St Andrews. The Old Course. The home of golf. But the next door

:00:28.:00:37.

neighbour is a young pup. Kingsbarns links. The young and the old, side

:00:38.:00:42.

by side. Today, past champions with the

:00:43.:00:47.

experience of winning do battle with bright young thing, eager to make

:00:48.:00:53.

their mark and lift the trophy, and siblings I am to emulate past family

:00:54.:00:58.

victories but they will all need to chase down someone with experience

:00:59.:01:01.

and a great lead looking forher first major title. It is the Women's

:01:02.:01:07.

British Open. Final round. Welcome once again to the

:01:08.:01:10.

spectacular setting here at kings barn, come the end of the day a new

:01:11.:01:16.

chapter will be written in the history of the Women's British Open.

:01:17.:01:23.

The big question is, can anyone catch Kim. She has taken control

:01:24.:01:32.

three rounds in the 60 and she has a six shot lead over Moriya

:01:33.:01:38.

Jutanugarn. Inbee Park on ten under. Stacy Lewis nine under. It is Kim in

:01:39.:01:45.

pole position. On the tee from Korea In-Kyung Kim.

:01:46.:02:17.

So our leader has her final round under way. Has been so impressive.

:02:18.:02:24.

Just two drop shots in the Championship so far, is she has won

:02:25.:02:29.

twice on the LPGA Tour this season already but so far a major has

:02:30.:02:34.

eLieutenant lewded her. Second at the Prince operation and the women's

:02:35.:02:38.

open in the past. She finished third seven years ago in this

:02:39.:02:42.

Championship, could this be the day for In-Kyung Kim? It is certainly

:02:43.:02:45.

not won yet. There are burdens to be had as some

:02:46.:02:51.

the earlier starters are showing. Lizette Salas began the day on

:02:52.:02:56.

four-under par. This was a birdie putt on 18. It would stop just short

:02:57.:03:04.

but a simple tap in for par and a Boeing free round of 67. -- bogey.

:03:05.:03:14.

Nine under for the Championship. Michelle Wie was the overnight

:03:15.:03:19.

leader after round one. She began today ten shots behind Kim but she

:03:20.:03:23.

has been charging back up the leaderboard. That was for birdie off

:03:24.:03:28.

the fourth, her second of the day. So that moves Wie to within seven

:03:29.:03:34.

shots on ten under. Lizette Salas is the clubhouse leader after 67 and

:03:35.:03:36.

Jodi Ewart Shadoff has started brightly. A birdie at the second,

:03:37.:03:41.

she is one under through her first three holes. Among those in the

:03:42.:03:49.

clubhouse early on Sophie lamb. Let us get back to what is happening on

:03:50.:03:54.

the course, with your commentators Peter Alliss, Ken Brown, Helen after

:03:55.:04:01.

fell son and Maureen. Hanging lie at the second for Stacy Lewis, she will

:04:02.:04:04.

aim at the front left hand corner of the green. Trying to use the

:04:05.:04:06.

contours. What a wonderful shot from Stacy

:04:07.:04:32.

Lewis. I think she enjoyed that one. Michelle Wie why birdied. This is a

:04:33.:04:37.

chance on the firth. -- fifth. That is is a good stroke.

:04:38.:04:43.

In she goes and up to 10-under for Michelle Wie who opened with that

:04:44.:04:52.

fabulous 64 on the first day. In-Kyung Kim. A little one to open

:04:53.:04:58.

with a birdie, extend her lead. Five years ago she was that distance of

:04:59.:05:03.

putt away from her first major, she missed it, lost in the play off,

:05:04.:05:05.

needs to lay that ghost to rest. Ally McDonald, rolling in a nice

:05:06.:05:19.

birdie putt, that gets her to 11-under. Moving in the right

:05:20.:05:27.

direction. Stacy Lewis. Wonderful, wonderful

:05:28.:05:34.

second shot. And the simplest of eagles moves the

:05:35.:05:41.

American to 11-under par. Michelle is ball above feet, that

:05:42.:05:47.

sort of exaggerated posture. She smacks it away, looked a good clean

:05:48.:05:52.

hit. That was a corker, that is a beauty.

:05:53.:05:55.

I tell you, she has the flavour today.

:05:56.:06:04.

Stacy Lewis now with this awkward bunker shot.

:06:05.:06:12.

She played it well. Unfortunate not to get a bit more back spin on that.

:06:13.:06:27.

This for her fourth birdie. What an easy game it is. Happy days are here

:06:28.:06:38.

again. Lewis to save her par, no, drop

:06:39.:06:41.

shot, goes back to ten. Michelle Wie has been on fire today.

:06:42.:06:59.

Four birdies in her first six hole, she is under to 11-under.

:07:00.:07:06.

