Feng leads by two
Shanshan Feng edged ahead of the field to earn a two stroke lead at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic in Canada.
Feng took advantage of the calm conditions to card four under 67 at the Grey Silo course. The round sees her reach 15 under for the tournament, two shots clear of Inbee Park and Michelle Wie.
While the Chinese national got off the great start with a birdie on the first, it was the eagle on the par five fifth followed by another birdie on the following hole that saw her shoot up the leaderboard.
Feng remained consistent and a birdie on the eleventh would be her last for the day, with a bogey on the 16th pegging her back.
“Maybe that actually made me think a little more that I wanted to do better – then I couldn’t make a lot of putts, said the 24-year-old, who is China’s sole representative on the LPGA Tour.
“Actually I missed a lot of birdie putts and then plus one bogey, so actually I dropped back one shot.”
Meanwhile Park had a flawless round of 65 with six birdies and no bogeys. The South Korean recently dropped down to second in the rankings after she was overtaken by Stacy Lewis.
“Just the first (win) is very important,” said the 25-year-old from Seoul, who is 13 under for the tournament.
“That gives you so much confidence that you can just play without the pressure for the next event.”
Wie is also on 13 under, while Cristie Kerr of the United States is three shots off the pace in fourth place.
Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist and New Zealand’s teen-sensation Lydia Ko are both sitting on 11 under going into the final round.
