Salas shoots 8-under 64 to grab lead at Indy Championship

Taking the spoils this time was Park Sung-hyun.

Sunday, Sung Hyun Park's up and down season took an upturn as the Korean recorded her third victory of the season at the Indy Women in Tech Championship Drive by Group 1001.

She became the second three-time victor on tour this season and now won five LPGA Tour titles over the past two years - including two majors.

Park closed with a 4-under 68 to match Salas at 23-under 265 at Brickyard Crosssing. 23-under 2-65 at Brickyard Crossing in the US state of Indiana. With five of the next six players on the leader board ranked in the world's top 30, Salas knows it won't be easy.

"I don't want to try too hard on the course, just I'm really trying to just enjoy it on the course with my new caddie", she said.

Salas has not won on tour since the 2014 Kingsmill Championship.

But the 29-year-old Californian seems to have the ideal touch for this course, which weaves around and inside the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

She birdied three of the first five holes to reach 7 under, started the back nine with three straight birdies then took the lead with her ninth and final birdie of the day on the par-4 17th. "And yeah, putts dropped for sure".

South Korea's Amy Yang was third, a shot back after a 69. "After hitting in the rough on 18 in regulation I could have freaked out, I could have done a lot of other things, but I stayed patient and I hit the shot I wanted". I have one more day to go.

As I anticipated, the cut line has crept up to three-under par and there are enough players still needing to finish their rounds that it could edge up to four-under before it's said and done.

She sits at 1-over for the round and 3-under overall after 13 holes and will have to close out without falling further back with the projected cut at 3-under.

Thompson climbed the leaderboard with an eight-under 64, her eight birdies including four in a row from the fourth through the seventh holes.

"I'm going to do really well", she said.

After finishing tied for fifth in last year's 54-hole tournament here with three sub-par rounds, she opened this year's event with a course record-tying 62 on Thursday. I hit it great. She went on to finish with a 64, a career-best. "I feel really good about my game, especially my short game, since my practice".

Salas finished runner-up for the second time this season after also picking up a second place finish in March at the Kia Classic. "And it's just about the weather now, so hopefully the weather is good".
