Lydia Ko heads into tomorrow's final round of the LPGA Tour's Kingmill Championship in a tie for third after an impressive day.

The 17-year-old world No 3 had to complete her second round today after play was suspended early yesterday.

The Kiwi picked up two further shots as she completed her second round - a three-under 68 - before firing a four-under 67 to move to eight under for the event.

Ko has played 43 holes since her last bogey.

She's in a three way tie for third with Australian Katherine Kirk and American Stacy Lewis, but is five shots behind leader Lizette Salas who sits at 13-under.

Salas leads by three after recording a six-under 65.

Korea's Hee Young Park is alone in second at 10-under.

Ko birdied the first hole today in her third round before stringing together nine straight pars.

She then picked up shots on 11, 14 and 15.

This is Ko's first tournament since winning the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic last month.

Meanwhile, Tim Wilkinson slipped further down the leaderboard at the PGA Tour's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Manawatu's Wilkinson shot a second consecutive one-over 71 to drop to two-under for the tournament.

He sits in a tie for 38th, eight shots behind leaders Louis Oosthuizen and Brendon Todd at 10-under.
