DALY CITY, Calif. - Seung-Yul Noh became the first player to complete 54 holes at the TPC Louisiana without a bogey and strung together three birdies late in his round Saturday to surge two strokes ahead of Keegan Bradley atop the Zurich Classic leaderboard.

Noh shot a 7-under 65 to reach 18-under 198. From South Korea, he has been playing with yellow and blue ribbons affixed to his cap to honour victims of the fatal ferry accident in the waters off of his home country.

Bradley, who began the day tied for seventh at 9 under, pulled into a tie with Noh for first on No. 15 with his seventh birdie of the day. Then, Noh, who was tied for third at 11 under after two rounds, made birdie putts of 13 feet on 14 and 10 feet on 15 before hitting a 112-yard approach shot to a foot for another birdie, bringing him to 18 under.

Bradley also shot 65.

Robert Streb was third, three shots back after a 68.

Ben Martin, who had a three-shot lead after two rounds, shot a 73 to drop into a tie for fourth with Jeff Overton and Andrew Svoboda at 14 under. Overton shot 67, and Svoboda 70.

SWINGING SKIRTS LPGA CLASSIC

Stacy Lewis matched 17-year-old playing partner Lydia Ko with birdies on Nos. 15 and 16 and added another on the 17th to take a one-stroke lead in the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic.

The third-ranked Lewis and fourth-ranked Ko each shot 4-under 68 at Lake Merced. Winless since the Women's British Open in August, Lewis had a 10-under 206 total.

Ko won the Canadian Women's Open as an amateur the last two years and took the Swinging Skirts World Ladies Masters in December in Thailand in her second start as a professional. She has five victories in pro events.

Jenny Shin was four strokes back at 6 under. She also shot 68.

Michelle Wie, the winner last week in Hawaii, was tied for 13th at 1 under after a 71.

CHINA OPEN

SHENZHEN, China (AP) — France's Alexander Levy followed his career-best 62 with a 2-under 70 in pelting rain and gusting wind to take a three-stroke lead into the final round of the China Open.

Levy had a 16-under 200 total at Genzon Golf Club.

Spain's Alvaro Quiros was second after a 68.
