Park takes 3-shot lead in Kraft Nabisco
Inbee Park opened a three-stroke lead in the Kraft Nabisco Championship at Rancho Mirage, Calif., twice hitting to 2 1-2 feet to set up back-nine birdies in a bogey-free round.
The 24-year-old South Korean shot a 5-under 67 on Saturday to reach 12 under at Mission Hills, putting her in position for her second major title and second victory of the year. She won the 2008 U.S. Women's Open and added her fourth LPGA Tour title in February in Thailand.
Lizette Salas, a stroke behind Park entering the round, had a 69 to remain second.
Hall of Famer Karrie Webb, the tournament winner in 2000 and 2006, was five strokes back at 6 under along with Suzann Pettersen, Angela Stanford, Jessica Korda, Karine Icher and Pornanong Phatlum. Stanford had a 66, the best round of the tournament.
Horschel leads Texas Open
Billy Horschel held off an experienced leaderboard to shoot 2-under 70 and take a two-shot lead entering the final round of the Texas Open.
Horschel, who also held the lead after the second round, battled through the gusting San Antonio wind to reach 10 under overall - two shots ahead of Jim Furyk and Charley Hoffman.
The Florida native was second at last week's Houston Open and extended his PGA Tour-best streak of consecutive made cuts to 21 this week.
Rory McIlroy shot a 1-under 71 and is four shots back. McIlroy tied for the low round on Friday with a 67, but he was inconsistent off the tee on Saturday and had four birdies and three bogeys.
