Northern Ireland’s Stephanie Meadow, 30, who struggled to keep her LPGA card last season, is tied for 10th after three rounds at Congressional, and has a chance for her best finish of the season. (Her best so far is a tie for 10th at the JTBC Classic presented by Barbasol.)
“I was talking to Leona (Maguire, of Ireland) about it, and she was saying it doesn't matter where you are, you are always striving for more. That's her personality,” Meadow said Saturday after a third-round 72.
“It's like, oh, you know, last year it was top 100. This year my focus is to get into the TOUR Championship, get to at the Asia at end of the year. It's just funny how your mindset shifts.
“We're never satisfied. I wouldn't want myself to be satisfied because I know I can push myself, but I think sometimes you do need to take a step back and be grateful and acknowledge how well I’ve played.”
