Honda LPGA Thailand Saturday: Anna Nordqvist Leads Inbee Park and Michelle Wie by 4

Catriona Matthew doubled the 18th on moving day at the Honda LPGA Thailand and still fired the low round of the week, a 7-birdie-plus-eagle 65, while former world #1 Ya Ni Tseng eased her way to a smooth bogey-free 66 and current #1 Inbee Park birdied 4 holes in a row as she started the back on her way to a 6-birdie 67, but 1st- and 2nd-round leader Anna Nordqvist made their heroics virtually moot as she fired a bogey-free 31 on the back, sparked by an eagle on the par-5 10th, to take a 4-shot lead into the final round.  With Michelle Wie sporting a bogey-free 69 to join Park at -7, Julieta Granada at -6 after a 71, Tseng, Cristie Kerr (bogey-free 68), Lexi Thompson, and Lydia Ko at -5, and Matthew and 9 other golfers at -4, they're all going to need some help from Nordqvist to get to the winner's circle tomorrow.
