Jutanugarn leads LPGA Thailand
Thai teenager Ariya Jutanugarn shot a 2-under 70 Saturday to lead by three strokes after the third round of the LPGA Thailand despite finishing with two bogeys.
Last year's top-ranked amateur, Ariya holed seven birdies - including five straight from No 10 onward - for an 11-under 205 total at the Siam Country Club Pattaya Old Course.
Next were Stacy Lewis (76), Se Ri Pak (71) and Beatriz Recari (72), one stroke ahead of Inbee Park (71). Lewis, the third-ranked American, finished with three bogeys to lose her three-stroke lead after the second round.
Defending champion Yani Tseng, the No 1 player in the world, shot a 72 for a share of 24th place.
