Posted November. 24, 2002 23:00,   


Park, Se-ri(25, Tailormade) stepped back due to toothache and wrist injury.

On November 24, the third round of ADT Championship (total awards 1 million dollar), final run-off of the U.S. LPGA tour season, was held on the Trump International Golf Club(Par 72), West Palm Beach, Florida, United States.

Park, Se-ri, who fell off from first round joint lead to joint 7th the day before, continued to stagger reaching joint 11th with intermediate sum of 1-over 217 as she made two double boggies and one triple boggy at the day subtracting five strokes in total for just a day. Gap between she and Rachel Teske (Australia), who is taking solo lead with 10-under, amounts 11 strokes. Park, losing her control on Putting made double par on the seventh hole (par 5) and chalked up consecutive double boggies at 11th hole (par 3) and 15th hole (par5). Park, Ji-eun (Ewah Univ.) ranked 10th with her intermediate sum of even-par 216, but it is hardly likely that she come from behind and win the game. Kim, Mi-hyun(KTF) stopped at joint 23th with sum of 7-over and Park, Hi-jeong(CJ39 shopping) chalked up joint 27th with her sum of 11-over.

In the meantime, Karrie Webb (Australia) and Annika Sorenstam (Sweden), who pointed 9-under evenly, are trailing the lead by one stroke. Karrie Webb who one last year championship is defending her title, and Sorenstam is challenging her landmark 11 winnings in a season, 38 years after Mickey Light made the record in 1964.
