Welcome to the picturesque Fife on the Scottish east coast. In amongst

:00:27.:00:35.

the tranquillity of the best women golfers on the planet are battling

:00:36.:00:37.

against themselves and the elements in a bid to lift the season, the

:00:38.:00:45.

Ricoh women's British Open. In these conditions it really is a

:00:46.:00:50.

spectacular setting but the wind is beginning to whip up and as

:00:51.:00:54.

Kingsbarns has already shown us this week, it can change very quickly.

:00:55.:00:58.

Those out early will be looking to put the pressure on. It is an

:00:59.:01:02.

international trio leading the way on day three. From South Korea,

:01:03.:01:09.

In-Kyung Kim. The 29-year-old has already won twice on the LPGA this

:01:10.:01:20.

year. From the USA, world number to, Lexi Thomson, a major winner in

:01:21.:01:30.

2014. Flying the home flag, 21-year-old Georgia Hall. She

:01:31.:01:35.

currently sits top of the ladies European Tour Order of Merit. So,

:01:36.:01:48.

In-Kyung Kim leads after her 68, two ahead of Lexi Thompson and Georgia

:01:49.:02:00.

Hall. Ally McDonald is on 8-under and Jodi Ewart-Shadoff another shot

:02:01.:02:08.

back. Charley Hull and Mel Reid are still in the mix on 5-under par. So,

:02:09.:02:12.

to the leaders. On the tee, from England, Georgia

:02:13.:02:22.

Hall. A big 48 hours coming up for this

:02:23.:02:42.

young player. Many eyes on her. She has got away to a good start,

:02:43.:02:49.

excellent. On the TV from career, In-Kyung Kim. -- BT from

:02:50.:03:07.

Korea. Well, on she goes our Championship leader. That will end

:03:08.:03:18.

up very nicely indeed. The leaders are off. Let's take a

:03:19.:03:33.

look back at some of the early starters. 2013 Champion Stacy Lewis

:03:34.:03:38.

began the day two under-par. This bought a birdie to finish on 18. --

:03:39.:03:47.

for a birdie. Very nicely done and what around it was! Nine birdies on

:03:48.:03:56.

the way to a 6-under par for Championship. Her partner was also

:03:57.:04:03.

going along very well. This, her second shot went to the park four

:04:04.:04:09.

ninth. Right at the flag and that would be a tap in for birdie to move

:04:10.:04:16.

into 7-under. To the 17th now and a birdie putt. That would be an eight

:04:17.:04:25.

to take her to just one back from the lead. To the final hole and

:04:26.:04:30.

another birdie putt but this one was to set a New Course record. So close

:04:31.:04:37.

but she would tap that into equalled the 64 set by Michelle Wie on

:04:38.:04:41.

Thursday but more importantly was in the clubhouse from 10-under par.

:04:42.:04:47.

Very happy with today. I barely made the cut yesterday. I tried to play

:04:48.:04:53.

some good golf this morning. The perfect condition for scoring. The

:04:54.:04:57.

greens were a little bit quicker, so it was better to have faster greens.

:04:58.:05:02.

The greens were really slow the past couple of days and I really

:05:03.:05:09.

struggled with the putt. Jaye Marie green and Caroline Matheson making

:05:10.:05:15.

good of the early conditions. The good start for Jodi Ewart-Shadoff.

:05:16.:05:34.

Two time winner goes in on four under-par. Let's go out on the

:05:35.:05:42.

course with the commentators. First, Maureen. A fine T-shirt at this

:05:43.:05:52.

opening hole. It has given Georgia Hall a good opportunity of birdie.

:05:53.:05:59.

Up the hill a little on the left. That was a confidently stroked putt.

:06:00.:06:03.

The young Englishwoman can not have hoped for a better start. Second

:06:04.:06:16.

hole, McDonald. Par-5, second shot. Bunkers on the right of the green,

:06:17.:06:21.

right in front of the television tower. Trying to shoot it on. It is

:06:22.:06:30.

doing very well indeed. Look at this! What a little beauty!

:06:31.:06:41.

Choi at the 3rd. A bogey putt. She is getting closer but still work to

:06:42.:06:58.

do. McDonald at the 2nd after that cracking second shot. This is for a

:06:59.:07:05.

three. Just ran out of gas. That is a nice birdie after the drop shot at

:07:06.:07:14.

the 1st, even Stephen after two. Came just far enough back. But bit

:07:15.:07:26.

of spin on this one. Very nicely done. Not the longest of it is but

:07:27.:07:35.

an exquisite short iron player. -- hitters. Third green and Lexi

:07:36.:07:44.

Thompson. I am not sure what happened there. Don't know whether

:07:45.:07:53.

holders. -- where the hole is. A mile short. Must be seven feet

:07:54.:07:59.

short. Leader by one and a birdie chance here at the 2nd. A nice role

:08:00.:08:06.

on it. A very nice role on it. Just seemed to hug the surface. She moves

:08:07.:08:20.

to 12-under. Fresh off a birdie, Kim has moved to 12-under par. Georgia

:08:21.:08:29.

