Jang edges ahead in Singapore after another bogey-free day
Yahoo News - 12 months
Jang Ha-na will take a one-shot lead into the final round of the HSBC Women's Champions after the in-form Korean edged ahead of her playing partners on Saturday to remain on course for a second LPGA title in her last four starts. Jang shot a four-under-par 68 to move to 12-under for the tournament, one ahead of Thailand's Pornanong Phatlum and two clear of joint overnight leader Lee Mi-rim and Amy Yang as Koreans filled three of the top four spots on the leaderboard. Ariya Jutanugarn, Brooke Henderson, Stacy Lewis and Suzann Petterson are in a group of six players four shots off the lead but they will most likely need to shoot in the low 60s on Sunday if they are to overhaul the supremely consistent Jang.
