Feng Shanshan takes a slender one-shot lead into the final round of the LPGA Volvik Championship after firing in six birdies in Michigan.
The Chinese player produced a six under par round of 66 on Saturday to move to 15-under overall – one shot ahead of American Lizette Salas.
Feng has finished in the top 10 on three occasions this season, although she hasn’t tasted a tour victory since last year’s Japan Classic.
But back-to-back birdies on her final two holes gave her an advantage at the leaderboard summit after Salas bogeyed the last.

“I started the round a little slowly. I was only one-under through eight holes and then I made two putts in a row on the ninth and 10th,” Feng said.
“After that I was just feeling like, ‘Oh, I can start making birdies,’ and I was more comfortable.
“I’m feeling good about my condition right now and what I’ve done the first three days, so I am looking forward to the final day.”
Norway’s Suzann Pettersen is in third on 13 under, while overnight leader Park Sung-Hyun and fellow South Korean player Lee Jeong-Eun are a shot further back.