Very scenic little par-3 and a very attackable hole location today. Oh,

:07:07.:07:11.

go, go, it is going to be another tap in birdie for Michelle.

:07:12.:07:19.

Hyo Joo Kim holding another birdie putt. Shot 61 a couple of years.

:07:20.:07:29.

Still the lowest round in my major. She has taken a drop from a bush, so

:07:30.:07:36.

this is proving to be a costly hole. It is delightfully played shot. What

:07:37.:07:41.

a wonderful shot there and what a great recovery, a great tussle going

:07:42.:07:47.

on between Maguire and Sophie lamb who shot 69 earlier on.

:07:48.:07:55.

Inbee Park, for a bogey at the third. Good save, a shot gone.

:07:56.:08:18.

Lewis. Lovely shot. Friendly flag position on this punch bowl green.

:08:19.:08:24.

Check on the leaderboard. Kim still leads the way by six. Michelle Wie

:08:25.:08:29.

is on a great run as indeed is Lexi Thompson who has had a couple of

:08:30.:08:33.

birdies to go to 10-under with nine to play. Further down, well Park is

:08:34.:08:38.

4-under, the rest of them are all treading water and hoping for a

:08:39.:08:47.

decent prize. Very good approach shot into this

:08:48.:08:52.

difficult sixth hole for Jodi Ewart Shadoff and an even better putt.

:08:53.:08:58.

Putting in a strong bid to make the European Solheim Cup team, which

:08:59.:09:03.

will be announced later today. Stacy Lewis, birdie putt at the fourth.

:09:04.:09:13.

Well done. Moving steadily up the leaderboard. 11-under now.

:09:14.:09:19.

Par, eagle, bogey, birdie. A fine view of the course. It is

:09:20.:09:23.

interesting when you get an opportunity to look at farmland on

:09:24.:09:26.

the left, which runs into the golf course, which is very attractive,

:09:27.:09:32.

that is all it wases, very ordinary farmland of 20 odd years ago and

:09:33.:09:36.

they have created this very very pretty golf course. Very enjoyable

:09:37.:09:39.

course. Jodi Ewart Shadoff. For a birdie,

:09:40.:09:47.

she is 10-under. Par-3, that is, travelling a bit spady, but, that

:09:48.:09:51.

broke the speed limit I am sure when it went in. It disappeared. 11-under

:09:52.:09:58.

now. Caroline Masson has reached the

:09:59.:10:03.

seventh. Nine on, nine from the left, it is

:10:04.:10:09.

down in a little basin. It is is a very very friendly flag position.

:10:10.:10:14.

Come on, we might see a hole-in-one yet here today.

:10:15.:10:25.

Kim on the par-5 eighth. Great putt, remained rock steady

:10:26.:10:33.

over that one. That is her fourth birdie today.

:10:34.:10:40.

Tiptoeing up that board. Masson for birdie at the seventh.

:10:41.:10:42.

Good tee shot. Well done. Wie, to the ninth, second shot.

:10:43.:11:03.

Had a chance at the last to go 13-under. Couldn't take it.

:11:04.:11:08.

Over the gorse, over the hillocks. And another cracking shot. Unlucky

:11:09.:11:13.

it didn't go forward another four or five feet.

:11:14.:11:19.

Two good shots from Jodi Ewart Shadoff gets her to the very fringe

:11:20.:11:27.

of the eighth. Up a couple of tyres, running helter-skelter. Steady,

:11:28.:11:39.

excellent effort. -- tiers. Wie, can she get another birdie to

:11:40.:11:44.

wind up a wonderful nine holes? She can. Well done, well done indeed.

:11:45.:11:51.

Out in 30, with a couple of missed opportunities.

:11:52.:12:01.

Jodi Ewart Shadoff. Nicely done. We have seen some good putts in the

:12:02.:12:09.

last half an hour or so. 12-under, just two players ahead of her now.

:12:10.:12:15.

Kim still leads by five shots. Michelle Wie putting on a bit of a

:12:16.:12:20.

charge. 6-under for her opening nine holes.

:12:21.:12:22.

Stacy Lewis is playing some good stuff too. Let us look at Michelle

:12:23.:12:31.

Wie's start. Start. This was her birdie chance. That moved her

:12:32.:12:37.

instantly to 8-under par. At the fourth. Another great putt.

:12:38.:12:49.

These are real bonuses. She has a bit of momentum going at

:12:50.:12:53.

the fifth. The pin the right at the back of the

:12:54.:12:57.

green. Difficult to get, just wriggles in the side door and

:12:58.:13:02.

suddenly she is 10-under. Sixth. Watch this. Long par-4, 438

:13:03.:13:13.

yards, ball above her feet, awkward. She is carrying a nine and 11 wood.

:13:14.:13:18.

This was a nine we thought. Slipped by but she nudged it in for

:13:19.:13:22.

