“It’s great. It’s always great to come back, of course,” said Jutanugarn. “Seeing the ball go into the hole and feeling good. Swing is good, but, I mean, tomorrow is going to be new day and you don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m just trying to keep working on what I’m doing and just go out and have fun.”

Hsu, who qualified in 2015, will be in the final round on Sunday for the first time.

“Definitely a little nervous and a little exciting. But also the COVID pandemic in Taiwan–we got so many new case right now, so people are really nervous and the whole country almost shut down. So I’m very happy of my performance on the first round, that I can to show and share with all my friends and family the good news,” said Hsu. “I don’t know what I going to end up today, but hopefully I going to have even better performance tomorrow and hopefully I can share this good news to my family and the people in Taiwan.”

Looking for her second victory in 2021, American Jessica Korda sits one shot behind at 9-under.

“It was really slow today. It was tough. The greens are definitely a lot faster than they were the first couple days, so I think it was just hard for me to get really comfortable,” said Korda. “It was just nice to be able to put a couple birdies in.” 

Fellow American Lizette Salas shot a 7-under 64 to tie for fourth with Australian Sarah Kemp. Kemp started the day with a one shot lead but lost it after a double-bogey at the 11th.
