Danielle Kang and Chella Choi Tied in Women's Championship

The United States' Danielle Kang and South Korea's Chella Choi are tied for the lead on 10-under-par following the third round of the Women's PGA Championships at Olympia Fields Country Club in IL. Her biggest hurdle could well be co-leader Sei Young Kim, the LPGA Tour's 2015 Rookie of the Year and already a six-time victor.

South Korea's Amy Yang, seeking her first major victory after 15 top-10 finishes without one, birdied the par-5 18th hole Friday morning to grab a one-stroke lead after round one of the Women's PGA Championship.

The 19-year-old from Smiths Falls would like to wrap up a successful defence of her KPMG Women's PGA Championship on Sunday, but to do that, she will have to come from behind at Olympia Fields Country Club like she did last year at Sahalee in the Pacific Northwest.

Lydia Ko shot 68 to put herself back in contention at 4 under.

Kang, the U.S. Women's Amateur champion in 2010-11, conceded she didn't have a game plan after her last practice round at Olympia Fields Country Club, one of several venues that previously hosted men's majors now being tested by the women. "So I called my brother, Alex, of course".

As we've seen with relatively low scores the first three days, Henderson said this is a course where you "need to play aggressive" anyway. "He said 'just go win it, '" Kang said.

Choi has had her father, Ji Yeong, on the bag for much of her professional career but he made the decision to retire recently although has returned at Choi's request. Stacy Lewis (Razorbacks) shot a 4-under 67 and is 1 under after two rounds.

Alexander Bjork shot a 1-under 70 to share the lead with former Oklahoma State standout Peter Uihlein at 8 under after a hard third round of the French Open in Guyancourt, France. It's very biggest for me, but I'm ready for final round, so I practiced a lot and I'm training a lot, and mental training, too.

The Turkish government is concerned that the USA arms and equipment given to the YPG will end up in the hands of the PKK . Navy F/A-18E Super Hornet shot down a Syrian Sukhoi Su-22 bomber that attacked U.S. -backed rebel forces.

Otaegui shot a 5-under 66 after rolling in six birdies on the Golf National course that will stage the Ryder Cup next year.

The 36-hole total of 129 was one stroke better than the record set by Michael Allen in 2013 in Omaha, Nebraska.

"It's definitely as tough as advertised", he said.

That changed two weeks ago at the Meijer LPGA Classic, when Henderson collected her fourth LPGA title. That's not necessarily always the case. I kept giving myself birdie opportunities.

Yang was 2 over for the round after bogeys at No. 3 and 12 before closing with birdies on No. 16 and 18 for a par 71.

The former University of Arkansas player won the 2015 Memorial for his lone PGA Tour title.

The uphill 17th has played 208, 212 and 213 yards in the first three rounds, right into a whipping wind.

Daniel Summerhays shot 68 and was alone in third, four shots back.