11-under. This is starting to become something

:13:23.:13:26.

special. Tee shot the short seventh, playing 122 yards, a bang to the

:13:27.:13:30.

right of the flag and she just, watch this, checks into it and you

:13:31.:13:36.

think it has to, surely Shirley, surely Shirley, but it doesn't. The

:13:37.:13:45.

simplest of twos. Right under the hole, putting back up the hill.

:13:46.:13:53.

13-under par. It could be a low one, we have had 60 at Kingsbarns in the

:13:54.:14:00.

past with the men. Birdie chance for Masson. Ripped

:14:01.:14:07.

into the back. Top ten last week in Scotland, back-to-back birdie,

:14:08.:14:16.

11-under. In-Kyung Kim. Threated it through

:14:17.:14:24.

the narrow gap. Long, thin narrow green at the sixth. Another

:14:25.:14:27.

excellent shot. She seems to be in command of her game. She is going to

:14:28.:14:32.

be difficult to catch. We can say as much as we need somebody to really

:14:33.:14:36.

make a charge, but when you have that kind of lead, you also need the

:14:37.:14:41.

leader to drop back, and she is looking and there is no signs that

:14:42.:14:45.

we can see that she is thinking of etch dropping anything.

:14:46.:14:51.

Jodi Ewart Shadoff on the ninth for birdie.

:14:52.:14:58.

To go 13-under. Excellent putt. And she is joining

:14:59.:15:08.

Michelle Wie at 13-under. That puts her in a tie of second

:15:09.:15:14.

place alongside Michelle Wie on 13-under par, a birdie two for Lexi

:15:15.:15:19.

Thompson at the 11th hole, that moves her up to 11-under par. A bit

:15:20.:15:24.

further down the leaderboard. Charley Hull going along nicely.

:15:25.:15:27.

8-under for the Championship and Paula Creamer, a qualifier this

:15:28.:15:30.

week, she is also on 8-under par. Jodie going on nicely, that is a

:15:31.:15:46.

fantastic shot. A chance, a really good chance for a birdie at number

:15:47.:15:50.

10. Lexi Thompson here on 13th.

:15:51.:15:58.

An eagle putt. That is is a big swing, as we can see right there.

:15:59.:16:07.

She's found her game again. A little bit of a disaster at the end of

:16:08.:16:14.

yesterday's round. This is a nice pace, Ken. That is the pace we

:16:15.:16:19.

should be on. Look at the -- we've got the need for speed.

:16:20.:16:23.

Lexi Thompson, she is at the 13th. Her eagle putt came short, this

:16:24.:16:32.

short par-4 today this for a birdie. Ally McDonald. Birdie chance at the

:16:33.:16:38.

eighth. Has he got it is? She certainly has. 11-under.

:16:39.:16:40.

Nine behind. After a very nice shot here on

:16:41.:16:52.

tenth. Jodie has a burr putt to go

:16:53.:16:57.

14-under. Going into second place all by

:16:58.:17:04.

herself, four shots off the lead. Stacy Lewis, for her birdie here. On

:17:05.:17:08.

eight and she makes it. 236 to the pin, well in range for

:17:09.:17:24.

Georgia Hall. She has to get the right bounce. Where is he she going

:17:25.:17:29.

to land it judgment up over the hill, this could be really close.

:17:30.:17:36.

Magnificent shot. Way back, Lee Westwood holed on here

:17:37.:17:39.

for an albatross two, what a cracker.

:17:40.:17:46.

Michelle Wie in blistering form. She has arrived at the shortest hole

:17:47.:17:54.

on the golf course. Enjoying her best season since she

:17:55.:18:03.

won the US Open in 2014. Georgia Hall had an absolutely

:18:04.:18:08.

splendid second shot on eight, but a run of seven pars so far, needs to

:18:09.:18:13.

get on the eagle and birdie trail as fast as possible. Comfortable

:18:14.:18:23.

looking putting stance. Well, it is going to be just a birdie. 12th

:18:24.:18:41.

hole, birdie putt, Michelle Wie. Can't be. It is. My word she has her

:18:42.:18:48.

putting boots on, that is her seventh birdie today and she is now

:18:49.:18:53.

four behind In-Kyung Kim, and surely In-Kyung Kim can hear these players

:18:54.:18:55.

thundering up behind her. Georgia Hall breaks her run of seven

:18:56.:19:10.

pars with a birdie. Moves to 12-under.

:19:11.:19:21.

Stacy Lewis is having one of those Marty Feldman moments. Jodi Ewart

:19:22.:19:30.

Shadoff had a mighty fine run. Let us look at some of it.

:19:31.:19:35.

This is at the sixth. She birdied the second. Very little yesterday.

:19:36.:19:43.

And easily done. Not many birdies at six, but that was one of them.

:19:44.:19:49.