Hall birdied the first. Stacy Lewis, what around for her! She was round

:08:30.:08:36.

in 65. This was at the 15th. At this stage when she was 5-under. Note

:08:37.:08:43.

that in and took home 26-under. Former champion in 2013. -- nudged

:08:44.:08:50.

that in. A bit of a breeze and no rain. At the 16th she played this

:08:51.:08:58.

beauty. Second shot. Sweet as that. Write down the flag and left her the

:08:59.:09:07.

simplest of birdie putts. A old 62. At the 17th, she found the green.

:09:08.:09:17.

Another one into the bottom of the Cup. At this stage, she is flying up

:09:18.:09:25.

the leaderboard. At the 18th, a beautiful approach. A little down

:09:26.:09:33.

the slope. A powerful strike. Nine birdies on the card. Very

:09:34.:09:39.

impressive. She is currently lying in fourth position. Amy caught up

:09:40.:09:44.

with her. With the conditions we have hand, knowing you had a few

:09:45.:09:50.

shots to make up, you must have been delighted to see the sun shining in

:09:51.:09:55.

benign conditions. At the British Open you need to make some birdies.

:09:56.:10:00.

We were making birdies. Conditions were hard and I was still making

:10:01.:10:06.

birdies. A great way to finish the day. Going back and forth and making

:10:07.:10:21.

putts was cool. Jaye Marie green. That one sliding across the face of

:10:22.:10:28.

the hole. What around she has had today! She is just taking a lot of

:10:29.:10:36.

care here. She taps that in for a 67. Out in 31. A couple of ugly

:10:37.:10:44.

blobs in the middle of the back nine but it adds up to a fine effort. Not

:10:45.:10:49.

many players putt with a glove on but Lexi does. You can see the tilt

:10:50.:10:56.

of the Cup. It will move right to left. Christopher Columbus. Would

:10:57.:11:09.

have done better with a hockey stick and an orange, I think. Most

:11:10.:11:14.

unusual. A stroke thrown away therefore Lexi.

:11:15.:11:34.

Maria, the older sister of the defending champion, a wonderful

:11:35.:11:53.

player in her own right. She moves to 8-under. 23 years of age. I don't

:11:54.:11:59.

think she liked her sister stealing the limelight last year. Kim drove

:12:00.:12:07.

into trouble last year and found a huge bunker. Only ad farms it to

:12:08.:12:13.

here. This is a difficult shot. Without a background it is difficult

:12:14.:12:18.

for your depth perception. You have to trust your yardage. A little

:12:19.:12:29.

further past than it looks. She does not seem too happy. She looks a

:12:30.:12:39.

little ruffled. Jodi Ewart-Shadoff lying second. Short fly here. Very

:12:40.:12:49.

short. Beautifully judged. There have been a couple of to is here

:12:50.:12:58.

already today. Kewn with a birdie chance at the 9th. -- Kim. Bangs it

:12:59.:13:08.

in. This is a good-looking card. 20 of three 's. Georgia Hall came off a

:13:09.:13:14.

little short here on the third. A little untidy. Jodi Ewart-Shadoff

:13:15.:13:35.

with a birdie chance and she does. That was nicely done. Kim has played

:13:36.:13:46.

away rather untidily up the third. Still a chance of saving par with

:13:47.:13:53.

the good part down the hill. Will not be that fast with the rain

:13:54.:14:00.

tumbling out of the skies again. Look at the line rolling end over

:14:01.:14:01.

end. That is a fantastic four. Par putt for Georgia Hall. This has

:14:02.:14:23.

been the second hardest hole on the course. Bit of a tricky spot. I

:14:24.:14:43.

think she thought she had that one. Let's have a look at the leaderboard

:14:44.:14:49.

as it stands in round three. That lovely 25 footer at the 3rd. A great

:14:50.:14:57.

round. Early doors. As we go down the leaderboard, Mel Reid has made

:14:58.:15:01.

three birdies this morning, moving to 8-under. Lexi is struggling a

:15:02.:15:04.

little bit. That is one of the best we have seen

:15:05.:15:32.

today. Just tiptoed over the hollow. This is fantastic stuff. Just

:15:33.:15:39.

tiptoeing along and rolling the odd one in. 8-under par. A big group at

:15:40.:15:48.

eight and. Just a slightly longer to shot gives you a glimpse of the

:15:49.:15:56.

flag. Sounded sweet. Another crackerjack. Two wonderful shots.

:15:57.:16:04.

They are the leaders and we can see why now. The ball just spins away.

:16:05.:16:18.

That is what it should be. The ball first. You should have told me this

:16:19.:16:30.

a long time ago. At this stage she was 5-under par. Not many birdies

:16:31.:16:43.

here today at this awkward pin. A chance for Georgia Hall. I like the

:16:44.:16:54.

pink fingernails. Maybe they are for good luck. Did you try it? I'd just

:16:55.:17:03.

do my toenails. Half an hour ago looked like we were going to get a

:17:04.:17:08.

soaking and now it looks rather pleasant. Good angle to putt from, I

:17:09.:17:13.

would say, from this side, wouldn't you? A little bit left to right. The

:17:14.:17:31.

more of the break you can take out. They did not like that. A very

:17:32.:17:41.

hesitant stroke. Not a good one. Georgia Hall for her part. This is

:17:42.:17:46.

crucial. Short at the last. A lovely approach. Very solid. Just feels a

:17:47.:18:00.

little bit of deep breathing going on. Something to settle and get the

:18:01.:18:13.

round going. At the 9th. The second. A bit of check on that. More than a

:18:14.:18:20.

bit of check. A superb shot. Beautifully struck. I think if

:18:21.:18:26.

