Nanna Koerstz Madsen holds the 54-hole lead at the JTBC Classic by three shots at 14-under after carding a 69. Koerstz Madsen has led or co-led twice previously at the 2021 AIG Women’s Open and this year’s Honda LPGA Thailand the latter of which she went on to win.

“The AIG Women’s Open was really a good experience for me. I think after the AIG Women’s Open, I really wanted to put myself in that position again, so I worked very hard to get there again. I do think it’ll be easier going into tomorrow with a lead than it was in Thailand, but still going in with a lead you still want to win, so you still have all excitement in your body that you got control tomorrow.”

The Dane’s three-day total of 202 marks the second lowest of her career, the lowest coming in Thailand at 195. Nanna’s third round 69 featured six birdies, including going back-to-back on 9 and 10, two holes that she was particularly proud of after a 3-over, two-hole stretch. Her round was only marred by a bogey at the 7th and a double bogey at the 8th.

“I played pretty good out there. I had some tee shots that weren’t very good. Only made mistakes on 7 and 8 but bounced back quick from that. It does tell me that I’ve come a long way. Normally, I probably would’ve freaked out after 8. But I knew there were a lot of chances out there on the back nine as well.”

In solo second at 11-under, Na Rin An closed with a triple bogey to round out her 3-under, 69. The Korean eagled the par-4 16th, this week’s Aon Risk Reward Challenge hole, and carded five other birdies on moving day, putting her in reach of that maiden LPGA Tour title.

Three players sit in a tie for third at 10-under: Canada’s Maude-Aimee Leblanc, Rolex Rankings No. 1 Jin Young Ko and 2021 Rolex First-Time winner Pajaree Anannarukarn. The 22-year-old Thai fired a 69 with four birdies and one bogey and will be relying heavily on that past experience in search of her second LPGA Tour title.
