WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) Ariya Jutanugarn moved into position for her second straight LPGA Tour victory Saturday, shooting a bogey-free 6-under 65 to take the third-round lead in the Kingsmill Championship.

The 20-year-old Jutanugarn had three birdies in a four-hole stretch on the front nine on the soggy River Course and birdied three of the last six. She's coming off a victory two weeks ago in Alabama that made her the first Thai winner in LPGA Tour history.

Jutanugarn had a 10-under 203 total.

Second-round leader So Yeon Ryu bogeyed the final hole to drop a stroke back along with fellow South Korean player In Gee Chun and Thailand's Pornanong Phatlum.

Ranked 11th in the world but sixth in the race for the four spots on South Korea's Olympic team, Ryu shot a 69.

Chun had a 62 to tie the course record set by Jiyai Shin in 2012. The U.S. Women's Open champion is eighth in the world and fourth in the South Korean Olympic race.

Phatlum shot a 65.
