Luxury on the 18th Green of the Kraft Nabisco Championship

RANCHO MIRAGE —   ( It seems that not even Mother Nature can defeat Yani Tseng today. But she did at least slow Tseng down a little Saturday.

Playing her entire round in winds that approached 30 mph and filled the desert air with dust, Tseng still managed a roller-coaster 2-under 70 in the third round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship. But the wind did slow Tseng’s scoring pace enough that Sweden’s Karin Sjodin was able to tie Tseng through 54 holes of the LPGA’s first major championship of the year.

“I just hit lots of good shots today, but on the back nine I think my emotions and I think I kind of little thinking too much, wasn’t trusting as much as I do on the front nine,” Tseng said.

Here are the current standings from the Golf Channel.