Georgia gets hold of one, she can certainly chase it on. I think it

:18:27.:18:37.

would be a big relief right now. She really smacked that one, did not

:18:38.:18:46.

hold back. Past the bunker. And it is setting up for a nice eagle putt.

:18:47.:18:54.

A beautiful shot. That was a honey Bunch and a half. She will not know

:18:55.:19:02.

how beautiful it is. That is a beauty. Another one finds the bottom

:19:03.:19:08.

of the Cup. She is more than tiptoeing up the leaderboard, she is

:19:09.:19:14.

flying up it. Such the shoot out tomorrow with all these low scores.

:19:15.:19:23.

In-Kyung Kim does like a practice swing. Those grabby ones. She won't

:19:24.:19:41.

want it again. Delightfully played. What is the strike? Just nipped it.

:19:42.:19:55.

Sometimes you can over read a putt. This is for an eagle two. She has

:19:56.:20:06.

got it. Moves from 9-under 211 under after a gorgeous tee shot. An

:20:07.:20:17.

absolutely perfect putt. Kim, after a lovely chip on here has this for

:20:18.:20:24.

her birdie. Taps it in and leads by two. Kim, 13-under an Georgia Hall

:20:25.:20:31.

11-under. In the clubhouse at 11-under. In-Kyung Kim a long way

:20:32.:20:42.

short of this flag on the past three sevenths. Not a long way short. What

:20:43.:20:52.

a tramline. Third birdie of the day and a couple of drop shots. It all

:20:53.:21:01.

adds to 8-under. Caroline Masson choosing a very good week to hit

:21:02.:21:10.

some form. Very solid play from the German player. Championship leader

:21:11.:21:22.

Kim is frisky. She is like a young puppy. Jumping about. Looks almost

:21:23.:21:31.

childlike. Wonderful to see. Look at that. Wax it up onto the green and

:21:32.:21:40.

looks astonished. Another spanking to shot by Georgia Hall. You know

:21:41.:21:49.

how impressive is this young Englishwoman. Played twice in this

:21:50.:21:59.

Championship as an amateur. Was an amateur with Lydia a few years ago.

:22:00.:22:11.

Caroline Masson. Come on, come on. Yes, yes. Surely, surely not. That

:22:12.:22:23.

will count the same as a big, booming 280-yard drive. That little

:22:24.:22:34.

one gives her a 67. Everything very still. Hardly a breath of wind. If

:22:35.:22:44.

she has hit it, if she has hit it. She did. Well done! Was worried it

:22:45.:22:52.

would stop a couple of inches short. That was a wonderful stuff. Captain

:22:53.:23:06.

Ahab caddying for her. Can Georgia Hall match In-Kyung Kim's birdie? It

:23:07.:23:10.

is still a three shot lead. There is a little happy chap. Danny

:23:11.:23:30.

Massingham, one of our librarian boys. Here's wide had a baby

:23:31.:23:35.

yesterday. People kept saying that Danny had a baby yesterday. EP did,

:23:36.:23:42.

he would be worth millions. It was his wife. Our leader. Let's see

:23:43.:23:47.

where this ends up. It is quite acceptable. It is not the worst shot

:23:48.:23:56.

in the world. And yet, I don't know, the exuberance of youth. The exceeds

:23:57.:24:01.

rents of youth. That's the way it goes. Always carry two umbrella. A

:24:02.:24:11.

packet of some jeers and a thermos flask, thermals. All day long

:24:12.:24:17.

chattering away and smiling. Where are we? Oh, Joy! Georgia Hall, the

:24:18.:24:26.

21-year-old from Dorset. They are all cheering her on from that

:24:27.:24:36.

county. Turned pro in 2014. So, only starting on this great adventure

:24:37.:24:42.

that is professional golf. That is a great shot. Very, very impressive. A

:24:43.:24:54.

lucky escape here for McDonald on the par-5 3rd shot. Quite an unsure

:24:55.:25:08.

late in green up. A miracle. The miracle has happened. Just when you

:25:09.:25:15.

are hoping to get close, you pop one in and put down three and move on.

:25:16.:25:25.

Came for her third consecutive birdie. Look at that one Tanni

:25:26.:25:40.

across the green. In she goes. This is a to Mendis start from In-Kyung

:25:41.:25:47.

Kim. There is clear water now between her and the rest of the

:25:48.:25:59.

field. Now, much closer and Georgia Hall trying to match that birdie.

:26:00.:26:04.

Does not want to drop too far behind. Can she do it? Yes, she can.

:26:05.:26:13.

