Min Lee from the small country of Taiwan shot a 4-under 68 and will enter Sunday’s finale of the LPGA Mediheal Championship holding a two shot lead.
The 26-year old Taiwanese signed for a third-round scorecard featuring five birdies and one bogey to reach 9-under par.
“I just tried to play my game and tried to be smart on the golf course, because the golf course is very hard,” said Lee.
“There is some pin placement that you want to be on the fat side of the green if you miss it.
“So I was very focusing on it.”
Matilda Castren (69) and Lauren Kim (71) were next at 7 under, one clear of Albane Valenzuala (68) and A Lim Kim (69) who rounded out the top-5 leaders on 6 under.
