She's now just three shots off the lead with one round remaining.Ko is one of three players that can win the LPGA Tour's CME Globe and a one million US dollar bonus if she wins the tournament.

World number one Stacey Lewis and Korea's Inbee Park are the others that can claim the prize should they win.