This is a great match developing between these two. A ding-dong

:26:14.:26:20.

battle. Look at that! Three twos. Good Lord! Well, In-Kyung Kim

:26:21.:26:29.

forging a highway ahead but Reid has tiptoed up to 9-under. A fascinating

:26:30.:26:40.

battle is ensuing. The rear with the shortest hole on the golf course and

:26:41.:26:49.

only a wedge. That should come in from there. That is a very sharp

:26:50.:26:57.

play. Surely not. Anything hit over the left-hand bunker sweeps back in.

:26:58.:27:06.

Look at that! The university, Old Course hotel. It can tell a story or

:27:07.:27:14.

two. As we drift along the coastline, it is about 12 and a half

:27:15.:27:24.

kilometres from Kingsbarns. There was a view of what Georgia was

:27:25.:27:31.

facing. He has to act this right into the heart of the green and let

:27:32.:27:34.

the slopes feed it down to the flag. Come on. Are you come. That is a

:27:35.:28:07.

fine effort. Almost holding one here at the 12th. Just attending to

:28:08.:28:08.

business now. That moves 10-under. Five behind In-Kyung Kim. Georgia

:28:09.:28:27.

Hall has already had one eagle so far today. Doesn't half move the

:28:28.:28:38.

score along. This is going to be slow. She has a little rise to come

:28:39.:28:51.

up. I'll she comes. A little bit strong. Lost the line a bit. It

:28:52.:28:56.

happens sometimes when the greens are slow and there are moisture --

:28:57.:29:03.

there is moisture on them. A par saving attempt at 14. I thought it

:29:04.:29:10.

had to come from there as well. It just held its line. That is her

:29:11.:29:22.

first dropped shot of the day. 32 with four birdies. No birdie so far

:29:23.:29:30.

coming on the back nine. A bit of swing on this baby. Turning hard

:29:31.:29:36.

from left to right. She has hold some beauty so far. This for a

:29:37.:29:40.

birdie at number eight but an unlikely one. It was a very good

:29:41.:29:54.

effort, wasn't it? Tiptoed along the edge of that rich. Beautifully

:29:55.:30:00.

judged. Checking the football scores and Luton 5-1 up. Pretty impressive.

:30:01.:30:08.

Everything down the left side. Can she hit it? Oh, no! Right in the

:30:09.:30:23.

jaws, jeepers creepers. Just a par. Look at that, three two As on the

:30:24.:30:30.

card so, 12-under, a very good opening nine holes.

:30:31.:30:42.

After an adventurous second shot eventually makes a par at the 8th.

:30:43.:30:49.

Certainly a birdie opportunity missed for both the last two in the

:30:50.:30:57.

final pairing. That's just about all that Georgia Hall can see for her

:30:58.:31:03.

second shot on the ninth. Got to fly it right up onto the back ledge. Sit

:31:04.:31:10.

down there. Just caught a little bit of a flyer

:31:11.:31:30.

there. It is finished in an awful sport. It's when you trap a bit of

:31:31.:31:34.

grass between the club and the ball and it just eliminates some of the

:31:35.:31:38.

backspin. Oh, my lord. Fingers crossed it was made by a rabbit. Now

:31:39.:31:49.

it is an eagle putt but Jodi Ewart Shadoff but realistically down in

:31:50.:31:54.

two for her good birdie, it has to hurry. Two good shots to get it to

:31:55.:31:58.

the front edge of the green on this long par five. Well, this is how the

:31:59.:32:06.

US team is shake the -- shaping up. There are ten there, names that are

:32:07.:32:11.

probably going to make the team. Two captains picks, which is down to the

:32:12.:32:15.

captain. Will come to Scotland, to the

:32:16.:32:19.

women's British Open. A huge week on the

:32:20.:32:19.

Will come to Scotland, to the women's British Open. A huge week on

:32:20.:32:21.

the golfing calendar but for you, looking ahead to the Solheim Cup,

:32:22.:32:25.

how big a week is this for you? It's a big week and a big week for the

:32:26.:32:29.

players, a bigger week for the players. A lot of vying for the two

:32:30.:32:36.

spots. I'm waiting to see how players lay out, the Rolex rankings,

:32:37.:32:39.

a lot of things can switch come Sunday. I'll wait until that happens

:32:40.:32:42.

and get my two pics and we'll be on to Des Moines. Two pics, how many

:32:43.:32:48.

players are you looking at? Well, probably six or seven players but

:32:49.:32:52.

I'm really looking at and that really have a good chance. It's not

:32:53.:32:56.

like I'm ranking them, really, I could slot anybody in and they'd do

:32:57.:33:01.

well for me, so I've just got to think what's best for the team and

:33:02.:33:04.

what's best for the camaraderie and go from there. We all look forward

:33:05.:33:10.

to the Solheim Cup, it's one of the best events on the ladies' Tour.

:33:11.:33:14.

Georgia Hall to get a free drop from that ugly spot they've all been in

:33:15.:33:21.

and dropped it here. They must have been practising. Still tricky, don't

:33:22.:33:24.

be greedy. Make sure you get it on the green.

