GUADALAJARA, Mexico, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Suzann Pettersen
overcame shaky play late in the round Saturday to post a one-shot lead after three rounds at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational.
Despite bogeying two of her last four holes, Pettersen shot a 3-under 69 to finish 54 holes at 12-under 204 at Guadalajara Country Club in Mexico.
That's one shot better than In-Kyung Kim (68), Karine Icher (68), former world No. 1 Ai Miyazato (68) and Stacy Lewis (69), each of whom were tied for second at 11-under 205.
Paula Cremer, who led after Friday's second round, stumbled to an even-par 72 and found herself in sixth place at minus-10.
Tourney namesake Lorena Ochoa registered a 3-under 69, good for a 24th-place tie at minus-2.
