Yani Tseng takes Safeway Classic lead
By NICK DASCHEL
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Yani Tseng moved into position to end a long victory drought, shooting a 9-under 63 on Saturday to take a three-stroke lead into the final round of the Safeway Classic.
Tseng, the 24-year-old Taiwanese star who has 15 LPGA Tour titles and had a 109-week run at No. 1 in the world ranking, is winless in 36 events since the Kia Classic in March 2012. She has tumbled to No. 15 in the world and missed cuts in the four of her last five tournaments.
Tseng had 11 birdies and two bogeys Saturday to reach 18 under at Columbia Edgewater.
Norway's Suzann Pettersen, the 2011 tournament winner at Pumpkin Ridge, was tied for second with Thailand's Pornanong Phatlum. Pettersen had a 70, and Phatlum, the leader after each of the first two rounds, shot 71.
