Morgan Pressel leads Evian Masters after 3 rounds; American closes with eagle for 2-shot lead

Morgan Pressel is in front by two strokes after three rounds of the Evian Masters.

The American eagled the final hole Saturday in a round of 5-under 67 to move to 11 under par. She is followed by South Koreans Jiyai Shin and Jeong Jang.

Pressel had been three strokes off the lead after shooting a 72 Friday. But she responded the next day with four birdies and her closing eagle.

Shin was briefly ranked No. 1 following Lorena Ochoa's retirement this year. She had five birdies and a bogey in a round of 68. Jang shot a 70.

Second-round leader Mika Miyazato had a 74. She fell four strokes behind Pressel after a round marked by five bogeys, including a stretch of three in a row.
