Kiwi golfer Lydia Ko will go into the final day of 2024's first women's golf major six strokes off the lead.

Ko was one-under through 14 holes before the third round at The Chevron Championship was postponed due to inclement weather on Saturday (Sunday NZ Time) at The Woodlands, Texas.

The 26-year-old, who produced three birdies and two bogeys before rain took over, remains in a tie for ninth at five-under, six shots behind the leader, Thai Atthaya Thitikul.

Ko made birdies at the par-three third, par-four ninth and par-five 13th, while dropping shots at the par-four second and sixth holes.

Golfers will return to the course on Sunday at 7am local time (midnight Monday NZT) to complete their third rounds, before being re-paired for the last round. But with heavy rain forecast overnight, there could be further delays.

Meanwhile, compatriot Momoka Kobori has missed the cut at the Ladies European Tour's (LET) Joburg Ladies Open after an eight-over 81 in the second round on Friday (Saturday NZT).

Kobori carded two birdies, five bogeys, a double-bogey and triple-bogey to miss the cut by four shots. Things took a turn on the back-nine, with a double-bogey at the par-five 10th and a triple-bogey at the par-four 17th.
