SYLVANIA, Ohio (AP) South Africa's Lee-Anne Pace, seeking a breakthrough win in the U.S., shot a 3-under 68 on Saturday to grab a share of the lead with Laura Diaz in the Marathon Classic.

Pace, an eight-time winner on the Ladies European Tour, bounced back from bogeys at holes 11 and 12 to join Diaz at 11-under 202.

Diaz, the leader after each of the first two rounds, nearly holed her drive on the short par-4 ninth before settling for an eagle. But she left a 7-foot birdie putt short on the 18th to finish with a 71.

Rookie Jaye Marie Green shot a 63 for the day's best round and was at 203 along with 2012 Marathon winner So Yeon Ryu, who had a 68.
