Thompson shoots 67 for 1-shot lead after 3rd round

On the back, she bogeyed No. 10 but got the stroke back with a birdie on the 13th hole.

She picked up five of her seven birdies on the back nine, including four in a row from the 11th through 14th. "It was an awesome day".

Her third-hole misery did not last long either. "It was more just making pars and getting off the hole", Thompson said after her round.

Sharp said she was proud of herself for being able to put the penalty behind her and move on to a good round. "I like the position".

It was her first ace in a tournament, and 2016 Manulife LPGA Classic champion Caroline Masson has another memory to add to her collection from this tournament. She is 18th on the LPGA money list.

"I felt like I could make any putt out there". "I hit it good, kind of where I wanted to, and watched it release a little bit as we started walking and it disappeared".

She said she was thrilled to notch her second-ever ace at this tournament, and in front of a special guest.

But the 19-year-old golf sensation is hoping to change all that this week when the sixth instalment of the tournament begins on Thursday at Whistle Bear Golf Club. She was visibly frustrated with her short game at times and didn't speak with reporters after signing her scorecard. Sharp shot a bogey free 2-under 70 on Saturday afternoon.

"When I got to double digits, I was like, 'This is pretty awesome, '" Duncan said said.

"There was a lot of spectators who came and supported her", said Jutanugarn of Marchand's gallery.

Duncan now faces the prospect of playing in the final group on Sunday for the first time in her professional career.

The Canadian star rebounded from a pedestrian opening round by firing a 5-under-par 67 at the Manulife LPGA Classic.

Brittany Marchand, who plays full-time on the Symetra Tour and who grew up playing golf in Brampton, Ont.

"I'm playing very well so far", she said. "I'm just trying to have fun". "I thought I did the right thing (telling the official)". She hit an iron. I'm like, 'Oh my God. She is in a tie for 24th place with a slew of other players. "It's good to learn from a player like that".

"Today was a lot windier than the last two days, so there was just more shot making and some pins were pretty hard to get to". But Sharp said hers was likely caused by dehydration. "Not sure how that's going to be tomorrow, but it was good to get through this round". "One I three-putted (today) and yesterday I hit a bad drive". When you subtract the $4,000 she has spent in $500-per-tournament entry fees, that's a $3,510 takeaway, not including expenses like gas and food. "It was nice to have a few putts go in and see some birdies".

"I wore orange today".

Things might not have gone as well for Henderson, a three-time tour victor who is still looking for her first victory this season, had it not been for a strong finish to her round. "And, you know, four under, it got really windy out there, so I'm really happy".
