The ANA Inspiration is one of the five major championships of professional women's golf. Sung Hyun hasn't had a formal swing coach in years, so she'll rely on the eyes of caddie David Jones to help find the form that led to opening rounds of 68-64.

American Amy Olson is second at 11 under through 54 holes following back-to-back 68s.

Park (74) is four back at 10-under in a pack of players that also includes Park In-bee, Moriya Jutanugarn, Jennifer Song, Jodi Ewart Shadoff and Charley Hull at 10-under par.

Uehara sits one stroke behind Park and five others tied for third, and will need an inspired final round Sunday if she is to become the first Japanese woman to win a major since Hisako Higuchi claimed the LPGA championship in 1977.

Sung Hyun Park of South Korea hits from rough on the 18th hole during the second round of the LPGA Tour ANA Inspiration golf tournament at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California.

So if you're picking a potential victor and you value experience, you might want to go with Inbee Park.

Lindberg went into Saturday's final group with the mindset of "How often do you get this chance?"

World No 95 Lindberg is in new territory as she bids to win her first career title in her 250th tournament appearance.

"Just not put myself in too much trouble and then my short game and putting have been great", Lindberg said. She holed a 20-footer for birdie at the 14th to regain sole possession of the lead. My mind's not like everywhere on the golf course. You have to be really straight off the tee.

SA bat first against scandal-hit Australia at Wanderers
Lehmann said one of his proudest moments as coach of Australia was the manner in which they dealt with the death of Philip Hughes. De Villiers completed his third consecutive fifty in the series but became Sayers maiden wicket when he edged one to the keeper.

Moving Day, as the next to last round is customarily called, created enough of a seismic jolt at the top of the leaderboard to reinforce that "anything can happen" theory.

Jessica Korda shot 73 and fell from third to a tie for 10th. She played in three more tournaments in July and August before taking September off to allow her body time to heal. Minjee Lee of Australia, who started the day tied for 63rd, ended it tied for 12th after a 64.

"I think it's going to be interesting", Olson said. "Now I'm 8 (under)". "I just didn't miss many shots out there".

Sounds so simple, doesn't it?

Lindberg was not fretting over her next-day strategy Friday night when she and her parents, visiting from Sweden, hopped into a gondola that took them to the summit of a nearby mountain, where they hiked around in the cooler temperatures.

Lindberg made a 20-foot birdie putt on the first hole, bogeyed the par-3 fifth for her first dropped stroke of the week, and rebounded with a 20-foot par save on the par-4 sixth.

"I've been in a little trouble two weeks ago, and then trying to get back to what I should feel and work on that a lot".

Olson hasn't won at this level, but she has plenty of experience hoisting a trophy.

The 72-hole record of 19-under 269 was also set by Pepper in 1999.
