Hyo Joo Kim began the day tied with Lydia Ko and fired a 7-under-par, 64, to take a three-shot lead in the third round of the Marathon Classic Presented by Owens Corning and O-I. Kim's putter was hot with seven birdies on the day including four in a row on holes 7, 8, 9 and 10 needing only 27 putts to complete the day.

“I hit good drives, good tee shots, and iron shots, and I managed to get up-and-down, and I made good putts,” Kim said of her round. “It was good.”

Fans can expect more of today when Kim tees it up Sunday for the final round.

“I'm going to feel the same thing,” explained Kim. “I'm not going to feel -- final round I'm not going to try to feel pressure. But it's the same thing as yesterday, just try to feel the swing, keep going.”

Second-year member, Alison Lee, shot 5-under-par 66, for a share of second with the three-time winner this year, Lydia Ko.

“It feels great,” Lee on her shoulder. “Feels like I'm playing golf again. I'm actually having a great time out there and committing to the shot and watching the ball go where I want it to go. I feel really confident going into tomorrow. It's definitely been a while since I've felt like this, but it was worth the wait.”
