Dane Nanna Koerstz Madsen leads a tightly packed leaderboard at the Honda LPGA Thailand after carding a bogey-free 66 on Saturday to reach 21-under overall.

She set a new tournament 54-hole record breaking the previous 20-under, set by Jessica Korda in her 2018 victory. The 195 total also sets a new personal best, bettering the 203 she has shot twice previously.

“I’m happy with the round. I didn’t make that many mistakes. Hit a lot of greens. Would have liked to make a couple more putts or at least get it to the hole, but I’m happy with the round overall.”

Koerstz Madsen, who has won three times on the Epson Tour, takes a lead into the final round for the second time in her LPGA career. She was tied for the lead on the final hole of the 2021 AIG Women’s Open but closed with a disappointing double bogey to drop into a tie for fifth. To finally get a win and become the first Danish winner on the LPGA Tour would mean everything.

“It would be amazing winning a first LPGA event,” said Koerstz Madsen. “That’s what I play for, so that would be just awesome.”

China’s Xiyu Lin and France’s Celine Boutier are tied for second, one stroke behind. Like Koerstz Madsen, Lin is looking for the first win of her LPGA Tour career and could join Shanshan Feng as the only Tour winners from the People’s Republic of China. She carded six birdies on Saturday, including four consecutive on holes 12-15.

“Front nine was pretty average, and then back nine I was just like keep telling myself to be patient, it’s going to come,” said Lin. “It was a good little row, like four birdies in a row, and then also nice to finish with another birdie. So I think I put myself in a really good position for tomorrow.”

Should Boutier win her third LPGA Tour title, she would become the all-time winningest player from France.

Mexico’s Gaby Lopez, Canadian Brooke Henderson and Japan’s Nasa Hataoka are tied for fourth at 18-under.

Play was suspended at 2:27 p.m. due to lightning in the area and resumed at 3:54 p.m. All players finished their rounds.
