Morgan Pressel keeps lead in ShopRite LPGA Classic

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) Morgan Pressel kept her patience Saturday despite a steady breeze and greens that grew bumpy in the afternoon, shooting a 2-under 69 to maintain a one-stroke lead in the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

Pressel had three birdies and a bogey to reach 7-under 135 on Stockton Seaview's Bay Course. The 27-year-old American won the last of her two LPGA Tour victories in 2008.

Sweden's Anna Nordqvist was second. She birdied the last three holes for a 69.

Gerina Piller, Kelly Shon, Pernilla Lindberg, Catriona Matthew and Christel Boeljon were tied for third at 4 under. Shon had a 68, and Piller, Lindberg, Matthew and Boeljon shot 70.