:33:25.:33:29.

Look at that, a bit of turbulence if your aeroplane was going through

:33:30.:33:51.

there, I'm sure. Lexi Thompson has had a very disappointing outward

:33:52.:33:55.

nine, of 38. She's got to start making some inroads. I think she was

:33:56.:34:02.

listening. That's more like it, Lexi.

:34:03.:34:07.

Georgia Hall has got this little one to drop, just one shot. At the 9th.

:34:08.:34:19.

I.K. Kim made par. So George, four behind. -- Georgia Hall, four

:34:20.:34:27.

behind. Lexi Thompson here on 11, having an iron in for her second

:34:28.:34:34.

shot. It's a long hitter that didn't look or sound very good. I guess it

:34:35.:34:41.

did, I apologise! It looked very odd, but she's on the green.

:34:42.:34:50.

Here's Jutanugarn, third shot in 15 par-5. She's going to want to knock

:34:51.:34:59.

it close and she does. It's very important to keep up with the field.

:35:00.:35:03.

There's a lot of birdies being made out there. Lexi Thompson here on 11,

:35:04.:35:15.

with a long eagle putt. She's got a little bit to work with, but not too

:35:16.:35:19.

much. Just needs to get it there, but that's been her problem. To find

:35:20.:35:28.

the pace. Here's Jutanugarn, her birdie on 15. To go into double

:35:29.:35:34.

digits. Much better stroke. Much firmer.

:35:35.:35:40.

Right at the bottom of the cut, she's happy. Well, the sea is calm,

:35:41.:35:51.

but the clouds over Carnoustie Way look very ominous. Lexi Thompson

:35:52.:35:56.

after that misjudged first putt gets away with it, saved the day. My

:35:57.:36:02.

word, it's hard work though. She's still in the mix, not 1 million

:36:03.:36:10.

miles away. 9-under par. Both Kim and Hall parred the tenth, this is

:36:11.:36:22.

the par-5 11th. Kim, driving. Pretty generous fairways, but you don't

:36:23.:36:25.

want to go left. That's all right, that's a good shot. Skipping away.

:36:26.:36:30.

Very attractive corner of the course, the stand of trees behind

:36:31.:36:34.

the tee which separates the hole is, a very pretty corner. Jutanugarn,

:36:35.:36:42.

second shot to the 16th. She's 10-under now. Defending champion her

:36:43.:36:49.

sister fails to qualify. She's making up for it. Look out, a

:36:50.:36:54.

stunning shot. Keep it in the family. McDonald at the 12th.

:36:55.:37:07.

It's a good shot. For birdie on 16, Jutanugarn, to go 11-under, to go

:37:08.:37:21.

tight for second place at this moment and she does. -- tied for

:37:22.:37:27.

second place. She's been overshadowed by her sister but she's

a very fine player. Now Bellerive at the back of the green, but it down

:37:35.:37:39.

to here, this for a palm four at the back of the hole -- Bill Reid. A sad

:37:40.:37:44.

way to finish after so many good things have happened during the

:37:45.:37:48.

course of the round. She disappears off the leaderboard. Still, a 69,

:37:49.:37:56.

could easily have been a 66. Check on the leaderboard. Kim still leads

:37:57.:38:03.

by four. Two at 11-under. You can see there's quite a crowd down to

:38:04.:38:08.

what, 9-under, who have a realistic chance. There's Mel Reid, 8-under

:38:09.:38:15.

for the Championship. You knew you had a few shots to make

:38:16.:38:20.

up, you had to go aggressive. Are you pleased with that aspect of how

:38:21.:38:26.

you approached today? Yes, it was a lot tougher for us, the wind was a

:38:27.:38:30.

bit, rain here and there and I didn't put a foot wrong. I didn't

:38:31.:38:34.

put a foot wrong, to be honest, I just felt I could have shot 65

:38:35.:38:37.

without doing much different. Something in assist -- 60s is always

:38:38.:38:40.

good on Saturday, Moving Day. COMMENTATOR:

:38:41.:38:54.

Nights approach from Kim, absolutely pin high down the breeze, never easy

McDonald for her birdie on the 12th. Should just be a little bit left to

front nine. This sort of distance has been Holding her fair share to

extend the lead. She's done it again, right into the

:39:33.:39:44.

heart of the cup. 5-under, five birdies, no drops, 16-under, leads

:39:45.:39:50.

by five. Here's Lexi, after she was also in the bunker, leaving herself

:39:51.:39:55.

a tough pitch. She would probably have to land it the upper tier, get

:39:56.:40:02.

over the bunker and everything, trying to just... Yes, she hit that

:40:03.:40:09.

a little too heavy and the ball is coming back.

:40:10.:40:15.

After a nice birdie, I.K. Kim here on 12th, just a little snooze wage,

:40:16.:40:26.

110 yards -- a smooth Which. Continuing her amazing steady play

:40:27.:40:33.

today. Par-5 15th, the cup in a little hollow which gathers the ball

:40:34.:40:37.

up and it's right in the plughole. What a beauty. I.K. Kim to go

:40:38.:40:48.

