It was not the original goal, but the Australian team is in second place in the Queen Sirikit Cup in Adelaide.
Powered by a brilliant late sum of the second round of the Doey Choi in Sydney, the host country was happy to keep a number of contenders at bay to come second.
And although a modern miracle is required to become a leader in Korea under the age of 12, Choi is confident that the Australians will appear tomorrow at Glenelg.
"I think none of us did our best, so if we can do that on Friday, we have to be good," said Choi, who made a few important par-saves in her first nine holes before they unleashed five birdies. in its closing 12 holes for a quality of three under-par 70.
"If I miss the green, I'm not that busy, because my short game has been very good and helped me tremendously."
It was enough to have the Concord member, who was fourth against the pros at the Australian Ladies Classic Bonville two weeks ago, in a fourth place individually on one to two rounds.
"I tried to think about what I did in Bonville a few weeks ago, hit greens and be patient and I did that," said Choi, who promised that the Aussies would chase Korea hard in the final round.
"I think so, we do not have much to lose and all three are playing pretty well, so we'll do the best tomorrow."
Fellow New South Wales state player Steph Kyriacou fought gallantly today after a triple-bogey seven on her opening hole, the 10th, put her on the back foot.
The Australian Master of the Amateurs champ struck back with four birdies to close the red number, but gave back a pair with another late double-bogey on the eighth to draw for a 76 and went into a shared ninth and three .
Victorian Julienne Soo could not find her range early and was disappointed to get a 84 to show her at 17 by two laps.
"It was a struggle," said Soo, who openly appreciated the scoring power of her teammates.
"Tomorrow I just want to put a score on the board and actually make a contribution … but if not, then the girls are clearly in good shape."
