Park four clear in windy Taiwan

Inbee Park stretched her lead at the LPGA Taiwan Championship to four strokes on Saturday.

Park went three-under in windy conditions and had an eagle, four birdies and three bogeys to show for her efforts in conditions that were very testing due to the persisting wind.

In her first tournament since reclaiming the No.1 raking from Stacey Lewis, Park played conservatively when it was required, but was also not afraid to take risks when presented with opportunities to do so.

Park won the LPGA Championship in August for her second victory of the year and fifth major title.

The second-ranked Lewis returned a stunning round of 64 to move into a tie for second along with China’s Shanshan Feng.

Feng had a carded a 70 while Spain’s Azahara Munoz ended the third round in fourth place following her round of 69.

South Korea’s So Yeon Ryu was another stroke back at 12-under-par leaving the third-ranked Lydia Ko in a tie for sixth at 11 under.

The 17-year-old New Zealander won the Swinging Skirts World Ladies Masters in December at Miramar.
