RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. Karen Stupples shot a 4-under 68 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead into the final round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship, with six other majors winners within seven shots.

Stupples, the 2004 Women's British Open winner, had a 10-under 206 total at Mission Hills in the season's first major.

Yani Tseng and Suzann Pettersen, who seemingly played herself out of contention with a 73 on Friday, shot 67s to reach 9 under.

Top-ranked Lorena Ochoa rebounded from a slow start with birdies on three of her last seven holes for a 71 to join second-round leader Song Hee-Kim (72) at 7 under.

Karrie Webb, Kristie Kerr and Grace Park also were in the top nine.
