American Nelly Korda has established a three-shot lead heading into the final round of the 2018 ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open and equal best round of the day 67 allowing her to move clear of the share of the lead she had through 36 holes.

Korda, whose sister Jessica won this event seven years ago, produced an equal best round of the day 67 to lead over 2015 champion Haru Nomura of Japan with Korea’s Jeongeun Lee6, England’s Jodie Ewart Shadoff and joint 36-hole leader Wei Ling Hsu of Taiwan sharing 3rd place four shots from the lead.

Hannah Green in 9th place and six from the lead heads the Australians while Sarah Kemp is another shot back in 13th place.

Korda is the leading world ranked player amongst the top 17 players on the leaderboard and as such appears the player to beat tomorrow in more ways than one.
