SYLVANIA, Ohio, July 12 (UPI) -- Paula Creamer shot a third-round 1-under-par 70 Saturday and held a four-shot lead in the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic in Ohio.

Creamer, seeking her third LPGA win this season, is at 18-under 195.

The 21-year-old Creamer, of Windermere, Fla., had a stunning 11-under 60 in the first round -- a stroke off the tour record -- and a 65 in the second.

Eun-Hee Ji carded a 68 to hold second place at 14-under 199.

Rachel Hetherington (67) is third at 11-under 202.

"I only shot 1-under, but at the same time I have a pretty significant lead going into tomorrow and it's only 18 holes," Creamer said.

"Winning wire-to- wire, that's difficult to do. There is a lot of pressure on you in that situation, especially the first day shooting 60. Anything higher than that, people think, what's going on?"
