She also broke the record for fewest strokes over 72 holes with her total of 258, achieved by Karen Stupples in 2004 and matched by Angela Stanford and Park Hee-young in 2013.

After a brace of birdies at 15 and 16, Kim stumbled with a double bogey at the par-three 17th, but strung together three more birdies on her inward run.

"Just before starting (Sunday), I was just setting my goal as a bogey-free round", Kim said.

"I made a really good up and down on 17 and then to stick it close on 18 to give myself an opportunity was great", said Law.

Even with an eight shot lead entering the round, Kim never let her foot off the gas pedal.

Spain's Carlota Ciganda (64) was second at 22 under while Anna Nordqvist and Emma Talley (both 67) and Amy Yang (68) finished joint third at 20 under.

Hataoka, who narrowly lost the Women's PGA Championship last Sunday in a three-person playoff, nearly canceled out seven birdies with a double bogey and then a quadruple bogey on No. 17.

Yang appears to be returning to her best after some injury issues earlier in the year and today provided further evidence of just that by adding a third round of 67 to move into outright 2nd place with New Zealand's Lydia Ko on her own in 3rd place one behind Yang. "She had a heck of a week and I'm really excited for her".

"I used to watch Annika on television and it was my dream to play on the LPGA with her", she said. "When someone plays that good, she deserves to win". I hit a lot of greens. She obviously knows how to win.

Kim said she didn't expect to be nervous as she chased the record - and a seventh LPGA title - on Sunday.

Aditi had a total of five birdies, two bogeys and a double in her 71.
