McGill and Lindley are the outsiders among this trio of champions but they have played like they belong at the party. McGill shot an extremely solid 71 on Saturday and Lindley handled the pressure of playing in the final pairing with a 75. Lurking at 1-under-par 218 is Catriona Matthew, with Trish Johnson at even-par 219.

“My kids made it in last night along with my husband, so glad to have them here. I honestly am happy to be in this position. I’m hitting a lot of good golf shots. A couple of creepers come along from being out of play, but overall really happy.” – Jill McGill, who is one stroke off the lead.
