S. Korean Hur Mi-jung wins Ladies Scottish Open

Minjee Lee

Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn holds a slender one-shot lead going in to tomorrow's final round after a third round 67 (-4) saw her reach 16-under-par at the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open.

The Korean player carded a brilliant five-under-par 66 in miserable wet conditions for the final round in the $1.5million event and said Marshall, who comes from Gorebridge, had played a key part in her victory.

It was her third LPGA title triumph, the first having come 10 years ago before having to wait five years and then another five ye ars for the next two victories to come along.

Defending champion Ariya Jutanugarn showed exactly why she is one of the best players in the world, surging through the field on the back nine with three birdies in a four-hole stretch, to give herself a chance of lifting the title once again.

"It's really all positives from the week and I'd have taken this at the start if it was offered to me, although I can't help but be a little disappointed by two bogeys in the last three holes", said the 27-year-old, who did win the Douglas Lowe Memorial trophy for highest-finishing Scot in both men's and women's versions of the Scottish Open.

Mi Hyang Lee, the 2017 victor, was fourth at 12 under after a 68. "That was working really well today and it bring me a good result".

Asked when she felt she could go on and claim the win, she picked out the long 12th.

"Honestly I don't like links courses but after this week I love it!" "I just played with my confidence after that", she said.

Mi Jung, visible for probably miles away even through the rain in a bright lime green rainsuit, didn't even look at the scoreboards so was unaware she was tied with three others at the turn. "So that's why I've been starting playing a lot better than before".
