The third round at the LPGA Drive On Championship is complete, and former Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings No. 1 Nelly Korda leads the way, taking a 4-shot lead into the final 18 holes at Bradenton Country Club. Korda, a 2016 Epson Tour graduate and Bradenton native, sits in front of Ayaka Furue, Megan Khang and Lydia Ko, who are tied for second at 9-under overall.
