Karin Sjodin pulls even with top-ranked Yani Tseng heading to final round at Kraft Nabisco
RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (AP) ' Sweden's Karin Sjodin shot a steady 4-under 68 through heavy wind while chasing down top-ranked Yani Tseng on Saturday, pulling even at 9 under heading into the final round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship.
The dominant Tseng proved she's not unbeatable, showing visible frustration while posting a 71 as inconsistent as the wind that buffeted Mission Hills throughout her round.
While Tseng is a five-time major champion, the long-hitting Sjodin has never won in seven seasons on the LPGA Tour. Yet Sjodin made just one bogey in a remarkable round, briefly taking the outright lead down the stretch.
Haeji Kang is two strokes back after struggling to a 72, but will join Tseng and Sjodin in the final group Sunday. Na Yeon Choi is among five players at 6 under.
