Sung Hyun Park falls into 4-way tie for LPGA lead


ONEIDA, Wis. — A late slip saw Sung Hyun Park fall into a four-way tie for the lead going into the final round of the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic.

Park, who returned to No. 1 in the world after winning last weekend in Arkansas, made double-bogey on the par-5 15th at the Thornberry Creek of Oneida course on Saturday.

She missed a 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole and, after shooting a 3-under-par 69, remained tied for the lead with Shanshan Feng (65), Tiffany Joh (66), and Ariya Jutanugarn (67).

They were at 20-under 196.

Yealimi Noh, the 17-year-old who got into the event through Monday qualifying, played in the final group with Park and matched her with a 69.
