PHOENIX (AP) Sei Young Kim stumbled late Saturday afternoon in the JTBC Founders Cup, handing the lead to Eun-Hee Ji and putting Stacy Lewis, Lydia Ko and many others in far better position than they expected.

Three strokes ahead after an eagle on the par-4 13th, Kim bogeyed the par-4 16th and par-3 17th and finished with a 2-under 70 to drop into a tie for second with Lewis - a stroke behind Ji.

Ji shot a 65 to reach 18-under 198 at Desert Ridge's Wildfire Golf Club.

Lewis had a 64. The Texan won in 2013 and finished second the last two years. She has nine runner-up finishes in a 43-event victory drought.

Jacqui Concolino was two strokes back after a 68. The top-ranked Ko, Carlota Ciganda and Paula Creamer were another shot behind. Ko and Ciganda shot 64, and Creamer had a 67.
