Olesen leads Perth International 3rd round lead (The Associated Press)

Thorbjorn Olesen's bunker shots and putting helped him grind out a 5-under 67 Saturday to lead the Perth International golf tournament by three strokes after the third round. Olesen of Norway had six birdies and a bogey to reach 16-under after three rounds, matching the score that won the inaugural tournament two years ago. He leads from South Korea's Sihwan Kim, who shot 69 to move to 13 under, a stroke ahead of England's James Morrison, who also had 69 after Friday's course-record 63. American Peter Uihlein was the big mover Saturday, making seven birdies in an unblemished 65 to move up to outright fourth at 11-under.

American Jessica Korda rebounded from an opening double bogey for a share of the second-round lead Saturday in the Blue Bay LPGA. Korda made seven birdies in a 14-hole stretch - the last three on Nos. 14-16 - and shot a 5-under 67 to match South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace at 11-under 133 at Jian Lake Blue Bay. ''I got a little frazzled there as I was walking to the first tee box and then obviously didn't hit a good shot,'' Korda said.

By Julian Linden SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A glutton for punishment or a woman on a mission? Either way, Caroline Wozniacki has no intentions of putting her feet up just yet after her last tennis match of the season. Rather than take an immediate break after losing to Serena Williams at the WTA Finals on Saturday, Wozniacki is already looking ahead to another sporting challenge -- her first marathon.

Tennis-Wozniacki targets New York marathon after tennis loss (Reuters)

Rather than take an immediate break after losing to Serena Williams at the WTA Finals on Saturday, Wozniacki is already looking ahead to another sporting challenge -- her first marathon. The Dane has been pounding the streets for months to prepare herself for the ultimate test of endurance, which she will undertake at the New York marathon on Nov. 2. Then head to New York very soon." Wozniacki only decided to enter the New York marathon in July, just two months after splitting with her fiance, Northern Irish golfer Rory McIlroy. Wozniacki had already sent out the invitations for the November wedding when McIlroy phoned her to say it was all off, a call that she later said left her "shocked." In the months since their break-up, Wozniacki has devoted herself to training and her tennis career has taken off again.
