Chun In-gee will take a three-shot lead into the final round of the Women’s PGA Championship after battling to a three-over-par 75 in Saturday’s third round.
The South Korean world number 33, who dominated play over the first two days to open up a six-shot lead at the halfway stage, found the going tougher on Saturday at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland.
Although Chun led the field by as many as seven shots early in her round, she saw her advantage gradually shrink as she came down the stretch, with a bogey on the 15th and double-bogey on the 16th leaving her just three shots clear.
Australia’s Hannah Green is in the mix, alone in fifth place on the leaderboard on four-under after her even-par 72.
Fellow Aussie and US Open champion Minjee Lee is six shots off the lead.
