Anna Nordqvist sneaked a shot ahead of Scotland's Catriona Matthew to take the lead at the Airbus LPGA Classic in Mobile, Alabama, going into the final round.

The Swede moved to 16-under par overall after four back-to-back birdies on the front nine, and six overall, helped her card 66 in the third round on Saturday.

By contrast Matthew, who has led after both of the previous two rounds, struggled on the opening nine holes.

The 44-year-old hit three bogeys before recovering with five birdies of her own.


Stacy Lewis' third round 66 kept her in contention, two shots behind Nordqvist in third, while England's Charley Hull leads a three-strong pack one shot further back.

The 18-year-old had been in second place going into the third round, but she finished on 71 for the day, with two birdies and a bogey, to sit three shots behind.

She is joined by Americans Michelle Wie and Jessica Korda after they carded 66 and 69 respectively.

England's Jodi Ewart Shadoff hit 68 to go four shots off the lead, with South Korean trio Ryu So-yeon, Ji Eun-hee and Jenny Shin also on 12-under par overall.
