GYE Oh maintains her lead in the Women's Open golf tournament after day three competitions at the Fiji Golf Club course in Vatuwaqa.

Oh managed to score an overall gross of 228 after hitting another four over par 76 yesterday to remain in the hunt for the top prize.

Maxine Pretty, who made a bad start on the opening day of the competition, leapfrogged to second place and trails Oh by a shot on 229.

Pretty, who is also leading division one with best nett score, is former national rep Sylvia Joe's daughter and is based in Melbourne, Australia.

Defending champions Joe maintains her third rank on 241 and will need a miracle on the final day today to retain the title.

Women's Golf Fiji president Susie Yee said tough round of competition was expected adding the race was between Oh and Pretty.

"Oh has been playing consistently and Maxine has recovered from a poor start on the opening day to close in on the number one spot," Yee said.
