3 stay tied for lead at HSBC Women’s Champions



SINGAPORE (AP) — Americans Katie Futcher and Angela Stanford and South Korea’s Jenny Shin shot 1-under 71s on Saturday to stay tied for the lead after three rounds of the $1.4 million HSBC Women’s Champions.

Futcher led almost the entire day, jumping ahead with a birdie on the second hole. But a bogey on 18 — her first of the tournament — allowed Stanford and Shin to regain a share of the lead at 9-under 207.

World No. 1 Yani Tseng jumped up the leaderboard with a 5-under 67 and was three strokes off the lead at Tanah Merah Country Club.

China’s Shanshan Feng shot a 69 and was two shots behind the leaders while South Koreans Jiyai Shin and Na Yeon Choi were tied with Tseng three shots back.