17-under. To go 6-under for the day. Playing pretty much flawless golf

:40:49.:40:54.

today, only birdies, five birdies on the card. Actually six birdies on

:40:55.:41:02.

the card. Going to 17-under and a lead of six shot at this point, so

:41:03.:41:08.

Georgia really needs to make something happen not to make the gap

:41:09.:41:15.

too long. Ally McDonald not trying to make the mess even bigger, wants

:41:16.:41:20.

to make this one for bogey. To drop one. She goes to 9-under. A little

:41:21.:41:27.

bit of everything on this court today. Mix and match. A little

:41:28.:41:33.

opening for Georgia Hall, she's got 102. Six up the ridge behind,

:41:34.:41:38.

lovely, lovely shot. Georgia Hall leaving herself this

:41:39.:41:52.

for birdie after a Mendis third shot, here on 15, yes. She goes into

:41:53.:42:00.

double digits. Georgia Hall here for birdie, to go 12. Very much needed.

:42:01.:42:11.

Very nicely, Georgia moves into second place all by herself at

:42:12.:42:21.

12-under and their off to the 14th and it's a beautiful hole, a

:42:22.:42:25.

signature hole here and Ken was there earlier.

:42:26.:42:31.

The 14th here without any doubt as a signature hole, par-3 over the water

:42:42.:42:45.

here I always think of John Betjeman's poem, seaside Golf.

:42:46.:42:50.

Player cost of the edge of the water. Seaweed smells from Sandy

:42:51.:42:57.

caves and time and missed in whisk incoming tide, Atlanta's waves

:42:58.:43:01.

slapping the Sunni cliffs, lark song and the sounds in the air and

:43:02.:43:04.

splendour, splendour, everywhere. It is a delight. But perhaps this is

:43:05.:43:10.

the golfers' view. This is what it looks like from the green to the

:43:11.:43:14.

tee. There may be larks song in the air, I really, really couldn't care.

:43:15.:43:19.

Yelling a raucous cry of four, please, please, carried to the

:43:20.:43:23.

shore. Who cares about the seaside sounds all the lovely view? Just let

:43:24.:43:28.

me find my number two. It's that type of hole, you either love it or

:43:29.:43:35.

you hate it. COMMENTATOR:

:43:36.:43:35.

Georgia on the 14th. Good percentage shot, better than a

:43:36.:43:49.

percentage shot from Georgia Hall. How well she has played today. And

:43:50.:44:00.

nudges it in for the par 67. A very well controlled round, particularly

:44:01.:44:04.

early on. She hit some high quality I am shots. Maybe 66, tomorrow.

:44:05.:44:13.

Georgia Hall has already got one, two, three twos on her card. The

:44:14.:44:21.

rain is really increasing. To number four. Well, my goodness, she has got

:44:22.:44:27.

some fight in her. She creeps up just four shots behind now. Well,

:44:28.:44:37.

Jodi Ewart Shadoff and a bit of bother off the 16th tee. This is for

:44:38.:44:44.

par and it's dropped shot for her and she's going to move back, to

:44:45.:44:48.

9-under. Here's the leaderboard. I.K. Kim leads by four after that

:44:49.:44:52.

wonderful putt that Georgia Hall moved her to 13-under and Jutanugarn

:44:53.:44:58.

with a great round of 67, 11-under, in third spot. The 15th is a real

:44:59.:45:04.

three shot. Now, that's not very healthy. And I

:45:05.:45:19.

wonder if she's feeling the pressure exerted by Georgia Hall's last two

:45:20.:45:25.

birdies. Lead has been cut from six, 24-macro, in a matter of 15 minutes

:45:26.:45:30.

or so. Looking down to the 70s, the 17th green sits well the players. --

:45:31.:45:37.

17th, looking down. That's her third. Dropped a shot on 16, needs a

:45:38.:45:45.

good putt here to save her par. Georgia Hall with the ideal angle

:45:46.:45:47.

for her pitch. Doesn't like it. Well, it's OK though. She just

:45:48.:45:58.

pulled it a little bit. She was going to try to use the slope a

:45:59.:46:02.

little bit to ease the ball down to the hole but it's given her a

:46:03.:46:08.

chance. Now you would shut off needs this, she doesn't want to have

:46:09.:46:14.

back-to-back bogeys -- Jodi Ewart Shadoff needs this. That's going to

:46:15.:46:19.

draw her back to 8-under. So disappointingly, to do so much of

:46:20.:46:31.

your good work. I think Georgia Hall can sense a little chink in her

:46:32.:46:37.

partner's armour. Yes, you've got to feel this is a possum all pivotal

:46:38.:46:42.

point in the round. -- it's a possible pivotal point. She's

:46:43.:46:47.

birdied the last two. Check can she get one more? Hit it, oh, she's done

:46:48.:46:54.

it! Well, the glint of stealing her eye and how right you were, Ken. At

:46:55.:47:00.

the moment the gap is three and Kim has a very difficult putt left. For

:47:01.:47:09.

the first time today she's been put under a little bit of pressure. A

:47:10.:47:12.

little uphill, little movement to the right, must keep the pace on

:47:13.:47:16.

this. She's missed nothing so far today.

