Inbee Park holds a five-shot lead over the field at the LPGA Kia Classic, with Leona Maguire and Stephanie Meadow now 12 shots adrift of the South Korean ahead of the final round.

Maguire carded a two-under 70 while Meadow went round in a one-over 73. It left both players level par for the championship.

Park, making her first tour start of the season, sits on 12-under after carding a successive three-under 69 in a round that had four birdies and a bogey.

Mel Reid, Minjee Lee and Mi Jung Hur are next best at seven-under. Jin Young Ko, Lexi Thompson and Madelene Sagstrom are a shot further back.
