(Reuters) – Australian Hannah Green had her lead whittled down to one stroke as Ariya Jutanugarn applied the heat in the third round of the Women’s PGA Championship in Minnesota on Saturday.
A three-putt bogey at the final hole for a two-under-par 70 left Green with a slender advantage with one round left at Hazeltine National in Chaska. She posted a nine-under 207 total, while Ariya compiled a 68 to go to eight-under.
The former world number one from Thailand had six birdies.
Americans Nelly Korda (69) and Lizette Salas (68) are equal third, four shots from the lead.