Moving on to seven, we saw lots of birdies here.

:19:50.:19:53.

Her golf ball seems to have eyes and that took her to 10-under par.

:19:54.:20:03.

A birdie at six and seven, what happened at eight? A tricky one this

:20:04.:20:09.

one, she hit it in so firmly, the brake didn't have to be taken into

:20:10.:20:14.

account at all. Birdie at eight. Now she is beginning to set up

:20:15.:20:17.

opportunities on every single hole. Here we go on nine.

:20:18.:20:23.

And in that one go, she is out in 31. At that stage 13-under par.

:20:24.:20:31.

At the tenth, very few birdies at ten, front right pin a bit spooky,

:20:32.:20:36.

there is a lovely high quality shot with a bit of, a bit of Chubby

:20:37.:20:43.

Checker on it. She tapped that one in to move to

:20:44.:20:48.

14-under. Terrific stuff. Well Lewis has been back and forward

:20:49.:20:54.

on this ninth, this is for bogey. And that is going to be a

:20:55.:20:59.

disappointing double for Stacy Lewis. Well, this small one for

:21:00.:21:06.

In-Kyung Kim to get to 19-under, that is the Championship record. It

:21:07.:21:10.

was the winning score in 2004 at Sunningdale.

:21:11.:21:15.

And in it goes. She is like a machine. 19-under par, five ahead.

:21:16.:21:27.

Doesn't seem to be lies too badly here for Georgia Hall. Not able to

:21:28.:21:32.

get any check on that wet grass. Short shot. Probably got a little

:21:33.:21:37.

blade of grass between the blade of the club and the ball. Come on Lexi.

:21:38.:21:51.

Pushed it... It does make you cross. Six on a par-5. Especially as long

:21:52.:22:05.

as she is. This would be a great save if Georgia could steer this one

:22:06.:22:12.

home. It has not got the legs. Well the error was going through the

:22:13.:22:17.

back two, virtually impossible up and down from there, that is a shot

:22:18.:22:29.

going. Drops back to 11-under. Jodi Ewart Shadoff. A birdie here

:22:30.:22:34.

will be birdie number six in a row, it was a par-5 pin at the very back

:22:35.:22:36.

of the green. Shanshan Feng at the 18th. Her

:22:37.:22:57.

birthday yesterday. 67, 11-under par.

:22:58.:23:05.

Love her outfits. Well done. First Chinese player to get an LPGA

:23:06.:23:12.

card. Always smiling. Record high prize money for the

:23:13.:23:19.

Women's British Open, the winner takes home ?387,000. Total prize

:23:20.:23:23.

fund 2.5 million. So plenty to play for.

:23:24.:23:29.

Is the birdie run going to continue for Jodi Ewart Shadoff? All good

:23:30.:23:41.

things come to an end She has had five birdies in a row. That merely a

:23:42.:23:46.

par. But what a great time of year to run

:23:47.:23:50.

into this form. Another major coming up in a couple of week, the Evian

:23:51.:23:59.

but before that the Solheim Cup. Anna Nordqvist. Battled glandular

:24:00.:24:08.

fever and a bad throat this week. Birdie 17 and birdied 18, that is a

:24:09.:24:17.

fine one. In at 11-under par. And she will be resting up now for the

:24:18.:24:21.

Solheim Cup, but there is plenty of golf to watch here on the BBC.

:24:22.:24:58.

We are all looking forward to the US PGA Championship live, we will be

:24:59.:25:07.

there and you will enjoy it with us. Now our leader and she has missed

:25:08.:25:12.

one, that is only the third shot she has missed since Thursday. A glimmer

:25:13.:25:19.

of hope for those chasing. Nine holes completed.

:25:20.:25:28.

Here is Macguys are in the tussle for the Smith salver for the low

:25:29.:25:33.

amateur. That is not good news for the Irish fans. So Macguys are drops

:25:34.:25:40.

back to 3-under. Sophie Lamb is in the clubhouse so looks like the

:25:41.:25:43.

English champion is going to take the honours. This was Sophie Lamb on

:25:44.:25:50.

the 18th with a birdie put, for her closing 69 in the Championship. She

:25:51.:25:55.

certainly made hay while the sun shone earlier on and that was a very

:25:56.:26:00.

very fine performance from the young English champion, taking the Smith

:26:01.:26:07.

salver. There were six amateurs plays. Three

:26:08.:26:17.

made the cut. Leona Macguys are won the salver last year. What does it

:26:18.:26:23.

do to someone to be part of this kind of champion I ship, a major up

:26:24.:26:27.

against the best players in the world? It is something everyone

:26:28.:26:31.

dreams of when they first start to play golf. It has been a great

:26:32.:26:35.

experience to see how my game compares to the best of the world.

:26:36.:26:38.

