Saturday, August 11, 2012
SYLVANIA, Ohio (AP) -- South Koreans Jiyai Shin, I.K. Kim, So Yeon Ryu and Hee Kyung Seo dominated the leaderboard, sharing the top spot at 11-under 202 on Saturday through the third round of the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic.
Two more South Koreans, Inbee Park and Chella Choi, are a shot back along with Japan's Mika Miyazato.
Shin and Kim each shot 5-under 66 for the low rounds of the day, while Ryu had a 67 and Seo a 68.
South Koreans have dominated the LPGA Tour in recent years, but have seldom taken over a tournament like the one at Highland Meadows. In addition to filling the top four spots and six of the top seven, South Korean players had seven of the top 11 positions and 11 of the top 25 through 54 holes.
