SYLVANIA, Ohio, July 9 (UPI) -- Hee-Won Han shot a 5-under 66 Saturday for an 11-under 202 total and a two-stroke lead in the third-round of the LPGA Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic.

Jeong Jang shot a 4-under 67 and is alone in second place at 204. Defending champion Meg Mallon and 50-year-old Marilyn Lovander both had 68s and are tied for third place at 205.

Han began Saturday's third round one shot behind Hall of Famer Beth Daniel.

Han will be playing with a familiar face in Sunday's final round. She played junior golf with Jang and the two are friends, often times playing practice rounds together.

Leta Lindley shot a 68 and is alone in fifth place at 206.

U.S. Women's Open champion Birdie Kim posted an even-par 71 and is tied for sixth place with Becky Morgan (68), Sung Ah Yim (68) and Heather Bowie (69) at 207.