:47:17.:47:21.

Oh, very well done. That was a pressure putt.

:47:22.:47:35.

The caddy moves away. No... -- oh, that was very tiny indeed and very,

:47:36.:47:46.

very costly. Five has got to be the worst score

:47:47.:47:59.

that she makes from this tee shot that she leaked right here on 16.

:48:00.:48:02.

I'm getting nervous. Oh, well... It's making one mistake

:48:03.:48:17.

and following it with another. Never a good idea. Championship leader

:48:18.:48:27.

Kim, second shot to the 16th. Georgia Hall in the rough with the

:48:28.:48:30.

tee shot bunker with her second, great chance to increase her lead.

:48:31.:48:36.

And she's played a corker, absolute stunning shot.

:48:37.:48:48.

Jodie, desperately wanting a bogey after two birdies on the trot. She's

:48:49.:48:59.

left it in the jaws. Well, she'll tap that in for an inward nine of 37

:49:00.:49:08.

- today of 71. Promised so much better at one stage, a disappointing

:49:09.:49:14.

finish. Three groups left on the golf course. A sliding downhill lie

:49:15.:49:19.

here from McDonald's. It's a good shot. That will come

:49:20.:49:34.

back a little bit off the slope for her. It was a very brave shot

:49:35.:49:38.

indeed, it's getting better all the time. Georgia Hall -- Georgia Hall

:49:39.:49:43.

made a bad decision with her second shot, put it here. Not a bad

:49:44.:49:49.

contact. And a very fair result, she's got it on the green. Two putts

:49:50.:49:56.

for a five. She might lose two shots here. Cracking tee shot from Lexi

:49:57.:50:05.

Thompson here on 17. Perfect view of the pin. And another very fine I am

:50:06.:50:16.

shot, my goodness, that was unlucky. Nearly took a sharp left-hand turn

:50:17.:50:22.

into the hole. Good judgment needed here for Georgia Hall to get this

:50:23.:50:28.

close. This is her fourth shot, quite a swing up the slope, starts

:50:29.:50:33.

to turn, keep up. It's just going to stay too high, but that's a very

:50:34.:50:38.

good effort. It's gone a thought or two past. -- it's gone a foot or two

:50:39.:50:48.

past. McDonald, a lovely rescue club into here, down the hill,

:50:49.:50:53.

aggressive, solid, what a great three that is. That brings her back

:50:54.:51:00.

into double figures. 10-under. Our leader after that very good second

:51:01.:51:10.

shot, a putt for three. A good view from here.

:51:11.:51:16.

Nice strike. It's turning left, turning left, not quite enough

:51:17.:51:24.

steam, but that's a good solid safe four and at least one shot further

:51:25.:51:26.

ahead. Quite a short birdie putt here for

:51:27.:51:41.

Thompson, but she missed one on the last green that was about half this

:51:42.:51:45.

distance, but she makes no mistake. She picks one up.

:51:46.:51:56.

Well, I'm sure you've heard the expression grasping the nettle.

:51:57.:52:02.

Well, that's just what Kim is doing here. She's having a card at this.

:52:03.:52:08.

It's a long way to go. Danger everywhere, mostly in front. She

:52:09.:52:11.

finds the green, it will be a very brave shot. Oh, and she has. That's

:52:12.:52:19.

a fantastic shot. She was miles back. She must have been 80 yards

:52:20.:52:24.

behind Thompson's tee shot and she's put it eight or ten feet from the

:52:25.:52:29.

hole. A wonderful shot. Georgia Hall can probably just get a little sight

:52:30.:52:36.

of the flag here on 17. She will run round the corner and see where that

:52:37.:52:42.

finishes. Stay there. Just working its way onto the lower level. Such a

:52:43.:52:48.

dangerous hole but what are shot of I.K. Kim in her -- in there, with a

:52:49.:52:56.

5-wood. A big tee shot from Lexi Thompson, 18, only left herself a

:52:57.:53:01.

flick in. All sorts of moving parts in the American's swing.

:53:02.:53:14.

McDonald has acquitted herself extremely well today. Just look at

:53:15.:53:31.

where Georgia Hall is aiming this, way to the right. Over the ridge,

:53:32.:53:33.

desperate to get it close. Oh dear, oh dear, oh, it's doing

:53:34.:53:46.

better than I thought. Still seven feet away. Struggling, struggling as

:53:47.:53:54.

she comes to the end of her around. Not too much breaking this putt for

:53:55.:54:01.

Ally McDonald. Go on, hit it. A little shy.

:54:02.:54:11.

It's a closing par for a 70. Well played.

:54:12.:54:20.

Takes a long time to put the ball down, Georgia Hall, as if it's major

:54:21.:54:30.

surgery! Now Kim for a birdie three at the 17th. This to increase her

:54:31.:54:37.

lead. This is a delicate one. It's a way. Tricky one down the left, very

:54:38.:54:44.

fast, slid away. If she taps that in it will be a very good four. I was

:54:45.:54:49.

hoping for a bit of decent crab last night when I went out for dinner,

:54:50.:54:54.

but I had a pathetic little helping so I obviously didn't get it from

:54:55.:54:59.

these boys. Another very, very difficult putt, a crucial putt. For

:55:00.:55:03.

