Perry leads the Riversdale Cup by two shots

1:44 pm on 24 February 2012

The New Zealand amateur golfer Emily Perry has fired a superb third round three under par 69 to climb to the top of the Riversdale Cup leaderboard.

Parry leads by two shots from Australians Whitney Hillier and Grace Lennon.

The 21-year-old is looking to follow in the footsteps of fellow New Zealand amateur Cecilia Cho who won the title in 2011 by four shots from compatriot Lydia Ko.

The Waikato rep Chantelle Cassidy is right in the mix as well after shooting a third round 69 to move into a share of fourth place.
