Japan’s Nanako Inagaki holds a two-shot lead entering the final round of the ANNIKA Invitational at Mission Hills after adding a 4-under-par 68 to her opening round of 70 at Mission Hills Golf Club in Dongguan, China.
Not far behind Inagaki is Chinese Taipei’s Jie Ning Hong. She shot back to back rounds of 70 putting her right in the mix heading into the final round. Sitting in third place at 3-under-par is countrywoman Yi Ting Chou and closely behind her is the 2016 Champion, Ho Yu An at 2-under. The top three players are all from the 15-17 Year Old Division.
Tomorrow’s final round should be one for the books. An exemption into the 2019 ANNIKA Invitational USA presented by Rolex is up for grabs as well as R&A and CGA ranking points.
Final-round tee times will begin at 8 a.m. on Friday off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees on the Annika Course at Mission Hills Golf Club and will be followed by the Awards Ceremony on the 18th green.
