Jang takes command in LPGA Final Stage

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., December 5, 2014 – Ha Na Jang (Seoul, South Korea) backed up a second round 65 on the Hills Course with a third round 66 at the Jones Course to jump from eighth place into a three-shot lead at 11-under, 205, at LPGA International.
 
“I have all of my shots and short game going and the thing I need to work on is not giving myself too much pressure,” Jang said. “I need to think of it as let’s just make the top-20. I don’t need to win this one to get my card. I want to make less bogeys and just make pars to keep it calm.”
 
The No. 25 ranked golfer in the latest installment of the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings used eight birdies against a pair of bogeys to card her 6-under round on the Jones Course. The third round was a stark contrast from her first round at the Jones Course where she shot 2-over 74. Jang admitted to feeling some nerves when she started her week in Daytona Beach.
 
“I think the first round the pressure was too much,” Jang admitted. “The second day and third day my driver is better, my second shots are better and I’ve putted really nice this week.”
 
While Jang was successful on the Jones Course today she is looking forward to heading back to the Hills Course.
 
“Yeah it’s great,” Jang said of going back to play the Jones Course. “I actually like the Hills Course more so I’ll be a little bit more comfortable and relaxed.”
 
Ju Young Park (Seoul, South Korea), Alison Lee (Valencia, Calif.) and Simin Feng (Beijing, China) are three shots behind Jang at 8-under, 208.
 
Following tomorrow’s round, the field will be cut to the top-70 players and ties. Players who finish in the top-20, after Sunday’s final round, will earn membership through category 12 on the LPGA Tour priority list while those who finish 21 through 45 with earn membership through category 17. In laymen’s terms, players who finish in the top 20 will have “full-time” status on the LPGA Tour while players that finish 21 through 45 will have “conditional” status.

Former Oklahoma State golfers Julie Yang and Jayde Panos are tied for 60th and former Oklahoma golfer Chirapat Jao-Javanil is tied for 111th.