It has been good. The usual questions tend to come after winning

:26:39.:26:42.

the top amateur at a major, professionalism, where are you in

:26:43.:26:47.

that sort of state at the moment? My goal is for Curtis Cup next year,

:26:48.:26:50.

hopefully that is something I want to achieve before I turn

:26:51.:26:54.

professional and possibly Q school the end of next year, I am not sure,

:26:55.:26:59.

that is not definite. Curtis Cup is something I want to do. We wish you

:27:00.:27:02.

all the best. Well done this week. Thank you.

:27:03.:27:18.

Stacy Lewis. She has had a couple of untidy holes. She has kept going

:27:19.:27:23.

pretty well. In at the 13th. Eagle. Tremendous

:27:24.:27:29.

second shot and what about that for a good ball? Those eagles will

:27:30.:27:37.

smarten up your card. Michelle Wie has reached the 15th.

:27:38.:27:43.

Just played her second shot down here, into her favourite yardage,

:27:44.:27:50.

and now it is all out attack. She has been pretty deadly with

:27:51.:27:58.

those today. She is doing her best to close the gap on In-Kyung Kim.

:27:59.:28:05.

Lewis for birdie on 11. Straightens the knee, in goes the

:28:06.:28:08.

ball. And Stacy Lewis up to 11-under. Jodi

:28:09.:28:18.

Ewart Shadoff for a birdie at the 13th.

:28:19.:28:22.

Well done, she is on a great roll. Georgia Hall. Bringing it in from

:28:23.:28:45.

right-to-left. Trying to chase it up the green.

:28:46.:28:59.

Wie for a birdie at the 15th. She's done it. Oh... Oh, only another

:29:00.:29:13.

teaspoon full of juice and it would have gone in. Who knows what might

:29:14.:29:20.

have happened, or might still happen? Georgia Hall right at the

:29:21.:29:25.

far end of the course, 11th, tucked right up in the corner.

:29:26.:29:33.

Hasn't really happened for Georgie today, only had one birdie, one

:29:34.:29:38.

bogey. That might do. That is more like it.

:29:39.:29:49.

A few of them will cheer us up will stop this is a very dangerous shot

:29:50.:30:03.

for our leader. She can run up a big score if she does not say a clean,

:30:04.:30:15.

straight shot. It is not going to be too bad. It could have been a lot

:30:16.:30:22.

worse. It will be a struggle to get down in two for a par-5. Lexi

:30:23.:30:29.

Thompson at the 18th. Through the green with the second.

:30:30.:30:41.

Michelle wee, second shot to the 16th. What she wouldn't give for a

:30:42.:30:49.

birdie or two. Playing quite majestically. There is another one,

:30:50.:30:54.

right at the target. She has had a fiddly round. She has

:30:55.:31:20.

had fewer chances. A good run of birdies. A few shots thrown away. On

:31:21.:31:28.

the 12th, a short par-3. Now our leader here in three on this

:31:29.:31:52.

par-5. Look at that! A lovely touch. An exquisite touch. A lonely vigil.

:31:53.:32:01.

Michelle wee for a birdie at the 16th. This will be a fine one. Roll

:32:02.:32:15.

in. Oh, goodness gracious. She has had a few chances and they have all

:32:16.:32:21.

been left right in the centre of the whole, short by three or four

:32:22.:32:27.

inches. What might have been! Our leader with one of those nasty

:32:28.:32:38.

putts. This for a par. Yes. Nerves of steel. Well done. Nothing seems

:32:39.:32:48.

to rattle her now. All the sports psychologists tell you to play

:32:49.:32:52.

within yourself and that is what she is doing. Hall with a birdie at the

:32:53.:33:00.

12th. Up the slope. Now up she comes. Run, run, run. Yes. Better

:33:01.:33:09.

late than never. Is she on a roll? That will do her no harm at all. On

:33:10.:33:17.

her second shot here at 18 standing at 11-under, shin. It would be nice

:33:18.:33:25.

to finish with the birdie. The weather is getting worse by the

:33:26.:33:30.

second. A very nice shot. Gives her a chance for a birdie. Masson, 14

:33:31.:33:39.

for birdie. One of the really tough holes today. Nothing but the ocean

:33:40.:33:44.

on the right side. Tough to adjust when a lot of rain comes down and

:33:45.:33:51.

makes the green a lot slower. Going for a birdie at the final hole. This

:33:52.:33:56.

to finish at 12-under par. Well done.

:33:57.:34:01.

That is the equivalent of four rounds of 69th of that is good

:34:02.:34:09.

playing and trying conditions. Caroline Masson for par. Gives

:34:10.:34:18.

herself a little tester. She did not look as firm on that one. Dropping

:34:19.:34:27.

one. Michelle wee with her third shot at the 17th.

:34:28.:34:39.

