KUTZTOWN, Pa., Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Grace Park played the final five holes in five-under par Saturday en route to a seven-under 65 and a one-shot lead at the Wachovia LPGA Classic.
Park completed 54 holes with a new tournament scoring record of 17-under-par 199.
Park, who broke Michelle Ellis' 54-hole record of 201 set in 2002, posted a new 54-hole scoring mark one day after Jill McGill established a new 36-hole scoring record. McGill followed her second-round 64 with a two-under 70 on Saturday and is in second place at 16-under-par 200.
Soo-Yun Kang at one point owned a share of the lead in round three, but ended two strokes off the pace at minus-15. Laura Diaz shot five-under 67 to move to 14-under-par 202.
Park, who won the Kraft Nabisco Championship earlier this year, began her day four strokes behind McGill.
