Plenty of smiles in forecast for final round of ANA Inspiration

Sung Hyun Park of South Korea watches her putt on the 18th hole during the second round of the LPGA Tour ANA Inspiration golf tournament at Mission Hills Country Club Friday March 30 in Rancho Mirage Calif

Rose Zhang, a 14-year-old from Irvine, CA who won last week's ANA Junior Inspiration to earn the final spot in this week's field, shot rounds of 72-70 to sit in a tie for 34th with two rounds to go.

The 2017 rookie of the year and joint player of the year joined Lindberg at the head of the leaderboard, with the overnight leader having managed a five-under-par round. She has never won an LPGA tournament.

Lindberg is 14-under, three strokes clear of unheralded American Amy Olson, with five golfers another shot back sharing third.

Park had a 74 to fall into a tie for third at 10 under with Inbee Park, Moriya Jutanugarn, Jennifer Song, Jodi Ewart Shadoff and Charley Hull.

Notes: Ryu won a year ago in a playoff over Lexi Thompson, who was penalized four shots with six holes to play in regulation because of a rules violation Saturday - two shots for improperly marking her ball, two shots for the incorrect scorecard.

The 31-year-old Swede shot a 2-under-par 70 on a hot and calm day at Mission Hills in Rancho Mirage (Riverside County), pulling away when playing partner Sung Hyun Park collapsed on the back nine in the LPGA Tour's first major of the season.

So if you're picking a potential victor and you value experience, you might want to go with Inbee Park.

Lindberg is paired with Olson in Sunday's final round. She's also won 19 tournaments in her career - including the Phoenix tour stop earlier this month - including seven majors.

"I don't know if I would say it's a relief", she said.

The 2014 champion rebounded to birdie three of the last four, beginning the run with a downhill 12-footer on the par-four 15th.

That was back in 2003, and Wie played grown-up golf between giggling discourses on Oreo cookies and Krispy Kreme doughnuts. You have to be really straight off the tee. She played in three more tournaments in July and August before taking September off to allow her body time to heal. Minjee Lee also was 7 under after a 64, the best round of the day. Japan's Ayako Uehara is another shot off the pace, while Jessica Korda and current No. 1 Shanshan Feng are tied at 8-under.

They approach golf "more like a game", she said. "I've played a lot of golf in my life, and I just feel like the pieces are kind of falling together".

Sounds so simple, doesn't it?

After Friday's round, Lindberg, her fiance'-caddie Danny and her parents took a gondola ride to the 10,800-foot mark in the mountains, where the temperature is 60 degrees below the 97-degree heat of the desert. Birdies on 10 and 11 followed to move her to 4-under and even after a slip up on the 13th she was unfazed birdieing the next two holes to reach 5-under.

"It all depends on if these putts are going to drop or not", Korda said. "Someone's going to go out there and shoot a low round, so I just need to keep doing what I'm doing".
