9-12 - and three bogeys to reach 12-under 130 and break the 36-hole record at Blythefield. "You know, I sometimes overthink things and I'm just trying to have more fun with my caddie in between shots and he does great with just helping me relax out there", she explained.

"I actually love all the fans and we've got a big fan base the last two days especially", Thompson said. "So hopefully tomorrow I can drop a few more putts and climb the leaderboard a little bit".

"Unfortunately, the two bogeys just came at the end and kind of put a damper on the round, but I'm still leading it looks like by two at this point", Henderson added.

"I played really nicely", said Pace, who has yet to finish in the top 10 this year and has only one career win on the LPGA Tour. There were a couple of long putts I made, unexpected putts actually.

Flooding on the golf course caused the par five 5th hole to be played as a par three today resulting in the golf course being played as a par 69 and Thompson's round of 5 under was in fact a 64.

Australia's Su Oh fired the equal best round of the day, a five-under 64, to finish the tournament in a tie for fourth at 14-under-par. She was tied for 28th a week ago at the Manulife LPGA Classic, but, as she's just one shot back of the lead, she's eager to make a move Sunday.

"It was just a matter of really staying patient", Thompson said of her round Saturday.

Hyo Joo Kim is a shot further back, alone in sixth at 12-under par.

New Zealand's Lydia Ko, at No.2 after an 85-week run at the top was ended by Ariya, was two shots ahead of the Thai on 136.

Her successor, Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn, is eight off the pace.

The 20-year-old Kiwi, who shot an opening round four-under 65, fell back with a two-over 71 on day two, but was happy with the way she regrouped, particularly after torrential overnight rain.

A three-times victor on the LPGA Tour, Henderson has recorded just one top-five finish this season.
