Inbee Park shot a second straight 69 and her third spherical in the 60s this week to race out to a five-shot lead heading into the final spherical of the Kia Classic.

Park, who has 20 wins in her LPGA career, had four birdies and a bogey on Saturday at the Aviara Golf Membership in Carlsbad, California.

Mel Reid, Minjee Lee and Mi Jung Hur are all at 7 below, five back.

Madelene Sagstrom doubled the primary hole on Saturday however then ripped off birdies on seven of her subsequent eight holes, made the turn with a 31 and went on to put up the most efficient spherical of the week so far with a 64. She indubitably realized one thing after posting scores of 72 and 74 the primary two days. Sagstrom is in a three-way tie in Fifth with World No. 1 Jin Younger Ko and Lexi Thompson.
