BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) Madelene Sagstrom shot a 5-under 67 on Saturday in the Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio to take a two-stroke lead into the final round.

Seeking her first LPGA Tour victory, Sagstrom birdied four of the first eight holes and also birdied the par-4 15th in a bogey-free round. The 27-year-old Swede hit all 18 greens in regulation.

"I was in this situation a few times on Symetra, and it's just to keep the same game plan," said Sagstrom, a three-time winner on the Symetra Tour in 2016. "Don't go out and change anything, just keep doing what you're doing, because you're obviously doing something right if you're on top of the leaderboard."
