Aiken native Matt Hendrix four back in event

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Aiken native Matt Hendrix had 4-under-par 68 on Sat­ur­day and trails by four shots heading into today’s final round of the Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship at Highland Springs Country Club.


Hendrix is tied for 14th at 13-under 203.

David Lingmerth (65) and Scott Harrington (66) share the lead at 17-under 199.

Augusta’s Scott Parel shot 72 and is tied for 56th at 209.

LPGA TOUR: In Sylvania, Ohio, South Koreans Jiyai Shin, I.K. Kim, So Yeon Ryu and Hee Kyung Seo share the top spot at 11-under-par 202 through the third round of the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic.

Two more South Koreans, Inbee Park and Chella Choi, are a shot back along with Japan’s Mika Miyazato.

Shin and Kim each shot 5-under 66 for the low rounds of the day, while Ryu had 67 and Seo 68.

South Koreans have dominated the LPGA Tour in recent years, but have seldom taken over a tournament like the one at Highland Meadows. In addition to filling the top four spots and six of the top seven, South Korean players had seven of the top 11 positions.

WOMEN’S AMATEUR: In Cleveland, Lydia Ko and Jaye Marie Green advanced to the 36-hole final, winning semifinal matches in wet and windy conditions at The Country Club.

The 15-year-old Ko, the New Zealander who tops the world amateur rankings, beat Thailand’s Ariya Jutanugarn 3 and 1. The 18-year-old Green, from Boca Raton, Fla., edged Canada’s Nicole Zhang 2-up.

At 15 years, 3 months, 18 days, Ko is the second-youngest finalist in Women’s Amateur history, and could become the second-youngest champion. Both records are held by Kimberly Kim, who was 14 years, 11 months, 21 days when she won the 2006 tournament. Ko won the New South Wales Open in January in Australia at 14 to become the youngest player to win a professional tour event.
