PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Defending champion Suzann Pettersen shot her second straight 5-under 67 on Saturday for a share of the third-round lead in the LPGA Tour's Portland Classic.
Trying to match Nancy Lopez's record with her third victory in the event, Pettersen had an eagle, four birdies and a bogey at Columbia Edgewater. The fourth-ranked Norwegian star is winless this season after winning four times last year to push her career total to 14.
"I still feel the low one is out there. Got to go out tomorrow and just try to birdie as many holes as you can," said Pettersen, who birdied Nos. 16 and 17.
