Lee opens up healthy lead
Last updated: 3rd November 2012
A clean round from Korea's Lee Bo-Mee allowed her to open up a four-shot lead going into the final round of the Mizuno Classic in Japan.
Lee carded a bogey-free round of 64, including four birdies on either nine, to reach 10-under par and build a comfortable lead over home favourite Rikako Morita.
She was particularly strong between the sixth and the 12th, recordng five birdies in seven holes to put the pressure on her competitors.
Morita's four-under 68 kept her two shots ahead of a packed field, with the next 20 players separated by just three strokes.
First-round leader Jiyai Shin endured a disappointing day, carding a sloppy round of 73 that saw her drop back to three-under.
Lee won the PRGR Ladies Cup on the Japan Tour earlier this season but has no plans to cross to the LPGA even if she wins this event.
"I want to focus on the JLPGA next year," said Lee. "I don't have any plans to go to the LPGA but I will think about trying for it again in two or three years.
"I hope to have less attention on Sunday because there are so many good players here. But I will focus only on my playing."
