Tseng vaults into Safeway lead

The Sports NetworkAugust 30, 2013 

Former world No. 1 Yani Tseng looks to be breaking out of her prolonged slump. She fired a 9-under 63 on Saturday to move three strokes clear of the field through 54 holes of the Safeway Classic.

Tseng, whose last tour win was last March at the Kia Classic, finished three rounds at 18-under-par 198. Her total of 198 set a new tournament record by one stroke.

Annika Sorenstam set the old mark of 199 in 2002, when the event was a three- round tournament.

Suzann Pettersen (70) and Pornanong Phatlum (71) share second place at 15- under-par 201.

World No. 2 Stacy Lewis fired a 65 to move into a tie for fourth at minus-14. She was joined there by Morgan Pressel (65), Anna Nordqvist (63) and Lizette Salas (68) at Columbia Edgewater Country Club.
