NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 11/05/2017

New Zealand's trio of golfers have fallen off the pace at the Queen Sirikit Cup women's amateur team golf tournament dominated once again by Korea.

After two of three rounds, New Zealand are ninth out of 13 nations at Zhangjiagang City in China.

They slipped one place overall on Thursday, to 12-over, after Alana Campbell shot a one-over 73 and Amelia Garvey a 74 in their two scoring rounds. Rosie Zheng carded a 77.

Korea lead on eight-under, five strokes clear of second-placed Japan, and appear set to win their 10th title in the last 11 editions of the Asia-Pacific event.

Korean pair So-mi Lee and Hye-jin Choi share the individual lead on four-under.

The best of the Kiwis in 16th place is Campbell (six-over), who is five strokes ahead of her two team-mates.
