In Gee Chun made a bold run at the top of the leaderboard in round 3, shooting a 66 to move to 12 under.
But it was still not enough, as second round leader Min Sung Ha responded with a 65 to establish a four shot lead at 16 under total. Ha's now shot 69-66-65 as she looks for career win #1.

Mommie Jin Joo Hong shot her own 66 to move to move to a share of second. Also at that level is Min Young Lee, still working on getting her first win since her return from cancer surgery.
One more day: can Ha hold off the stars?

Sorry, Mi So Lim missed the cut... Back to the Dream Tour!
Even though Min Song Ha had a 4 shot lead going into the final round, it should have been a tough task for her to win her first career KLPGA title. After all, she would be playing the final round with the best player on tour, In Gee Chun.
But Ha had relatively little trouble throughout the day. She shot an uneventful 69, her fourth round in the 60s, carding one of the lowest four rounds totals in KLPGA history, a 19 under par. She was never seriously threatened all day.
In Gee tried, but was only able to shoot a 72, which gave her a tie for 4th finish. Jin Joo Hong was the top challenger for a while, but her 13 under total left her 6 shots behind the winner.
Congratulations to Min Song Ha on an impressive victory!
