ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Ariya Jutanugarn made a 15-foot eagle putt on the par-5 18th hole Saturday at Travis Pointe to take a one-stroke lead in the Volvik Championship.

Trying to become the first to win three straight LPGA Tour events since Inbee Park in 2013, the 20-year-old Jutanugarn shot a 1-over 73 to reach 10-under 206. She won three weeks ago in Alabama to become the first Thai winner in tour history and followed with a victory last week in Virginia.

Jessica Korda and Christina Kim were tied for second. Korda had a 70, and Kim shot 72.
