Mimi Ho takes a slender lead into the final round of the Hong Kong Ladies Close Amateur Championship after a composed 71 at Discovery Bay Golf Club yesterday. The 15-year-old was consistent over the cliff-top layout, her home course, carding two birdies and one bogey in a one-under-par effort to steal a march on defending champion Tiffany Chan and first-round leader Tiana Lau. Chan, pre-tournament favourite, is in second after a 73 to be two shots back, while Lau, who impressed on day one with a 71, slumped to an 80 to fall four strokes in arrears.
