Alabama's Emma Talley Has Good Round

KARUIZAMA, Japan – Junior golfer Emma Talley shot a bogey-free round of 4-under par 68 for the United States during the third round of action at the 2014 Women’s World Amateur Team Championships.

Talley, who is expected to lead the Alabama women's golf team this year, played the front nine at 3-under, making birdies on holes three and four, while she played the back nine at 1-under with a birdie on 11 before paring the final seven holes. Her score counted toward the team total.

The United States used Talley’s performance in the third round the springboard into a tie with Denmark for 6th. Overall, the United States fired a team total of 8-under 136 on Friday, and now sits at 14-under 418 for the championship.

Canada leads going into the final round with a team total of 23-under 409. The Republic of Korea sits in second at 21-under.

The final round gets underway Saturday with Talley teeing off at 10:05 a.m. (JST) at the 6,311 Iriyama Course. She will be paired with golfers from Germany and Sweden. Talley previously played the Iriyama Course during the second round, when she fired an even-par round of 72.
