A top 10 finish is Lydia Ko's main priority in tomorrow's final round of the women's champions event in Singapore.

Ko is nine shots behind Australian 54-hole leader Karrie Webb after carding a disappointing one-over par 73 at Sentosa Golf Club today, leaving Ko in a tie for 16th.

Bogeys on the fifth, sixth 10th and 16th holes made life difficult for the young Kiwi who started the day in a tie for 13th after rounds of 73 and 69.

Webb, who has posted rounds of 66, 69 and 70 leads by one stroke over American Angela Stanford with 18 holes to play.

The next nearest challengers are Spain's Azahara Munoz and Chinese Taipei's Teresa Lu on eight-under par.
