Lee is looking for her fifth victory and a chance to put behind behind her the missed cut two weeks ago.

''I didn't particularly hit it bad, even though I missed the cut at ShopRite, I just didn't really hole any putts,'' Lee said. ''I'd been hitting it pretty solid going into that tournament and even into this tournament, too. Just to see a couple putts roll in has been nice.''

She went round the course in only 24 putts on Friday and matched the lowest round of her career.

Hataoka was bogey-free and and made six birdies over eight holes on Saturday. The Japanese teenager has finished in the top-10 in four of her last five starts.

''I try to make birdies and try to be under par, that's really the key for me to get a top ten,'' Hataoka said. ''Golf is just trying to be in the top 10 every single week, so that's the key.''

Lexi Thompson player a 64, matching the low round of the day, to get to third place at 11-under. Along the way she hit 17 of 18 fairways and played her opening nine in 5-under 30.

Third-ranked Lexi Thompson matched Thompson with a 64 to get to 11 under. She hit 17 of 18 fairways and shot a 5-under 30 on her opening nine.

Overnight leader Gaby Lopez dropped to 4-under with a 75.
