Hyo Joo Kim leads at LPGA's Marathon Classic

SYLVANIA, Ohio — Hyo Joo Kim had five birdies in a six-hole stretch and shot 7-under 64 Saturday at Highland Meadows to open a three-stroke lead in the LPGA Tour's Marathon Classic.

"I hit good drives, good tee shots and iron shots," said Kim, who was at 15-under 198. "I managed to get up-and-down, and I made good putts. It was good."

The South Korean had shares of the lead the first two days.

Top-ranked Lydia Ko (67) and Alison Lee (66), a 21-year-old American who has struggled in her second season on the tour while attending classes at UCLA, were tied for second. Stacy Lewis (65) and Ariya Jutanugarn (66) were 11 under.

PGA: Jhonattan Vegas' lead was down to three when rain forced suspension of third-round play in the Barbasol Championship at Opelika, Ala. Six shots ahead after a course-record 11-under 60 Friday, Vegas was 1 over for the round and 16 under overall playing the par-4 14th when play was stopped. David Toms and Aaron Baddeley were 13 under. Toms was 4 under for the day with four holes left. Baddeley finished his round with 7-under 64.
