Lee raced through the front nine in 32 today and appeared as if she might finish a lot closer than would eventually be the case but the momentum slowed over the closing nine holes and a bogey at the last could yet prove very costly in the final analysis tomorrow.
Lee’s round of 69 was the second best of the day behind Sung Hyun Park’s 68 and allowed her to improve ten position from her overnight standing.
Korda and Hsu lead by two over Jin Young Ko, Bronte law, Megan Khang, Jodi Ewart Shadoff and Lydia Ko with Annie Park another shot back.
Hannah Green is the next best of the Australians in 25th place.
