Nordqvist stretches her lead

Anna Nordqvist produced another quality round and will take a four-shot advantage into the final round of the Honda LPGA Thailand.

The Swede compiled a classy five-under-par 67 to take her total to 11 under par following Saturday’s third round at the Siam Country Club in Pattaya.

A birdie at the second was followed by a bogey at the fifth, but Nordqvist would excel on the back nine, eagling the long 10th before adding three more birdies for an inward 31.

Lying four shots adrift, however, is World No 1 Inbee Park, who shot a 67 of her own to lie on seven under alongside Michelle Wie, who carded a 69.

Paraguay’s Julieta Granada is alone in fourth place on six under after a 71, while four more big names follow on five under – former top-ranked player Yani Tseng (66), Cristie Kerr (68), Lydia Ko (69) and Lexi Thompson (69).
