Jang holds Marathon Classic lead

News

Ha Na Jang continues to lead the way at the Marathon Classic and will take a one-shot lead into the final round at the Highland Meadows Golf Club.

The South Korean is aiming to lead from start to finish, with her third round of 69 lifting her to eleven-under and one shot clear of Q Baek.

A group of five players that is headed by world number one Inbee Park and world number two Lydia Ko are a further shot back.

Jang, who is looking for her first title in the US, carded three birdies and a lone bogey on Saturday, despite still suffering from a back injury which forces her to end her swing with one hand off the club.

Baek rose out of the crowd chasing Jang with a birdie at the par-five 18th to complete a round of 68 which leaves her on ten-under.

Park (67), Ko (67), Austn Ernst (66), Chella Choi (65) and Shanshan Feng (68) are in a tie for third on nine-under.
