NAPLES, Fla. – Cristie Kerr and Ha Na Jang shared the lead going into the final round of the LPGA Tour’s season-ending CME Group Tour Championship, and Lydia Ko remained in control of the biggest year-end awards and a $1 million bonus.

Kerr shot a 4-under 67 on Saturday to match Jang at 13 under at Tiburon Golf Club. Jang had a 69.

Ko and Gerina Piller were tied for third at 11 under. Ko had a 69, and Piller shot 67.

Ko is trying to take the $1 million Race to the CME Globe bonus for the second consecutive year. A win also would lock up the world No. 1 ranking to end the year, along with player of the year honours and the money title.

Canada’s Brooke Henderson sits T29 at 3-under, while fellow Canadian Alena Sharp is at even par in a tie for 43rd.
