It’s a tightly-packed leaderboard after round three of the Ascendant LPGA Benefiting Volunteers of America at Old American Golf Club in The Colony, Texas.
Xiyu Lin and Charley Hull are tied for the lead at 11 under, while Celine Boutier and Lydia Ko sit one back with 18 holes left to play.
Lin got around Old American on Saturday with a 2-under 69, while Hull couldn’t get much going, firing an even-par round of 71.
Boutier signed for the second-best round of the day, a 5-under 66, which could have been a lot better if she took advantage of the par 5s (she birdied just one of four).

After turning with a 2-under 33, Ko’s round was derailed a bit thanks to a double-bogey five at the par-3 11th. However, she made four birdies in her last seven holes to bounce back. She finished day three with a 4-under 67.
Lexi Thompson is T-9 at 7 under while Madelene Sagstrom is T-13 at 6 under.
