LPGA: Webb finishes strong, holds 1-shot lead at HSBC Champions
SINGAPORE — Karrie Webb broke out of a slump with three key birdies on the back nine Saturday to hold onto a one-stroke lead after the third round of the HSBC Women’s Champions.
Webb, the 2011 champion, has led every round this week. She shot a 70 to move to 11-under 205 overall.
The veteran Australian will play against another former champion in the lead group on Sunday – 2012 winner Angela Stanford. The American matched Webb birdie-for-birdie over the final five holes to shoot a 69.
Spain’s Azahara Munoz fired an eagle and four birdies for a 5-under 67, the low round of the day, to surge into a third-place tie with Taiwan’s Teresa Lu at 8-under 208.
