Mobile, AL (Sports Network) - Chella Choi carded a 6-under 66 on Saturday to grab a 1-shot lead after three rounds of the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic.

Choi, who will go for her first LPGA Tour title on Sunday, ended 54 holes at 17-under-par 199. She broke Stacy Lewis' 54-hole scoring record by three strokes. Lewis set the old mark of 202 last year en route to victory.

Anna Nordqvist also set a record on Saturday as she fired an 11-under 61 for a new course record. That record was a day old as Sydnee Michaels carded a 62 on Friday.

Nordqvist ended three rounds at 16-under-par 200 and she was joined there by second-round leader Jessica Korda, who carded a 3-under 69 in round three.

Karrie Webb, who was paired with Korda on Saturday and will be again on Sunday, also shot 69 to end 54 holes at minus-15.

Jennifer Johnson is alone in fifth at 14-under 202 after a third-round 65 on the Crossings Course, which is part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Magnolia Grove.

Lewis (63) and Michaels (69) share sixth place at minus-13.
