Kim seeks third win of season in China

Shanghai: Windy conditions hit golfers again at China's Blue Bay LPGA event on Saturday, as the previous day's leader Kim Sei-Young shared the top of the board with Candie Kung.

South Korea's Kim is looking to pick up her third win of the season while Kung of Taiwan hopes to earn her first win in seven years, according to a press release from organisers.

American Stacy Lewis was one shot behind the two leaders.

Going into the third round, only five players were under par for the tournament at the par-72 Jian Lake Blue Bay Golf Course but play finished with none.

World number one Lydia Ko improved her performance, moving up in a tie for 20th with a two-under par showing for the day, better than her 47th finish a day earlier.

LPGA tour rookie Hsu Wei-ling was the surprise on Saturday, earning the low round of the day at a 4-under 68 to move into the top ten from 42nd. 

The fourth and final round of the tournament is Sunday.
