SINGAPORE, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Katie Futcher, Jenny Shin and Angela Stanford each shot 1-under-par 71 Saturday and are tied for first at the LPGA's HSBC Women's Champions event in Singapore.

Each of the leaders had two birdies and a bogey in Saturday's third round for a 54-hole total of 9-under 207. Feng Shanshan, whose 3-under 69 was one of only four rounds better than 70 Saturday, moved into fourth place along at 7-under.

World No. 1 Yani Tseng, who had the best round of the day with a 67, is tied with Choi Na-yeon (71 Saturday) and Jiyai Shin (70) at 6-under.

Stanford opened the day with a bogey but birdies at 5 and 9 kept her close to the lead as she had nine pars in the second nine.

Shin also had an early bogey -- at the fourth -- but birdies at 11 and 18 got her to 1-under for the round.

Futcher had the lead most of the day after a birdie at the second hole and another at No. 9. She carded eight straight pars but a bogey at the 18th dropped her back into a tie with Shin and Stanford.
