CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif.>>Three bogeys interrupted a golf round that could have put a dent in Michelle Wie’s deficit today at the Kia Classic.

Wie, from Honolulu, fired 2-under-par 71 in the third round at Industry Hills Golf Club. She sank a 20-footer for her fifth birdie on the final hole. That pulled her into a tie for eighth with three others at 5-under 214.

They trail leader Jiyai Shin by 10 shots going into tomorrow’s final round. It would have been more, but Shin hit her drive into the water on the final hole and took bogey to shoot 70. Sandra Gal (70) is one shot back while everyone else is at least six back.

The rain-delayed second round was concluded this morning and the players started the third round just before noon local time. Shin led Gal by a shot at the halfway point while Wie was nine shots back. 

The cut came at 2 over with 71 players advancing to the final two rounds.
