EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France (AP) Hyo-Joo Kim of South Korea goes into the final round of the Evian Championship with a one-shot lead over veteran Karrie Webb.

Contenders struggled for form on Saturday in an error-strewn third round, with Kim hitting four bogeys on the front nine before recovering for a 1-over 72. Her remarkable 61 on Thursday was the lowest score in major history.

Webb was somewhat more consistent, with four birdies and three bogeys in a 1-under 70, leaving the 39-year-old with a great chance of an eighth career major.

Mi-Jung Hur of South Korea is two behind Kim at 6 under overall.

Overnight leader Brittany Lincicome of the U.S. dropped four shots off the lead after a 6-over 77, which featured two double bogeys and a triple bogey within the first seven holes.
