In-Kyung Kim shot a 5-under 67 Friday to take a three-stroke lead, while Michelle Wie dropped into a tie for fourth after three rounds of the Dubai Ladies Masters. Kim, who stands at 202 overall, leads Anna Nordqvist (65) by three shots and Maria Hjorth (67) by four at the Emirates Golf Club. Michelle Wie, who was in second place after Thursday's round, had a 71 and is six shots behind the leader. Wie three-putted the par-5 10th hole for her only bogey. "I did not get any putts in," Wie said. "Hopefully, they will all go in tomorrow." Kim made her only bogey of the day at No. 8. "Even though I am ahead, I have got to play my game," Kim said. "I have to play what the golf course gives me and go out there and have some fun. Nothing is easy, so I better go and have a good sleep." Nordqvist, who turned pro after winning the Ladies European Tour Qualifying School in January this year and won the LPGA Championship, threatened the course record. But a birdie attempt on the 17th fell short and another on the par-5 18th lipped out. "I was a lot more aggressive with my irons," Nordqvist said. "I had my putting going a bit too ... hit a lot of good putts. A couple of them went in, a couple of them did not."
