Rampant Kim in sight of maiden major title

If that wasn't enough, Inbee Park had just toured Kingsbarns Links in a course record-tying 64 and was one shot behind.

Ally McDonald also finished four-under to position herself one shot behind the duo, as things are tight at the top.

After Saturday's round, Kim didn't dance around the shadow that follows her.

First-round leader Michelle Wie did not fare so well, making only one birdie in a 76.

Lexi Thompson, with her regular caddie Kevin McAlpine a Kingsbarns veteran, plotted her way around and a timely birdie at the last - just before more rainstorms, brought her in with a five-under 67.

The 19-year-old World No.9 is already a major champion - but even though she has just two Ricoh Women's British Open's under her belt and didn't play last week, she's still confident with the work she's put in to prepare for this week. She said, 'Shouldn't it go straight back and straight through?' I hate to give her credit, but she was right. I think we ran that group in front of us off the golf course. More birdies came at the 11th and 12th. So it was tough.

"I didn't lose my focus. I certainly don't get surprised by anything anymore".

Home hope Georgia Hall looked set to prove Kim's biggest rival heading into Sunday, only for a bogey at the 16th and a double at the following hole to drop her back to 11-under to deeply hinder her hopes.

Both took advantage of the benign morning weather to make substantial progress up the leaderboard.

A birdie putt of 15 feet on the fourth got her off and running and, having reached the turn in two-under, Wie really upped the ante on the inward half. Lewis moved all the way up to a tie for sixth. "I nuked a drive on the next hole and that helped me out". I hit it better than yesterday. "I've been building a lot of confidence and just taking it day by day and just working towards something, been working towards playing well, and just want to have fun out there, not really thinking of the future". "The nerves got to me on the first tee for sure, but I was able to stay composed. Which I did. And I managed to hole a couple of good putts on the back nine". "And that's what I worked on today".

The seven-time major victor had two bogeys in her first three holes and recorded two more in her round with the only highlight a birdie on the par-4 ninth.

Miguel Angel Carballo and Stuart Appleby were tied for second place with 14 points apiece at the Montreaux Golf and Country Club course.