-- Wie. Check on the situation as we come to the end of this year's Ricoh

:34:40.:34:50.

women's British Open. A three shot lead by In Kyung Kim. Many strange

:34:51.:34:55.

things can happen. Inbee Park for birdie. On 13. That is more like it.

:34:56.:35:08.

That is the player we know. One of the greatest putting strokes I have

:35:09.:35:18.

ever seen. Michelle Wie trying to get a par after having been in

:35:19.:35:23.

trouble off the tee. A slight right to left.

:35:24.:35:30.

Oh, what a good effort! I was robbed.

:35:31.:35:38.

I cake him here for her birdie on 13. -- I cake -- IK Kim. Michelle

:35:39.:36:02.

Wie with a second shot on 18. Not a good shot from where she was

:36:03.:36:27.

but it should not be difficult to get that up and down. This dean and

:36:28.:36:35.

a here on 17. It is a very long would in. We have seen nothing but

:36:36.:36:41.

short irons on this point. It makes a whole very tough. She does not

:36:42.:36:52.

make it look very tough. Very nice. Michelle Wie, 13-under par. This

:36:53.:36:57.

will be a handy when to pop in for 14-under. A damp fringe. Generally

:36:58.:36:59.

uphill. She has a chance. 14th today. The third hardest hole.

:37:00.:37:21.

A bit damp reasons that you can run up a big number on that. -- damp

:37:22.:37:32.

breeze. She has found the rocks. She did not make a carry. Michelle Wie

:37:33.:37:41.

on 18. Finishing up with this for a park and a round of 56. She had a

:37:42.:37:51.

problem in between. The first and last was very good. Great playing

:37:52.:37:59.

today. Found the water off the tee at the 14th and dropped back to

:38:00.:38:01.

here. This is the third shot. That was a nice kick out. You never

:38:02.:38:22.

know, it might be the one drop/. Wie still leads by three. A lovely day

:38:23.:38:31.

for Michelle Wie. Amy caught up with her. You flew out of the blocks

:38:32.:38:37.

today. What a front line. I knew I was ten shots back at the start of

:38:38.:38:42.

the day and needed to make something happen. I am proud of myself how I

:38:43.:38:47.

chased it today. I had a lot of fun. You are back up challenging in

:38:48.:38:55.

Majors. Do you feel the next one is coming? I do not think about that. I

:38:56.:39:01.

am proud of how I played in the Majors this year. It is fun being in

:39:02.:39:07.

contention. I am itching for the next win. A lot needs to happen

:39:08.:39:10.

before that. You cannot get too caught up in the result. I'm really

:39:11.:39:17.

happy. Eye-macro it started off so well. 64 on Thursday and finishing

:39:18.:39:23.

well again today. What do you take from a week at Kingsbarns? I had so

:39:24.:39:28.

much fun. The course was so amazing. Good week overall. I cannot

:39:29.:39:37.

complain. This for a birdie. This could rattle In Kyung Kim a little

:39:38.:39:42.

if she can make this. And she does. Only two behind now. Kim start with

:39:43.:39:49.

a six shot lead and now it is down to two. One of those horrible things

:39:50.:39:54.

we worked so hard all day to try to make a birdie and you make one

:39:55.:39:59.

mistake and that costs you. This for a bogey on 14.

:40:00.:40:19.

That is quite costly the way it has all clamped up at the top. This is

:40:20.:40:28.

your shadow off after a wonderful birdie on 17.

:40:29.:40:39.

-- Ewart-Shadoff. I wonder if she knows what is happening, she knows

:40:40.:40:47.

it is only two who could make the putt. That would be a little bit

:40:48.:40:51.

more difficult. All of a sudden it seems nothing when he have a six

:40:52.:40:59.

shot lead. Eye-macro her little jacket getting in the way. Very

:41:00.:41:15.

nicely done. That was a testy one. Find the bottom of the Cup. 18 and.

:41:16.:41:30.

Right, this is a big shot. 9-iron. Pitched. My goodness, that was bad

:41:31.:41:37.

luck. Another yard. Next to the flag. Oh! The flag is cut teasingly

:41:38.:41:48.

on the right-hand side of the green. Anything that is even pushed a

:41:49.:41:54.

whisker is in danger of tumbling down into the creek. Just needs to

:41:55.:42:08.

be sensible. The ball is high. Percentage play. This would set a

:42:09.:42:17.

New Course record of 63, breaking Michelle's record of 64 from

:42:18.:42:33.

Thursday. It was a good effort. I am sure there are a few collywobbles.

:42:34.:42:46.

Look at that! Born free. Supposed to finish at 16-under par. Check your

:42:47.:42:52.

line and trust your stroke. Suddenly two and a half feet is quite a long

:42:53.:43:01.

one. Come on. Brilliantly done. What around to finish with. 33, 64, 31,

:43:02.:43:13.

