The best female golfers on the international scene have reached one round from the end of the KPMG Women's PGA Championship (prize money 10.4 million dollars). In fact, the third round of the American Major born in 1955 and organized in collaboration between the PGA of America and the LPGA Tour has concluded.

18 holes from the epilogue we find Amy Yang alone in the lead.

Pga, results

The South Korean leads the leaderboard with a score of -7 (209 shots) and boasts a two-point margin over her closest pursuers. In fact, in second place are the American Lauren Hertlage and the Japanese Miyu Yamashita with -5, followed one shot away by the American Sarah Schmelzel.

-3 and fifth position for a small group made up of the South Korean Jin Young Ko, the Japanese Hinako Shibuno, and the hosts Lilia Vu, Caroline Inglis and Lexi Thompson. On the par 72 course of the Sahalee Country Club in Sammamish (Washington, United States) everything is still possible with 17 golfers within 7 shots before the last and decisive round.

Closing the top ten in tenth position with a score of -2 are the American Ally Ewing and the Mexican Gaby Lopez, followed at -1 by the English Charley Hull and the Swedish Madelene Sagstrom. In the Italian evening there will be room for the last and decisive round which will decide the winner.

We remind you that Roberta Liti did not pass the Friday cut, abandoning her last hopes of Olympic qualification. She passed through Paris 2024 firmly in the hands of Alessandra Fanali. The Rules of Golf are a set of standard rules and procedures by which the sport of golf should be played.

They are jointly written and administered by the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, the governing body of golf throughout the world, outside of the United States and Mexico, which are the responsibility of the United States Golf Association.

An expert commission made up of members of the R&A and USGA oversees and refines the rules every four years. The latest revision is effective January 1, 2016. Changes to the rules of golf generally fall into two main categories: those that improve understanding and those that in certain cases reduce penalties to ensure balance.

The rule book, entitled "Rules of Golf", is published on a regular basis and also includes rules governing amateur status. In Italy it is up to Federgolf to supervise the competitions by enforcing the rules issued by the R & A, checking that these rules are observed by the Clubs, Associations and their members and managing the resulting sporting justice, protecting their interests abroad.
