Ko grabs LPGA Founders Cup lead


PHOENIX - New Zealand teen Lydia Ko fired a five-under par 67 Saturday to seize a one-stroke lead after three rounds of the LPGA Founders Cup. The South Korean-born world number four, seeking her first professional LPGA title, stood on 16-under par 200 through 54 holes. Jessica Korda, the 21-year-old US daughter of retired tennis star Petr Korda; and South Korean rookie Mirim Lee, in her third LPGA event and US debut; shared second on 201 with South Korean Yoo Sun-Young another shot back. Ko, 16, won back-to-back LPGA Canadian Women's Open titles as an amateur and could have another breakthrough two weeks before the first women's major event of the year, the Kraft Nabisco Championship. "I've just got to take the positive out of it and I'm just going to play my own game," Ko said.–AFP
