Amy Yang and Minjee Lee share LPGA Thailand lead
Amy Yang and Minjee Lee will take a two-shot lead into the final round of the Honda LPGA Thailand at Siam Country Club Pattaya.
South Korean Yang and Australian Lee managed to push overnight leader Jenny Shin down into third place after rounds of 66 and 67 respectively on Saturday.
Lee grabbed the share of the lead after holing a monster putt from off the 18th green.

The lead on 15 under par, with Shin following in third place two strokes back after only managing a third-round 70.
Last week’s winner in Australia, Nelly Korda, continued her good run of form to lie tied-fourth alongside Austin Ernst and Eun-Hee Ji.
Korda added a well-played 66 to her opening rounds of 69 to put herself in contention for back-to-back LPGA wins.
At 11 under, the likes of Lizette Salas, Brooke Henderson and Carlota Ciganda can’t be ruled out either.
World No 1 Ariya Jutanugarn has probably left herself with too much to do, however. She lies seven shots back alongside sister Moriya after a third-round 68.
