Alison Lee of the United States on Saturday reclaimed the top of the leaderboard from fellow American Brittany Lang with a three-stroke lead after the third round of the Korea LPGA Championship.

The world No.44 enters the final round seeking her first win on the LPGA Tour after collecting six birdies and two bogeys to card a four-under 68 for a 13-under-par 203.

Overnight leader Lang was not able to find much momentum on day three, posting two bogeys and two birdies for an even par for 206.

Four strokes back of the lead at 207 was South Korea's Kim In-Kyung who won the Reignwood LPGA Classic in China early this month for her fourth win on the Tour.

Carlota Ciganda of Spain took fourth spot at 208.

Sitting a stroke further back were Taiwan's Candie Kung, South Korean Kim Min-Sun and Cristie Kerr of the United States.
