NUEVO VALLARTA, Mexico (AP) — Esther Choe moved into position for her second straight Symetra Tour victory, shooting a 2-under 71 on Saturday to take a three-stroke in the Riviera Nayarit Classic.

Choe, from Scottsdale, Ariz., had an 8-under 138 total at El Tigre Golf & Country Club. She won the Sara Bay Classic last week in Sarasota, Fla.

"I'm just going to try to keep doing what I've been doing and see what happens and have fun," Choe said. "I appreciate playing well so much more now after the past couple years. I'm just having fun with it."

Calle Nielson, from Nashville, Tenn., was second after a 72.

The LPGA Tour developmental series was previously known as the Futures Tour.
