Na Yeon shot a bogey free third round of -7 under par 66 to lead the LPGA Pure Silk Bahamas Classic by just one shot at -15 under par.

Na Yeon reported that a trip to the chiropractor helped her swing;

" I had so many solid shots out there, I missed two greens today. Only two, but I hit a putt from the fringe, so obviously I haven’t chipped the last two rounds. Last two, three weeks I haven’t practiced much, maybe like seven or ten days only, and every day it’s just work out like two hours, and then I went to Dallas for chiropractor just more like take care for my body and then I got great feeling about my swing.”

Lizette Salas is in second place at -14 under par after she also carded a third round of -7 under par 66, saying she was just on it;

“Once I hit the turn, I was just on it and wanted to make as many birdies as I could. You can’t always play perfect and that’s the thing about this game. I was trying to play it as best I could coming down the stretch.”

Tied in third spot are Paula Creamer and Jessica Korda, both ladies on -12 under par, three shots off the lead. Their second shots on the par-5 finishing hole to near tap-in range. Both of them made their putts for Eagle which moved them to -12 under-par overall."

Jessica said it was a different golf course today, club selection was crucial;

“I definitely watch leaderboards; that's nothing new, I just wanted to see kind of what was going on.  I mean, you don't know what you're going to get.  You have beautiful weather and all of a sudden the golf course plays completely differently.  Instead of yesterday I had 152, I hit 9‑iron; today I had 152, I hit 8‑iron.  It plays completely differently.  You're taking different lines.  It's just like a different golf course basically, so it's a lot of getting used to.”

" I heard Paula, from the crowd, the reaction was great, so I knew that she was close. I was like, I want that.  Nothing has fallen in the hole, and I really want something.  So I hit from,  I think we had 196 pin, and I hit 5‑iron, and I hit it really nice, so I can't complain.”

Paula spoke of her roller coaster round, the good and the bad;

“Many things happened today, yes, that’s an understatement. I had a couple bad iron swings out there today.  Obviously the tee shot on the one hole.  But I just didn't play well from there.  You can hit it in the hazard all day and still make a bogey.  There was no need to make a triple. But overall I'm proud of the way I finished with my attitude.  I was unfortunate with the triple, but even at the beginning, three‑putting, this par‑3, just kept on plugging away.  It was a roller coaster. “

Lydia Ko and Michelle Wei have slipped down the board a little, both of them at -10 under par in eighth place.
