Ai Miyazato: Bogey-free third round in Arizona
Ai Miyazato will take a two-shot lead into the final day of the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup in Arizona after carding a flawless third-round 67.
Stacy Lewis reeled in the Japanese star as she cruised to the turn in 33 and then birdied 10 and 11 to join Miyazato on 16 under.
But Miyazato responded with three birdies in four holes from the 12th as the American's putter suddenly went cold.
Lewis trimmed the lead back to two with a birdie at the last to post a bogey-free 66, and Miyazato closed with three solid pars to retain her lead on 19 under.
South Korea's Jee Young Lee had started the day one stroke ahead of Miyazato, but she could only par the first 11 holes before dropping a shot at the 12th.
Lee carded her lone birdie of the round at the 17th to salvage a 72 which left her four adrift of the leader.
Angela Stanford (65) and Lizette Salas (66) both kept a bogey off their cards as they moved to 13 under alongside Sweden's Solheim Cup ace Anna Nordqvist (67) cost herself outright fourth with a bogey at the final hole.