33. She may have done enough. Who knows? She has secured a lot. Second

:43:14.:43:22.

in the British Open. Could be first. That is how it stands at the moment.

:43:23.:43:28.

In Kyung Kim still in front. The lead has dwindled to in the course

:43:29.:43:33.

of the day. A great round by Michelle Wie. The start is Jodie

:43:34.:43:42.

Ewart-Shadoff. You had to give it something today and you did. You

:43:43.:43:47.

gave it everything. I did not think I would have a shot. I started out

:43:48.:43:54.

really strong. I hold a great putt on the 1st hole. My party was really

:43:55.:43:59.

on fire. I had a great stretch in the middle of the round to get me

:44:00.:44:05.

going and I just saw myself at the start of the round take the

:44:06.:44:07.

opportunities when I get them and that is what I did. Still a lot of

:44:08.:44:13.

golf to be played. You might even be back out there. I will sue happens.

:44:14.:44:17.

I ker such a strong player and I hope she finishes strong. How do you

:44:18.:44:24.

reflect on this week? It has been great. I did not have that much

:44:25.:44:29.

confidence coming into this week, missing the cut. This week has been

:44:30.:44:34.

a great boost of confidence. I'm excited to go to Solheim in a couple

:44:35.:44:42.

of weeks and play there. Masson, only a wedge into the last.

:44:43.:44:48.

Beautifully played. She will give herself a chance to move out the

:44:49.:45:00.

time she is in with Jenny Shin at 12 at the moment. At one point today

:45:01.:45:06.

the lead was as much as seven. It is now down to to macro. It would be a

:45:07.:45:11.

rare bonus if she manages to squeeze a birdie out of this half five. --

:45:12.:45:28.

par-5. You can see the moisture there on the green. No birdies so

:45:29.:45:42.

far. Three holes from home. Caroline Masson has had a big look at this.

:45:43.:45:49.

It is very hard to take the line. Just to close with the birdie. What

:45:50.:46:05.

a nice way to finish. 67. In a tie for the third position. Top ten and

:46:06.:46:10.

the Scottish Open. It will be the top three this week, in the open.

:46:11.:46:18.

One of the most dangerous shots on the course, especially when you're

:46:19.:46:24.

going in with a word or a rescue. Stacey has used this club to great

:46:25.:46:29.

effect. She has hit some absolute beauties with it. Kim, second shot

:46:30.:46:35.

and difficult to get all the way to this back flag. A good bounce on.

:46:36.:46:48.

That did a bit better than it deserved. She just hit it a touch. A

:46:49.:46:58.

stunning second to setup this birdie opportunity. It is tracking well.

:46:59.:47:03.

Agony. Could not have been any closer. Lewis remains at 11-under.

:47:04.:47:21.

The last truly dangerous shot on the golf course. Great contact. It has

:47:22.:47:33.

just tipped it over. It should stick. Anxious moments. Kim for

:47:34.:47:40.

birdie on 16. She has looked at it from every possible angle. What they

:47:41.:47:50.

read that was. What a wonderful part. A great effort.

:47:51.:48:03.

Preserving her to macro shot lead. The dangerous 17th to come. What a

:48:04.:48:14.

break for Georgia Hall. A six here yesterday. Go on, run it out. If you

:48:15.:48:24.

want to leave a four footer, that is not a bad angle to cut it from. The

:48:25.:48:33.

sky is brightening up a little bit. Every putt is a big part. You can

:48:34.:48:43.

make all lose a lot of money on these. A good four. 13 and in a tie

:48:44.:48:59.

for third at the moment. A balanced finish of Stacey Lewis. Another good

:49:00.:49:10.

one. Looking for it to come back. Georgia Hall turned professional in

:49:11.:49:15.

2014. Although she had a card on the ladies European Tour, she did not

:49:16.:49:19.

have a lot of funds to get herself to the tournament. She went to Dubai

:49:20.:49:25.

and won a car. Took the money instead because you did not have a

:49:26.:49:29.

driving licence. From that point, she has not looked back. What good

:49:30.:49:42.

week it has been for her. This looks like the make or break shot. This is

:49:43.:49:50.

very much the make or break shot. It is a long way that. She has a thick

:49:51.:49:58.

end of 200 yards by the time she pictures it into the middle of the

:49:59.:50:04.

green. She has done it many times over the last nearly four days now.

:50:05.:50:12.

Let's see her do it again. Get it airborne. Looks good. Oh, a

:50:13.:50:24.

fantastic shot. Fantastic. It took guts and everything. You do it

:50:25.:50:35.

slowly but you do it well. Stacey Lewis trying to close out with a

:50:36.:50:45.

birdie. No. Not to be. That is the final four. A lot of good play from

:50:46.:50:53.

her. Hard to believe it is over three years since her last victory.

:50:54.:50:58.

