Christine Song leads LPGA Tour Q-school by four

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Christine Song shot an even-par 72 on Saturday on LPGA International's Legends Course to take a four-stroke lead into the final round of the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament.

The 20-year-old Song, from Fullerton, Calif., had a 10-under 278 total.

``I wasn't hitting it very well, but fortunately, my chipping and putting were good,'' Song said. ``We will play the Champions Course tomorrow and I like that course better because it's more wide open.''

The top 40 and ties will receive LPGA Tour membership, with the top 20 earning full status.

Junthima Gulyanamitta, the 23-year-old former Purdue player from Thailand, was second after a 68 on the Champions Course. Her sister, former LPGA Tour member Russy Gulyanamitta, is caddying for her.

``I just play and I have no idea what's going on,'' Gulyanamitta said. ``I'm not trying to beat everybody. I'm just doing what I need to do to get my LPGA card.''

Jennie Lee, from Henderson. Nev., was third at 4 under after a 73 on the Legends Course.

``I had too many bogeys today and I putted poorly,'' Lee said. ``If you are on the green, you shouldn't be three-putting, and I had three of them today.''

Seventy-six players made the 72-hole cut at 12-over 300.
