4PM UPDATE: Inbee Park holding sway

South Korea's Inbee Park has jumped out to a three-shot lead in the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open midway through the third round.

Park, 31, a seven-time major winner, made four birdies on the front nine to take control of the event, despite a charge from behind by France's Perrine Delacour.

Delacour had the low round of the day so far, a six-under par 67.

Through 12 holes of the third round Park is at three-under for the day and 13-under overall, three shots ahead of Delacour, China's Yu Liu, American Marina Alex and another Korean, Ayean Cho at 10-under.

Of the Australians, Hannah Green leads the way in a tied for 12th at seven-under, after she carded a one-under par 72 today.

But top-ranked Minjee Lee is out of the running after at 74 today.
