INCHEON, South Korea (AFP) - Alison Lee of the United States on Saturday reclaimed the top of the leader board from fellow American golfer Brittany Lang, with a three-stroke lead after the third round of the Korea LPGA Championship.

The world No. 44 enters the final round seeking her first win on the LPGA Tour, after collecting six birdies and two bogeys to card a four-under 68 for a 13-under 203.

Overnight leader Lang was not able to find much momentum on day three, posting two bogeys and two birdies for an even-par round and 206 total.

Four strokes back of the lead at 207 was South Korea's Kim In Kyung (69), who won the Reignwood LPGA Classic in China early this month for her fourth win on the Tour.

Carlota Ciganda (69) of Spain sits in fourth spot at 208.

A stroke further back were Chinese Taipei's Candie Kung (69), South Korean Kim Min Sun (70) and Cristie Kerr (72) of the United States.
