A checkered scorecard saw her drain seven birdies but also two bogeys as she drew level win Ji to sit on top a packed leaderboard, where 13 players are within five shots of the lead.
"I feel really good…I've had some really good putts today, really good shots," said the 25-year-old after the round.
"I had a really good break back there on the 18th hole. My tee shot went to the right, but I got relief because it was completely underwater, and I took advantage of that obviously. Made the putt on 17, so I wanted to keep running at it and made my last putt on 18.”

Meanwhile, Ji would sign for a one under 71 after she also endured a tough day.
“Not as great as yesterday but I don't feel really bad, you know,” said Ji.
“I just struggled with my putting this first nine, and I get just a little bit better on the back nine. I just made it out a little bit, and, yeah, I think I'm pretty happy to make a birdie on the last.”
The round of the day belonged to Australia’s Su-Hyun Oh, who eagled the 18th for a sizzling six under 66 that moved her into solo fourth behind American Brittany Altomare.
