Sweden's Helen Alfredsson tied the tournament record to take the lead after the third round of the LPGA Longs Drugs Challenge.

Alfredsson, who hasn't won an LPGA event since 1998, shot an eight-under par 64 to lead a group of four players, including halfway leader Se Ri Pak, by one shot.

Pak, who shot a 71, is joined on 10-under by Rachel Teske, Jung Yeon Lee and Pat Hurst, who all shot 66s.

Alfredsson shot eight birdies in her round, her best of the year, and finished off by sinking a seven-foot putt at the 18th for another birdie.

It's been a terrible year, I just haven't had that spark," Alfredsson admitted. "I haven't had that enthusiasm and fire."

The most surprising name among the leaders was Lee, a second-year pro whose best finish was a fifth last year.

She had a superb start to her third round with an eagle and a birdie and finished with another five birdies and two bogeys.

Teske, who is seeking her third victory of the season, also had an eagle with hers coming at the 15th.
