Cinderella Redux? Shi Hyun Ahn in Position for 1st Professional Win on KLPGA since 2004

Shi Hyun Ahn fired a 69 today to move to -11 and take a 1-shot lead on Min Young Lee and a 2-shot lead on Hyo Joo Kim and Soo Jin Yang into the final round of the Lotte Mart Women's Open.  The golfer formerly nicknamed "Cinderella" has a great chance to win for the 1st time on the KLPGA since 2004.  For more on her back story, see HappyFan's 2014 KLPGA Primer and the Florida Masochist's overview of her 2010 LPGA cheating scandal.  The 2004 LPGA Rookie of the Year has had a pretty tough time of it ever since leaving the States, so let's see if getting her 3rd career KLPGA victory can help her turn things around!

[Update 1 (4/13/14, 8:30 am):  Alas, the Cinderella story Ahn's fans were hoping for did not come true today, as Min Young Lee outplayed her to win by 2.  Still, Ahn finished T2 and is off to a great start since her comeback started late last season.]
