Suzann Pettersen maintains lead in Hawaii

KAPOLEI, Hawaii — Suzann Pettersen shot a 4-under 68 on Friday at wind-swept Ko Olina to maintain a one-stroke lead after the third round of the LPGA Lotte Championship.

The 32-year-old Norwegian, a 10-time LPGA Tour winner ranked sixth in the world, had a 14-under 202 total.

South Korea's Hee Kyung Seo was second after a 66. She made three straight birdies on the back nine for a share of the lead, but dropped back with a bogey on the par-4 18th.

Defending champion Ai Miyazato was third at 11 under after a 70.

Pettersen, a stroke ahead of Miyazato entering the round, birdied the first three holes and got to 14 under with a birdie on the par-4 seventh. The European Solheim Cup star bogeyed the par-3 eighth, and got the stroke back with a birdie on the par-5 14th.
