FLORIDA: South Korea’s Na Yeon Choi bounced back from an early bogey to fire a three-under par 69 on Saturday and seize a one-stroke, third-round lead at the LPGA’s season-ending titleholders. Choi, the reigning US Women’s Open champion, moved atop the leaderboard early Saturday after overnight leader Ai Miyazato of Japan made a double-bogey on the par-five second hole. Choi three-putted the third for a bogey, but that was the only blemish on a card that included four birdies and gave her a 54-hole total of 12-under 204 at TwinEagles. “I’m just happy I have to play just 18 more holes and finish this year,” said Choi. “I feel great right now and I have a lot of confidence.”
