Ireland improved their position on the third day of the Espirito Santo Trophy run over the Montgomerie and O’Meara courses at Carton House.

The Irish team, playing for the second time on the heavily bunkered Montgomerie course moved into fourth position overall as the USA held their lead, the world number one, two and three amateur players holding off the Republic of Korea in second place and Japan in third with Ireland alone holding fourth place.

The Irish team of Olivia Mehaffey, Annabel Wilson and Paula Grant had fallen back on day two. But on what is perceived as the more difficult course they again showed their strength.

Mehaffey came home in an impressive two under par on a day when plus figures were common place, while Wilson, the 17-year-old schoolgirl from Lurgan, was level par for her round and Wilson one over.

The Americans again showed who were the favourites for this World Amateur Team Championships with the world number one Jennifer Kupcho shooting under par with a 71 and Kristen Gillman level for the day.

That came after the USA set a 36-hole scoring mark on day two of the championships, fuelled by matching bogey-free scores of eight under 65 from the top amateur Kupcho and Gillman on the O’Meara Course, which gave them a one-stroke lead over defending champion Republic of Korea coming into day three.

In the individual scoring Ireland’s Mehaffey holds fifth position on the leaderboard on four under. Two Americans Gillman on six under and Kipcho on 11 under occupy fourth and third with Ayean Cho from the Republic of Korea leading on 14 under and Japan’s Yuka Yasuda on 13 under in second place.

In the final round on Saturday Ireland will again play the O’Meara course hoping to raise themselves into the medal positions.
