In Gee Chun seeks 72-hole scoring record for a major

EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France -- South Korean golfer In Gee Chun knows she's in sight of her second major -- and a record -- after extending her lead to four shots after the third round of the Evian Championship on Saturday.

Chun, the 2015 U.S. Women's Open champion, carded a 6-under 65 in the rain to go to 19-under overall at Evian Resort. She had six birdies and an eagle in a round blemished only by a double bogey on the ninth hole.

Henrik Stenson and Jason Day own the major record for lowest ever 72-hole score in a major -- men and women -- at 20 under, while the women's record of 19 under is shared by four players.

"My game plan for tomorrow is not to think about winning," Chun said. "Because it puts too much pressure on me."

Her countrywoman Sung Hyun Park (67) was at 15 under. Shanshan Feng (69), China's only major winner, is at 13 under.

"I just want to enjoy everything," Chun said.

Her eagle on the 15th was a 35-yard chip from the back of the green that rolled up and across the green with perfect weighting, prompting her to raise her arm triumphantly.

Chun was smiling again after the next hole, another birdie, moved her to 19 under.

Feng, who started slowly with four pars and a bogey on five, got her game together too late, drifting six shots behind after shooting a 69.

South Korean So Yeon Ryu, who has been remarkably consistent with only one bogey in three rounds -- on her 10th hole on Saturday -- was seven shots behind Chun in fourth place.

A good day for South Koreans was made even better with I.K. Kim making 64, including eight birdies and a bogey, to rise to fifth. American veteran Angela Stanford was 10 shots off the lead in sixth place.

Defending champion Lydia Ko of New Zealand had a terrible day, making six bogeys in a 4-over 75, and was 19 shots behind Chun in a tie for 36th.

More rain was forecast for Sunday's final round, and tee times were moved forward by a couple of hours.
