Nordqvist, Hull in front by one
Anna Nordqvist carded a five-under-par 68 and Charley Hull fired a four-under-par 69 to take a one-shot lead after the third round of the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic.
Nordqvist and Hull, who finished on 12-under, are closely followed by Stacy Lewis, Hyo Joo Kim and defending champion Sei Young Kim who are in a tie for third on 11-under.
Two shots behind the leaders in a tie for sixth are Ilhee Lee and debutant Megan Khang, who both finished on 10-under.
Nordqvist began her round with four birdies on the front nine before faltering at the beginning of the back nine with her only bogey of the round at the 11th. However, she atoned for her mistake with birdies at the 15th and 18th.
Hull, an overnight leader, stayed atop the leaderboard despite starting her round with a bogey at the first. She went on to make two birdies on the front nine before recording her second bogey at the 10th. However, she shifted her game to the next level after her second bogey as she made four birdies to end her round strongly.
Lewis surged up the leaderboard on Saturday as she hit a six-under-par 67, which began with a pair of birdies on the front nine. The 30-year-old proceeded to make consecutive birdies at the 11th and 12th before sinking two more at the 15th and 18th.
Hyo Joo Kim also climbed up the leaderboard with her round of 68, which consisted of four birdies, a bogey and an eagle at the par-five 18th.
Meanwhile, Sei Young Kim carded a 69 and got off to a strong start on Saturday as she made four birdies on the front nine. However, two further birdie on the back nine were cancelled out by a double bogey at the 16th.
There was delight for Ha Na Jang who hit the first hole-in-one on par-four in LPGA Tour history when she registered an albatross at the par-four eighth hole. This propelled the South Korean to seven-under and a share of 13th.
