NAPLES, Fla. (AP) – Julieta Granada has a one-shot lead going into the final round of the CME Group Tour Championship. Just as close is a four-player race for $1 million.

Granada had four birdies in her round of 2-under 70. Morgan Pressel and Carlota Ciganda of Spain each made big putts on the 18th hole to stay one shot behind. Pressel made a 5-foot birdie putt for a 70. Ciganda made an 8-foot putt for par and a 71.

The Race to CME Globe is razor thin among Stacy Lewis, Lydia Ko, So Yeon Ryu and Michelle Wie. All are among the top five in the standings. Ko (68) and Ryu (70) were three shots out of the lead. Wie had a 72 and was four shots back. Lewis was six behind.
