Korda takes 1-shot lead in Shanghai

SHANGHAI (AP) Jessica Korda shot a 6-under 66 in the third round, with eight birdies and two bogeys, to take a one-shot lead at the Buick LPGA Shanghai on Saturday.

"I've been struggling a little bit with my swing, so I've been working on it every day. It's slowly starting to kind of take its groove," the 26-year-old American said. "And then just making some putts."

Korda, who has a 15-under total of 201, is making her first start since the Solheim Cup, where she went 3-0-1 last month in Scotland in the United States' loss to Europe. She has three LPGA Tour victories in Asia.
