HARRISON, N.Y. - Two-time defending champion Inbee Park shot a 7-under 66 on Saturday to overtake fellow South Korean Sei Young Kim for the lead after three rounds of the KPMG Women's PGA championship.

Kim, a rookie who came into the round with a one-stroke lead, shot a 69. The two had battled all afternoon and went into the final hole tied at 13-under par. But Park made her seventh birdie of the day on 18, and Kim missed a 4-foot putt for par.

Suzann Pettersen and 17-year-old Canadian sensation Brooke Henderson each shot a 71. They ended tied with Hall of Famer Karrie Webb for third place, six strokes back.

Webb was in second place to start the day, but had to overcome bogeys on her first two holes to shoot a 72.
