Park, Gal top Titleholders leaderboard



ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Hee Young Park birdied three of the final four holes for a 3-under 69 and a share of the third-round lead with Sandra Gal on Saturday in the LPGA Tour’s season-ending Titleholders.

Gal, the German player who won the Kia Classic in March for her first LPGA Tour title, shot a 71 in tricky wind conditions to match Park at 7 under at Grand Cypress Resort.

Park, from South Korea, is winless in four full seasons on the LPGA Tour.

Suzann Pettersen was a stroke back after a 68, and Paul Creamer (71) was 5 under. Top-ranked Yani Tseng had a 66 — the best round of the day — to match second-round leader Na Yeon Choi (75) at 4 under.

Michelle Wie was even par after a 72.
