Wei-Ling Hsu, Moriya Jutanugarn share lead at Pure Silk Championship
Smiths Falls, Ont., native Brooke Henderson tied for 27th at 2-under
Wei-Ling Hsu birdied the final hole Saturday for a 6-under 65 and a share of the third-round lead with Moriya Jutanugarn in the LPGA Tour's Pure Silk Championship.
Jutanugarn eagled the par-5 seventh in a 65 to match Hsu at 10-under 203 on Kingsmill Resort's firm and fast River Course.
The 26-year-old Hsu, from Taiwan, is winless on the LPGA Tour. She had five straight birdies on Nos. 3-7.
"I don't really think about this much," Hsu said. "Just try to hit every single shot the place I want to be. And the iron performance those couple hole are really good. Just I put a lot of ball like right next to the pin."

Jutanugarn, also 26, won the 2018 LA Open for her lone title. The Thai player's younger sister, Ariya Jutanugarn, won at Kingsmill in 2016 and 2018.
Jessica Korda was a stroke back, birdieing three of the last four in a 67. She won the season-opening Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions for her sixth tour title.
"Considering I am a past champion, this golf course is playing completely different," Salas said. "I'm focusing on visualizing my shots better and I'm obviously executing them more. Putts are feeling good. I think overall my confidence is coming back."
Giulia Molinaro (63), Ryann O'Toole (66) and Lauren Stephenson (67) were 7 under.
Smiths Falls, Ont., native Brooke Henderson finished the round tied for 27th at two-under, while fellow Canadian Alena Sharp of Hamilton, Ont., sits tied for 35th at one-under.
