AP Sports Writer

CLIFTON, N.J. (AP) — Minjee Lee had an eagle-birdie run on the back nine and took a one-shot lead over Madelene Sagstrom Saturday, heading into the final round of the Cognizant Founders Cup. Lee, the LPGA Tour’s leading scoring this year, shot a 3-under 69 on a day the Upper Montclair Country Club showed some teeth with wind and rain. Lee, who had a three-shot lead at the halfway point, was at 17-under 199 after 54  holes. Sagstrom, the Swedish first-round leader, had the best third-round with a 67.  Lexi Thompson was alone in third, three shots back after a 69.
