SINGAPORE - World No. 1 golfer Feng Shanshan had a blemish-free Saturday (Feb 24) at the Honda LPGA Thailand event in Chonburi, producing four birdies for a four-under 68.

The 28-year-old Chinese has an 11-under total of 205 after the third round, and is joint ninth.

She is nine strokes behind leader Jessica Korda. The American shot a 68 at the Siam Country Club and is four strokes ahead of nearest rival Moriya Jutanugarn (65) of Thailand.

The Honda LPGA Thailand, which features the world's top golfers, is the last tournament before next week's HSBC Women's World Championship in Singapore.

Ahead of her arrival in the Republic to demonstrate her golfing prowess, Feng sent a video greeting to her fans here.

She began her message by wishing fans a happy Chinese New Year in Mandarin and English before adding: "Hello everyone, I'm Shanshan Feng. I will be in Singapore soon. So please come and support me at the HSBC Women's World Championship."

This year's tournament will take place on March 1-4 at the Sentosa Golf Club's New Tanjong Course.
