PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) South Korea's Mi Jung Hur birdied four for the last eight holes Saturday for a 5-under 67 and a share of the lead with South Africa's Paula Reto in the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic.

Reto, the second-round leader, birdied three of the final five holes for a 70 to match Hur at 15-under 201 on Capitol Hill's links-style Senator layout.

Hur won her lone LPGA Tour title in 2009, and Reto is winless in her rookie season. Reto started playing golf in 2005 when she moved to Florida with her family.

Top-ranked Stacy Lewis and Kris Tamulis were tied for third at 11 under. Lewis, the 2012 winner in the event dropped from the schedule last year after losing its title sponsor, had a 70. Tamulis shot 65.
