Yani bets, she shoots, she scores!
If I were a betting woman, I’d put my money on Yani Tseng every time — especially if she’s betting on herself. The 22-year-old from Taiwan took full advantage of moving day in the third round and shot a bogey-free, six-under 66 at Grand Cypress, matching the low round of the tournament.
The World No. 1 got off to a slow start in the first two rounds of the LPGA’s season-ending CME Group Titleholders, carding a four-over 76 on Friday (albeit in very, very tough conditions) for a combined two-over at the midway point.
Before teeing off on Saturday morning — in an effort to give herself some motivation — Yani made a $100 wager with her caddie, Jason Hamilton, that she would shoot better than three-under.
