"I'm glad this happened today instead of tomorrow," Tseng said. "I was just thinking too much and trying too hard. It's good to find out earlier."
Sjodin pulled back into the lead with a birdie putt on the 16th, while Tseng bogeyed the 15th after a poor shot out of a bunker. Tseng pulled even with Sjodin yet again on the par-3 17th, holing a beautiful 6-iron for birdie.
Kang began the day one stroke off the lead, but had three bogeys in five holes around the turn. She rebounded with an eagle on the 11th and another birdie.
Se Ri Pak stayed in the hunt at the only major she has never won, shooting a 72 to stay at 5 under. Australia's Lindsey Wright was hurt by the wind, falling from third to 24th with a 76.
World No. 3 Suzann Pettersen, who has finished second at the Kraft Nabisco three times, took full advantage of an early tee time to match the tournament's lowest round at 66, moving up 36 spots to 12th. Lexi Thompson, the 17-year-old prodigy, also avoided the winds with a 68, matching Pettersen at 4-under 212.
With winds expected throughout Saturday night into Sunday, the Kraft Nabisco delayed its first tee times for the final round to finish course cleanup, and grouped the players in threesomes with split tees to finish quickly.
