Round 3: Bo Kyung Kim is Third Leader in Three Days
The amateur Hye Jin Choi held onto the lead most of Saturday, but a late struggle knocked her down to a 76 and 6 under total.
The leader is now Bo Kyung Kim, who shot a 68 to move to 10 under and a three shot margin over Jae Eun Jung, HJ Choi and Hye Youn Kim.

Hyo Joo Kim and In Gee Chun continue to play so-so golf and are tied at 1 over in 21st place.
Rookie Gyeol Park is also tied for 21st
One more round!

It got close for a while, but Bo Kyung Kim held on, shot a 73 and claimed a three shot win over three players.
Among those tied for second were Hye Youn Kim, a multiple KLPGA winner who has not gotten a trophy since early in 2013. She'll have to wait until another day.
Hyo Joo Kim dropped out due to 'exhaustion' from playing too many golf events in too many time zones. Hopefully her sponsor will understand and give her a break when it comes to playing the LPGA event next week in Hawaii; Lotte sponsors that one, too.
Terrible day for rookie Gyeol Park. She shot a 78.
In Gee Chun wound up t-19th after a 73 on Sunday.
Congrats to Bo Kyung Kim!
