After opening a four-stroke lead, the 20-year-old Lee dropped back with a bogey on the par-4 16th and a double bogey on the par-3 17th. She finished with a 70, leaving her a stroke behind.

Paula Creamer, So Yeon Ryu and Minjee Lee were 9 under. Creamer shot 66, Ryu 68, and Minjee Lee 69.

Top-ranked Lydia Ko was tied for 20th at 3 under after a 70.
