Lydia carded a third round -5 under par 67 to post a 54 hole total of -14 under par, giving her a three shot lead going into the final round of the Kia Classic tomorrow;

“You don’t get that many opportunities where you’re going into the final round with a few-shot lead.”

“But I’ll take it. I’d rather be a couple shots ahead than a couple shots behind.”

Sung Hyun Park, -4 under 68 today, Brittany Lang -2 under 70, and Jenny Shin -1 under 71, all share second place, those three shots back at -11 under par for the tournament.

Inbee Park is in fifth place at -10 under par for the three rounds, -2 under 70 today let Lydia get away from her. You can not really give the World #1 a three shot start at the beginning of the last round and expect to have a chance of winning.

Candie Kung, from Taipei shot the low round of the day, -7 under par 65, unfortunately -7 under is also her tournament total. She breezed through the first 17 holes, bogey free today, before finding trouble on the 18th on her way to collecting a double bogey.  Candy had a chance at the Aviara Golf Club course record as she walked to the 18th, but she was still happy with her round;

“Everything went pretty smooth out there today.”

”The greens were definitely smoother than the last couple days with less footprints and I played earlier than a lot of people.”

“So the greens were smooth. I played great. I had a very good 17 and a half holes.”

“It was just one of those shots that I put a bad swing on it and it happened on the wrong hole.”

“Happened on the wrong shot. I didn’t think I missed it that,  the shot that I missed, if it would have been on the other holes, it would have been okay.”

“It wasn’t really that far left of where I was aiming, but it happens.”
