Inbee Park and Sun-Young Koo share Pure Silk-Bahamas Classic third round lead

TWO South Koreans, Inbee Park and Sun-Young Koo, are tied for the lead at 11 under par after the completion of the third round of the Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic this morning at the Ocean Club course, Paradise Island.

Park finished with a round of three under par 70 for a three-round total of 208, level with her compatriot who carded a second successive 69. The Koreans were one stroke ahead of Brittany Lincicome, Hee Young Park and Ariya Jutanugarn while the biggest moves through the field were made by the Americans Lexi Thompson and Stacy Lewis.

Nineteen-year-old Thompson finished with a third round 66 - the joint lowest round of the week – and Lewis, who was runner up last year, a 67 to move into contention.

The final round is underway with a host of players vying for victory in the $1.3m tournament. After 54 holes 30 players – including world No.1 Lydia Ko - are within five shots of the lead.
