South Korea’s Ryu Hae-ran holds a narrow advantage over history-chasing Nelly Korda following round three of the LPGA Chevron Championship in Texas.

Ryu leads on 11 under heading into the final day, with American Korda, who is bidding to equal the LPGA record of five victories in five consecutive starts, one shot behind.

Canada’s Brooke Henderson is also tied for second on 10 under.

Round three concluded early on Sunday after storms delayed play on Saturday.

Thailand’s Atthaya Thitikul led Korda and Henderson, who played a stellar round of eight under through her first 17 holes, by one shot on 11 under when play was stopped in the first major of the year.

But Thitikul now sits tied-third at eight under, along with South Korea’s Im Jin-hee and Sweden’s Maja Stark.

Success for 25-year-old Korda would see her join Nancy Lopez (1978) and Annika Sorenstam (2005) as the only players to achieve the feat of winning five consecutive LPGA events.

Scotland’s Gemma Dryburgh and England’s Jodi Shadoff lead the British contingent on four under, with English amateur Lottie Woad, who won the Augusta National Women’s Amateur earlier this month, a shot further back.

England’s Georgia Hall and Charley Hull are one under.
