Pernilla Linberg of Sweden has taken the Ana Inspiration on a surprise ride to be in a position to win and take a leap into the famous “Poppies Pond”. The 31-year-old Swede shot a 2-under 70 on an overcast day at the Rancho Mirage Mission Hills Golf Club pulling away when playing partner Sung Hyun Park game collapsed on the back nine.

She broke the tournament 54-hole mark at 14-under 202. With yesterday’s breakaway score, the stage is now set for a major upset in the ladies golf world. Linberg’s putter was on point as she maneuvered through the back nine. Linberg’s best finish in the Majors was a tie for third in the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia.

Pairing with Linberg on the final round on Sunday is Amy Olson, the U.S. Girls Junior champ in 2009 and is currently ranked 218th in the world.
