Despite pushing her trolley for three weeks straight on the LPGA Tour, Lindsey Weaver said she feels no fatigue heading into the final round of the AIG Women’s Open. After an up-and-down day highlighted by a massive chip-in to save par from the rough on No. 12, Weaver finished at +1 overall and sits in a tie for fourth. She’s just five shots out of the lead, relentless as ever to stay in the hunt for a major title.
“It was pretty good. Didn't start off that great. I made bogey on 2 but quickly made birdie to recover on 4. So it was just playing pretty steady,” said Weaver. “It always bites to bogey the last, but other than that, it was a pretty good day I thought and just hope that I can continue it into tomorrow.”
Weaver’s fiancé, Korn Ferry Tour player Zach Wright, is currently competing across the ocean in the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship. Even with the time difference, the couple have continuously caught up before and after rounds, and Weaver is thankful they can still keep in touch while adjusting to their playing schedules.
“Yesterday on his commute to the golf course, which is about 45 minutes, he would watch on YouTube TV and he said he saw me play. So he watches while he's on his drive there, which is nice. But it's just a constant
balance, especially with the time change now, and I know like last week, he was in Boise and so we were seven hours apart and now we are five hours apart. It's a little more manageable, and it's always like he's finishing and I'm going to sleep and he's waking up and I'm on the golf course,” said Weaver. “It's kind of a weird dynamic. It's just nice to have someone there to support you and be able to talk about who can relate so well.”
