LEONA MAGUIRE AND Stephanie Meadow have slipped down the leaderboard after the third round of the LPGA Kia Classic

LPGA Hall of Famer Park In-bee of South Korea fired a three-under par 69 and stretched her lead to five strokes.

Park, a seven-time major champion seeking her 21st career LPGA title, stood on 12-under 204 after 36 holes at Aviara, north of San Diego.

“I think it’s just going to be the same game plan that I have done for last three days, and hopefully things work out just exactly the same as what we have done for three days,” Park said. “Just trying to hit a lot of fairways and greens and hopefully the putts will fall.”

The Irish pair are 12 shots behind the leader. Maguire carded a 70 yesterday while Meadow shot 73, leaving them even for the tournament.
