HARRISON, N.Y. -- Inbee Park has a chance to put her name alongside some of the all-time greats in women's golf on Sunday.
Park, currently the No. 2-ranked player in the world, will start the final round of the KPMG Women's PGA Championship at Westchester Country Club with a two-shot lead over Sei Young Kim after firing a tournament-best, 7-under 66 on Saturday to move to 14-under 205.
The 26-year-old Park, who already has two wins this season, was flawless in the third round. She shot a 33 on the front and matched it on the back nine.
Park was also the beneficiary of a late stumble by Kim.
Kim three-putted on the par-5 18th hole for a costly bogey after nearly reaching the green in two shots.
"I thought it was a tie," Park said. "But I just had an interview with NBC and they said two-shot lead and I was surprised, because it was a reachable par 5 on the last hole and I thought she would probably definitely make a birdie or a par. Yeah, it was a surprise, but it always helps having an extra couple shots going into tomorrow, so I'm happy."
A win on Sunday would be Park's sixth major overall and third consecutive KPMG Women's PGA Championship triumph. Annika Sorenstam is the only player in tournament history to win three in a row.
A victory would also put Park alongside Se Ri Pak, Annika Sorenstam, Patty Sheehan, Nancy Lopez, Kathy Whitworth and Mickey Wright as the only players to win this tournament at least three times. Wright is the only player to win it four times.
"I don't know how to describe in words how I'm going to feel tomorrow if I ended up winning," said Park, who won three majors in a row in 2013. "But definitely it will feel very good. Obviously I've done something three times before; I won three majors in a row before. I'm just trying to give myself the confidence that I can do it, do another three-time tomorrow. The way I've been playing, I've really been happy with ball-striking, and today was the best putting day yet. So I mean, it definitely gives me a lot of motivation and confidence going into tomorrow."
