Overnight leader Lydia Ko Ko retains a share of the lead at 15-under after carding a 71 at Dundonald Links on Saturday, hitting nine of 14 fairways and 16 of 18 greens. She has now held the lead or co-lead 17 times through 54 holes and has gone on to win eight times.

“I think I drove it a little better than I did the last couple days,” said the New Zealander. “My irons were not as sharp so I don’t think I set myself up for as many easier kind of 15 feet and birdie opportunities. I know it wasn’t the best golf I’ve played, but I was able to scramble around.

“I don’t think it was as bad as I think, and I think because I had two really low rounds it makes me compare more to the past couple days. I know there’s a lot of good out there and hopefully maintain the good tomorrow and see the hole on the greens, on a few more tomorrow.”

France’s Celine Boutier started the day four shots behind Ko and fired a 5-under 67 to take a share of the lead. She carded her third-lowest 54-hole total on the LPGA Tour and it is the fourth time she holds the lead or co-lead through three rounds. She previously went on to win once, at the 2021 ShopRite LPGA Classic.

“It was a very solid day. I started the front pretty solid and that helped me relax a little bit. The conditions were more windy and a little bit tougher I would say so it was good to get a good start and stayed very patient. Had a lot of opportunities, and took advantage of some of them.

“I really like links golf and playing in windy conditions. I feel like my ball flight is pretty low and so I never really have trouble keeping it down which is an advantage here because the ball doesn’t get affected as much. And I had some good memories of playing well in the past so that’s always helpful.”

Germany’s Leonie Harm and Canada’s Maude-Aimee Leblanc are tied in third place at 14-under. Harm made her first bogey of the week on the par-5 third, but was able to shake it off. She is within five shots of the lead for the second time on the LPGA Tour.

“It was a bit of a rough start. I had some par saves on the front nine and couldn’t really quite hit it as close as I was used to the previous days, and then I had that bogey on three which kind of put me back a little bit,” said Harm. “But luckily I had the ability to turn it around with good saves on 7 and 8 and a long birdie putt on 9. Yeah, had a great finish, 4-under on the last five, so I’m really happy about that.

American Lilia Vu carded a 71 and moved down into a share of fifth place at 13-under with South Korean major champion Eun-Hee Ji (70).
