Minjee Lee poised to retain LPGA Tour’s Founders

Australia’s defending champion Minjee Lee has seized a three-shot following the third round of the LPGA Tour’s Founders Cup in Clifton, New Jersey.

The world number six vaulted to the top of the leaderboard with a five-under-par 67, as fellow Australian Sarah Kemp crashed after enjoying a share of the halfway lead.

Relishing the tight fairways and firm greens at Upper Montclair Country Club, Lee reeled off four birdies and an eagle to soar to 12-under for the tournament.

Her nearest pursuers are American Angel Lin (68) and South Korean Hae Ran Ryu (70) at nine-under.

Australian rookie Grace Kim, a winner of her maiden LPGA Tour event in Hawaii last month, is continuing her great run to be joint seventh at seven-under with American Cheyenne Knight (71) following a third-round 68.
