EDINA, Minn., June 28 (UPI) -- Stacy Lewis, who turned pro June 9 before qualifying for the U.S. Women's Open, shot a 6-under 67 Saturday to take the third-round lead in Edina, Minn.

Lewis, a 23-year-old who tied for fifth at the 2007 Kraft Nabisco Championship as an amateur, completed 54 holes at 9-under 210 for a one-shot lead over Paula Creamer. Creamer, a six-time winner on the LPGA Tour, had a 69 in the third round to move into second place at 211.

Helen Alfredsson and Inbee Park both shot 71 Saturday and are tied for third at 212.

Kyung Kim shot a 69 to move into fifth place at 213. Mi Hyun Kim, who is one shot back after her third-round 70, is one of four players to play three rounds under par this week.

Overnight leader Angela Park turned in a 2-over 75 to fall into a tie for seventh, at 215, with reigning U.S. Women's Amateur champion Maria Jose Uribe (72).

Three-time U.S. Open champion Annika Sorenstam moved into a share of 13th at 217 after shooting 72 Saturday.
