LPGA Tour: Emily Kristine Pedersen joins Annika Sorenstam in historical past

Emily Kristine Pedersen is on fireplace. After setting the 36-hole event scoring report, Pedersen one-upped herself Saturday. She fired off an 8-under 62 at The ANNIKA pushed by Gainbridge at Pelican, tying the mark for lowest 54-hole rating in LPGA Tour historical past at 192.

Sarcastically, it was Annika Sorenstam who initially set the report again in 2003. Since then, Nasa Hataoka (2018), Sei Younger Kim (2018) and Danielle Kang (2021) matched the feat.

Following her record-setting spherical, Pedersen downplayed the significance of what she’s finished this week. As an alternative, she pointed to how the remainder of the sphere can also be performing.

Her 62 Saturday was not even the low spherical of the day. That belonged to Amy Yang (61), who’s sitting T2, three photographs again at 15-under, alongside Lilia Vu.

“If anybody within the prime has received a 61 it’s going to be a tricky day. I do know that everybody on the market has that in them, so I simply should try to make as many birdies as I can,” Pedersen mentioned waiting for Sunday.

Pedersen began sizzling, birdieing two of her first three holes. But it surely was her quick sport and talent to keep away from errors that saved her momentum alive.

“My quick sport was higher immediately. It’s not been nice the final couple days, however immediately was good. That’s sort of what saved the bogeys off the cardboard and saved the momentum going,” mentioned Pedersen.

She is trying to develop into the primary girl from Denmark to win on the LPGA Tour. With a victory, Pedersen is projected to climb inside the highest 35 of the Race to the CME Globe factors checklist and qualify for subsequent week’s CME Group Tour Championship.
