“I’m satisfied with my result today because some shot a little bit big miss, but I did up and down well.

“I’m waiting so much (for my) second win, but this tournament is even the major tournament. If I win, I’ll be very happy. Huge honor.

Yealimi Noh is in second place at 13-under after firing a 67 comprising of six birdies and two bogeys.

“After the turn I wasn’t hitting it as well, especially when my ball is above my feet I was having a little trouble. I was pushing it and pulling it, so I couldn’t get it right,” said Noh. “Anyway, I wasn’t hitting it that close. I think the shot on No. 16 really boosted my confidence because I was hitting a lot of like left-to-right shots today, a lot of little cuts, but it wasn’t working the way I wanted to.

“That hole I was debating whether or not I should do that again, but I trusted it and it turned out really good. So gave me a lot of confidence for the next couple.”

Lydia Ko, the 2015 champion, moved up into third place at 12-under with a bogey-free 68.

“With golf, you just never know. It’s never the end until the glove comes off and the final putt drops in on the last,” said Ko. “I just got to stick to my gameplan and see. There are so many big names, a lot of players playing well, so I think I have to focus on me and go from there.”

Three players are tied for fourth at 11-under – Minjee Lee, whose third-round 65 was tied for the low round of the day; Ayaka Furue (68) and first-round co-leader Pajaree Anannarukarn (72).

Ariya Jutanugarn, who shot a 63 on Friday, could only manage a 1-over 73 on Saturday and enters the final round in solo seventh at 10-under.

Past Evian champions Hyo Joo Kim (69) and In Gee Chun (68) are joined by Charley Hull (66) to round out the top 10 at 9-under.