I do not think we will be waiting to much longer. I don't think you will

:50:59.:51:07.

be needed on the voyage. What a good week she had. You never know. At the

:51:08.:51:21.

18th, this is tricky, very quick. Did not get a kind bounce. Her name

:51:22.:51:35.

is at the top of the leaderboard. If she can steer this one home for a

:51:36.:51:42.

birdie on 17 to give herself a three shot cushion. How lovely will that

:51:43.:51:47.

walk be at the last. It is a good part. It was a very fine effort. But

:51:48.:51:55.

a very dangerous hole, consigned to the history books. Five years ago

:51:56.:52:02.

she had a putt round about that size and missed it. She lost in the

:52:03.:52:08.

player. She is fighting some historical demons right at this

:52:09.:52:21.

moment. In she goes. One hole to go. Just one hole left and there is the

:52:22.:52:30.

trophy. Simple and exquisite. Georgia, come on. This bought a

:52:31.:52:37.

round of 70. What nerves and that she has displayed. What a fantastic

:52:38.:52:42.

week. She has introduced herself to a lot of American viewers and

:52:43.:52:46.

they'll be seeing more of this young lady at the Solheim Cup. Eye-macro

:52:47.:52:52.

and so come the final hole, this is normally the 1st hole. He week ago.

:52:53.:53:04.

The wide fairway. Watch the ball. Get it through. Lots of room out

:53:05.:53:19.

there. It is all right. The final scenes here at the Kingsbarns

:53:20.:53:26.

unravelling before our very eyes. A to macro shot lead.

:53:27.:53:39.

I think, 16, 17 yesterday killed it. There was a lot of rain and stuff. I

:53:40.:53:46.

had to cope with that. What is the biggest thing you will take moving

:53:47.:53:54.

forward? Some shots have been better. I made a couple of silly

:53:55.:53:59.

mistakes. Coming third and still playing well, that is the main

:54:00.:54:07.

thing. Kim with a to macro shot lead. One good clean, straight shot.

:54:08.:54:17.

A little heavy, was it? I think it is all right. Absolutely all right.

:54:18.:54:22.

One more spin over. That is very well done. Now called to knuckle,

:54:23.:54:38.

chin to chin. Maria. She has fought hard this week. Look at that! This

:54:39.:54:49.

is going to be a grandstand finish. What a beautiful shot! She is poised

:54:50.:54:51.

to win. In for a nice bonus. That super, spinning second shot has

:54:52.:55:17.

left her with this for a birdie. Just slips past. It will all add up

:55:18.:55:33.

to a slightly disappointing 75. And it is a tie for 16th spot for Maria.

:55:34.:55:45.

Spencer Coles at the end. Three putts for victory. Taking meticulous

:55:46.:55:54.

care. A bit quick, comes a little bit from the left. Come on. What a

:55:55.:56:05.

great effort! That is it. What a splendid week it has been for her.

:56:06.:56:14.

Absolutely first class. Played with great skill and nerve. She has won

:56:15.:56:20.

this year's Championship in good style. It is great to see the

:56:21.:56:30.

victory here. As Peter was saying, solid in every single department of

:56:31.:56:40.

the game. The scoring record of 19-under still stands. The final

:56:41.:56:47.

leaderboard tells another story. Kim Leeds by two. She played in some of

:56:48.:56:57.

the worst of the weather. Congratulations. You're clutching

:56:58.:57:03.

the trophy. How much of a mental battle was that? I would have to say

:57:04.:57:10.

I was aware of how well Trudy was playing and the other players were

:57:11.:57:14.

playing and I had to follow them. Not so easy conditions. Some holes

:57:15.:57:21.

were very tough yesterday. The day was easier. I was able to keep up

:57:22.:57:30.

with him. The gap was closing. Was it giving you nerves, you could see

:57:31.:57:35.

the players catching up with you? Sign up I think they had more

:57:36.:57:40.

nervous than I did. I did not have to make aggressive choices today

:57:41.:57:45.

that they had to do it. I feel like we had the same kind of nerves. I

:57:46.:57:51.

told myself if I don't win today, it is OK. That is what I told myself

:57:52.:57:59.

and I think it helped. You are now a major champion. Thank you. More

:58:00.:58:13.

goals to come. The final major of the year. All four days live from

:58:14.:58:22.

Quail Hollow. On BBC Two at quarter past 11. What a four days it has

:58:23.:58:35.

been. All in stunning surroundings here at Kingsbarns. At the end of it

:58:36.:58:40.

all we have a new major champion. I K Kim hurled her lead to become

:58:41.:58:51.

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

The last time the title was won by a Briton was in 2009, when Scot Catriona Matthew triumphed at Royal Lytham & St Annes. The two most recent winners have hailed from Asia, with South Korea's Inbee Park victorious in 2015 and Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn succeeding her last year.
