YARRALUMLA, Australia — Casey Danielson continued to improve Sunday on the front nine at Royal Canberra GC during the third and final round of the Ladies European Tour ActewAGL Canberra Classic, her first stint on the weekend on the LET.

However, the Osceola native had to rally on the back nine to match her even-par 36 from the front.

Her even-par 72 dropped her two spots on the leaderboard into a tie for 15th place and her first LET paycheck was worth € 1,455.89 (or about $1,760). Danielson finished at at 3-under 213 — 16 shots behind South Korea's Jiyai Shin, who shot an 8-under 64 to move past second-round leader Minjee Lee of Australia and win by six shots with a 197 total. 

Danielson opened with a birdie on the par-5 first hole, but then bogeyed Nos. 3 and 9 around a birdie at No. 7 to make the turn in even-par 36. She has now shaved one shot off her front-nine score each day since an opening 38.

On the back nine, Danielson took advantage of both par-5s, birdieing each of them at Nos. 15 and 18, but only after bogeying the preceding holes (Nos. 14 and 17).

Australia's Katherine Kirk, who won the inaugural Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic last year near Green Bay, struggled to a closing 74. She finished tied for 26th at 2-under 214.
