If Ariya Jutanugarn could close out her match at the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic today, she will make her country Thailand so proud. She will also make her critics whine like a baby and she will gain back fans that followed her at the ANA Inspiration that were rooting for her to win. Ariya deserves to win today but only if she could stay loose and free.
Amy Yang is creeping up the leaderboard after birdie’ing 4 holes. She started the day at -8 and now she is at -12, just a few strokes short of Ariya. Amy is a fighter and has the right combination of skill and attitude to take a tournament. Ariya has to be careful with her carefree nature and not let her casualness take over her emotions. She has to put a little care in her game, instead of taking it for granted like she did at the ANA where she lost the match in the last 3 holes.
