Lindberg leads by three

Pernilla Lindberg reacts to a missed birdie putt on the fifth holde during the final round of the LPGA Tour ANA Inspiration golf tournament at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage Calif. Sunday

With AP Photos.Pernilla Lindberg took advantage of playing partner Sung Hyun Park's late collapse to take the ANA Inspiration lead.

At 14 under, Lindberg holds a three-stroke lead over American Amy Olson in second place. "I've talked to a couple of them, and they said, 'If it goes in the hazard, it goes in the hazard'". "I do hate getting wet, but I won't let that stop me if I have to". "Someone's going to go out there and shoot a low round, so I just need to keep doing what I'm doing".

"I look forward to this event every year", she said earlier this week as she prepared to seek her second major championship. "I just struggled on the greens".

Among the other Japanese players, 19-year-old Nasa Hataoka is tied for 32nd at 3 under following her round of 70, while Ai Suzuki, the money leader on the Japan LPGA tour last season, is 9 over for the tournament after shooting 80.

Park and Lindberg topped the leaderboard at a tournament-record 12-under 132, three strokes ahead of third-place Jessica Korda after two rounds in hot and calm conditions at Mission Hills.

The group was then put on the clock for slow play, and Park dropped five strokes in the next five holes.

Self-coached Park said she had not even been aware of her score.

Six players are four shots back, the most formidable being seven-time major champion Inbee Park (67) and the reigning U.S. Women's Open champ, Sung Hyun Park (74).

"There were a bunch of fairways that I (missed), so that was something that I am disappointed in my shots", Park said. She holed out for eagle from 100 yards on the par-4 15th to cap the run. She broke the tournament 54-hole mark at 14-under 202.

For Lindberg, who has had a share of the lead each of the first three days, it's still kind of wondrous.

And neither have Moriya Jutanugarn (66 Saturday), Jennifer Song (68) and Jodi Ewart Shadoff (69), all at 10 under.

The 42-year-old English veteran made the quarterfinals at last week's Dell Technologies Match Play to improve his world ranking to 51st - just missing the cutoff to move into the top 50 and earn an invitation to Augusta National, where he has never missed the cut in a dozen appearances. She finished out her four birdie, two bogey round with a 4-footer for birdie on the final hole.

"I know she's going to make birdies", said Lindberg, a former All-American at Oklahoma State.

"My putter obviously saved me a few times", Lindberg said. On Friday, she made back-to-back bogeys twice, once on the front and again on the back nine, and required an additional five putts.

"You have to learn to win on every level", Olson said.

Korda birdied five of the last 10 holes in a 68 to get to nine under.

Valenzuela was one of four amateurs to make the cut, with Rose Zhang (70), Atthaya Thitikul (71), Lilia Vu (70) also advancing. Minjee Lee of Australia, who started the day tied for 63rd, ended it tied for 12th after a 64. "So, I'm really excited about that".

Lexi Thompson was tied for 17th at 6 under after a 70. She won in 2011 at Mission Hills and lost a playoff to Brittany Lincicome in 2015.

Fighting dizziness caused by a virus, Wie followed her opening 75 with a bogey-free 67 to get to two under.