Georgia Hall. No were drilled it passed.

:55:04.:55:11.

Georgia Hall for a birdie five to drop back to 12-under the card. Oh,

:55:12.:55:19.

my goodness gracious me. I think she's further away. See how quickly

:55:20.:55:22.

things can change. The leader now for her par four at

:55:23.:55:36.

the 17th and she's done it and she's heading towards almost one has to

:55:37.:55:40.

think an invincible position in this year's Championship. Can't see any

:55:41.:55:48.

sunbathers out there. Both players have driven. Kim up to the middle of

:55:49.:55:56.

the fairway, Georgia Hall pushed its way out of the right but has found a

:55:57.:56:00.

good life. Can't see much of the green of anything. Maybe just the

:56:01.:56:04.

top of the flag, over the bank. Can she missed the bunkers and find the

:56:05.:56:08.

green? She can indeed. Well done, that was a good shot. After the

:56:09.:56:19.

disastrous last couple of holes. Came second to the final hole, what

:56:20.:56:23.

unimpressive performance it has been. She's only dropped two shots

:56:24.:56:29.

in this Championship. The last bogey she had was that the first hole

:56:30.:56:31.

yesterday. And that one finds the heart of the

:56:32.:56:45.

green again. Six birdies, no bogeys so far today. Next week we have live

:56:46.:56:53.

golf back on the BBC. The USPGA Championship from America, live!

:56:54.:57:31.

More good stuff to look forward to but now Kim, who has given is a

:57:32.:57:37.

wonderful exhibition of golf today. This might go in for three and if it

:57:38.:57:42.

does, good luck to you, my lovely. It's heading well.

:57:43.:57:49.

A rainbow, there have been a few of those around this week. Two for the

:57:50.:57:59.

price of one. Nantes -- now Georgia Hall needs to hold this birdie putt

:58:00.:58:03.

on the 18th if she wishes to be in the last group tomorrow. She's

:58:04.:58:07.

currently on under. Maria Jutanugarn is in at 11-under. This 469. --

:58:08.:58:24.

this, for eight 69. Almost. Such wonderful play, four twos on her

:58:25.:58:30.

card but the Finnish blighted with the bogey on 16 and the double on 17

:58:31.:58:35.

and at the moment she is six shots back.

:58:36.:58:42.

No Kim for a four at the last after a magnificent round of golf. This

:58:43.:58:52.

was 66. Well done, well done indeed. Marred slightly by that very, very

:58:53.:58:57.

slow play. So that's the end of day three. Kim leads by six shots after

:58:58.:59:04.

that wonderful round of 66. She and Georgia Hall played together. Took a

:59:05.:59:08.

long time but in many ways it was worth it. Let's hear what

:59:09.:59:09.

long time but in many ways it was worth it. Let's hear what they had

:59:10.:59:13.

to say. You have the lead. How do you

:59:14.:59:16.

prepare for tomorrow and how much are you looking forward to going out

:59:17.:59:21.

there and defending your lead? It's really privileged to play this golf

:59:22.:59:25.

course. I really enjoy when it's sunny. When it doesn't but still, I

:59:26.:59:31.

really enjoyed playing the golf course and its everyday so

:59:32.:59:34.

different, how they set the pin positions and how they use the tee

:59:35.:59:40.

box. I was really enjoying today. Hopefully, I don't really know

:59:41.:59:44.

what's going to happen, but I look forward to the challenge. Tomorrow,

:59:45.:59:48.

you've just got to have a good start. It's 18 holes now. Today, I

:59:49.:59:53.

took it more steady because it is two rounds but tomorrow I'm going to

:59:54.:59:56.

go for a bit more I think and she has a six shot lead which is quite a

:59:57.:00:02.

lot, but if I can get a lot of birdies I might be close. It's all

:00:03.:00:05.

set up for a big final day at Kingsbarns and we'll be back

:00:06.:00:17.

tomorrow, to round up all the best of day four of the Ricoh Women's

:00:18.:00:20.

British Open. BBC Two at 11:30am. It's South Korea's I.K. Kim out in

:00:21.:00:23.

front going into that final day, a six shot lead over her closest

:00:24.:00:26.

competitors. It's hers to lose, but golf is a funny old game. It isn't

:00:27.:00:29.

over until it's over. See you tomorrow.

:00:30.:00:49.

The second half, Jermaine, very much...

:00:50.:00:50.

..this season, the whole game in full

:00:51.:00:51.

It's been a knockout day in the Premier League.

:00:52.:00:55.

The second half, Jermaine, very much...

:00:56.:01:01.

Eilidh Barbour presents highlights of the third round at the Women's British Open at Kingsbarns in Scotland.

At this stage of 2016's championship, eventual winner Ariya Jutanugarn made a decisive move up the leader board, carding a third-round score of 66 to move two shots clear of the chasing pack. That lead proved insurmountable, and she went on to become Thailand's first major champion.
