Moriya Jutanugarn's 68 gives her lead at Evian Championship in pursuit of first LPGA win

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez delivers against the Chicago White Sox during the fifth inning of a baseball game Friday Sept. 15 2017 in Detroit

Kirk peeled off a five-under-par 66 to sit alongside Anna Nordqvist, one behind Moriya Jutanugarn and three from leader Sung Hyun Park, the luckiest player in the field.

She won the title in 2009 and 2011 - it became a major in 2013.

Song shot a bogey-free 5-under 65 on Saturday and sits four strokes behind leader Moriya Jutanugarn heading into tomorrow's final round of The Evian Championship. The 33-year old LPGA veteran has only one other top 10 this season, a T6 finish in July at the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic.

"I chipped in for birdie at the first hole, so that was a good start", she said.

"They were flawless conditions (so) I was happy I was able to capitalise".

LPGA Tour officials, to the consternation of many, cancelled existing scores and made it a 54-hole tournament starting afresh on day two. "I mean, like I said at the press conference afterwards, because my goal was - I didn't set any goals going to the U.S. Open, and I would think maybe top 10 would be a great result for me, and I actually ended up having a top 5, so nothing to complain".

And chase she will have to do Sunday during the final round.

Texas A&M's Will Gunnell Flips Fans The Double Bird
That one victory came against A&M 21 years ago in Lafayette, when the town partied for days afterward. Some fans have been crying for his resignation for two years.

Sophia Schubert, the US Women's Amateur champion, made her mark playing alongside the professionals with an impressive opening 68, two better than defending champion Chun In-Gee and seven ahead of world No.1 Ryu So Yeon.

On Saturday she endured more misery, finishing 9 over par after two rounds and missing her fifth cut of the season. I mean, maybe I could go a little bit higher, but that was still good.

She went into the last day of play in third place, on seven-under par, two strokes adrift of Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn.

She claimed her third victory on tour, and first in seven years, at the Thornberry Classic at Wisconsin in July, when she admitted she nearly gave the game in 2015 and 2016 following seasons of struggle.

"I forgot about yesterday and just focused on my play today", Park said, acknowledging she was "surprised" the LPGA scrapped Thursday's play.

"It's just nice to know you can still do it at 35 years old and as one of the older players out here". I'm in a good position and I am sure it will happen sometime.

Park had been six over through just five holes in the rain and wind before play was abandoned and all scores wiped.
