Lee6 continues to lead LPGA's Evian

Associated Press

EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France – The day after making golfing history, Jeongeun Lee6 extended her Evian Championship lead to five strokes after a 3-under-par 68 in the third round on Saturday.

She's at 18 under overall and the nearest challenger is teenage American Yealimi Noh at 13 under after carding a 4-under 67.

The 2015 champion Lydia Ko of New Zealand posted a 68 and was one shot behind the 19-year-old Noh.

South Korean Minjee Lee's 6-under 65 moved her into a three-way tie for fourth spot at 11 under with Japan's Ayaka Furue and Thailand's Pajaree Anannarukarn, who drifted back with a 1-over 72.

New world No. 1 Nelly Korda was tied for 32nd, and defending champion Jin Young Ko dropped way down to 74th after carding a miserable round of 76 including four bogeys and a double bogey.
