Taiwanese golfer Hsu Wei-ling (徐薇淩) managed to retain her position at the top of the leaderboard by finishing with a 3-under-par 72 to share the third-round lead at the LPGA Swinging Skirts Taiwan Championship on Saturday.

Playing in front of a home crowd at Ta Shee Golf & Country Club in Taoyuan, the local hope Hsu was tied with American Nelly Korda with a 9-under 207 after the third day of the tournament, which had a total purse of US$2.2 million.

Korda went to tap in after missing her birdie putt at the 18th but her playing partner Hsu told her to wait until she had finished her round so she could relish the moment.

Both players will be aiming to win their first LGPA title in Sunday's final round.

"I think I'll definitely be a little nervous", Korda said of the fourth round.

"Anyone who is in contention on a Sunday will obviously feel those types of feelings". Jin Young Ko, Bronte Law, Megan Khang, Lydia Ko and Jodi Ewart Shadoff make up a group of five players two shots behind at 7 under.

Korda shot a flawless four-under-par 68 in the final round to win her maiden LPGA title by two strokes. "But I played well and I'm extremely happy with the result", Hsu said. "I think it's awesome to see how much they support women's golf out here and just how they support a home player is really great". "So you know, I'm just going to be one of those girls that's fighting for it'".
