LPGA: Charley Hull leads by one
Charley Hull of England, in pursuit of her first LPGA victory, shot a six-under par 66 to take the 54-hole lead in the CME Group Tour Championship in Naples, Fla.
Hull is at 13-under par, one stroke ahead of Brittany Lincicome and So Yeon Ryu of South Korea, while Thailand’s Ariya Jutanugarn is in fourth place, two behind, in her bid to win the Race to CME Globe and a $1 million bonus.
Lydia Ko, Jutanugarn’s competition in the Race to CME Globe, followed a second-round 62 with a one-over par 73 that dropped her into a tie for fourth.
Hull, 20, who has one Ladies European Tour victory, had six birdies in a bogey-free round.
