Indian golfer Aditi Ashok remained in the middle of the leaderboard at Kia Classic after rounds of 74-72-71 on the LPGA Tour. Aditi, who has had modest results and shown her quality in patches, would be happy to see the game trending well.

She is at Tied-45th. She found a lot of fairway in the first two rounds and greens in all three, but putting still needs a bit of work, which is bound to come along as she plays more. After scoring 74 in the first round, she had a nice run of birdies between 12th and 14th as she shot 72 and made the cut.

In the third round, she had a colourful card with an eagle, four birdies, three bogeys and a double in her 71. Meanwhile, Inbee Park opened a five-stroke lead in a bid to finally win the Kia Classic.

Runner-up three times in 2010, 2016 and 2019, the Hall of Famer shot a 3-under 69 to reach 12-under 204 at Aviara Golf Club. The 32-year-old South Korean star, Park is making her first LPGA Tour start of the season and she has 20 tour wins with seven majors.

Top-ranked Jin Young Ko, Lexi Thompson and Madelene Sagstrom were 6-under in the final event before the major ANA Inspiration next week in Rancho Mirage. Ko, the ANA winner in April 2019, shot 68.
