Minjee Lee starts today the last round of the Honda LPGA Thailand-tournament with a big chance to win her fifth victory victory.

Lee made a long, curling, downhill birdie putt at the par-five 18th hole on Saturday to regain some of the lead with South Korea Amy Yang at 15-par

The West Australian star, the highest rated golfer in this country and the reigning Greg Norman medalist from 2018, had spent most of the third round with the direct leadership or part of the leadership, heading for a five-under -par 67.

"I feel pretty solid," she said afterwards. "I've done a few extra attempts this week instead of the other two weeks I've played, so that's a good sign, I hit it pretty hard, so that's pretty fun too."

Lee is in seventh place in the world and may be in the top five for the first time if she can win today.

Yang, six-time winner on tour, is an obvious threat, along with ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open winner Nelly Korda, who switched from the pelot on Saturday to a shared fourth place, only three shots back.
