brooke Henderson (69) was fourth.
