Late birdies give Creamer lead

2/28/2009

American Paula Creamer had three consecutive birdies on the back nine for a 5-under 67 on Saturday and a three-stroke lead heading into the final round of the $1.45 million of the Honda LPGA Thailand

The world's No. 3 player delighted the galleries with birdies on holes Nos. 12, 13 and 14 to finish with a three-round total of 11-under 205, putting her ahead of Lorena Ochoa (68) and former Duke star Brittany Lang (71).

Ochoa, the top-ranked Mexican star making her first start of the season, started with a bogey but then had five birdies to get within striking distance.

Lang led after two bogey-free rounds. She bogeyed the fourth, but was still in contention for her first LPGA Tour win.

Australian Karrie Webb (69) was fourth, a shot ahead of Hee Young Park of South Korea, Japan's Mika Miyazato and American Angela Stanford. Stanford won the season-opening SBS Open on Feb. 14.
