Hannah Green will take a lead in the final round of the Women's PGA Championship as she approaches her first LPGA title.
The 22-year-old The Australian – who has led at Hazeltine National since the first round – shot two under 70 to go to nine under par.
That puts her only one stroke ahead of two-time winner Ariya Jutanugarn.
"It is my first time in this position, so I feel like I will be a little nervous," said Green.
"When I have more time to wait between recordings, I started feeling nerves and I thought, okay, my heart is beating.
" I think I just have to slow things down and take my time and make sure I am not in a hurry with shots. "
Green opened her penultimate round in Minnesota with three straights before following it with three birdies over the next four holes.
She beat her second bogey of the tournament on the 13th for another birdie two holes later, with a trident bogey following the 18th.
Jutanugarn from Thailand had the end of the second round three consecutive shots, but closed the gap with a four-under-68.
Americans Nelly Korda and Lizette Salas are equal for third place at five under par, while the English Georgia Hall and Mel Reid are tied up for the 23rd at level pa r.
