NAPLES, Fla. (AP) U.S. Women's Open champion Na Yeon Choi was steady after an early three-putt bogey and finished with a 3-under 69 that gave her a one-shot lead in the Titleholders.

Choi took over the lead early Saturday when Ai Miyazato made double bogey on the par-5 second hole. What kept Choi in the lead was not making many mistakes of her own. It's been that way all week at the LPGA Tour's final event. Choi is the only player to post every round in the 60s at The TwinEagles Club. She was at 12-under 204, one shot ahead of Miyazato, who rallied with four birdies on the back nine for a 71.

So Yeon Ryu, the LPGA rookie of the year, had a 68 and was two shots back.
