2015 champion Lexi Thompson made 4 birdies on the back 9 and shot 64, she leads by 1 shot at -15. Thompson missed a key birdie putt on 17, lipping out from long range.

"I was kind of surprised when I looked at the leaderboard and I had a two-shot lead on the 18th green", Henderson said. “But this week I played really well and things kind of started to turn around for me.

“I did that and I had an advantage over the rest of the field all four days.

This week Wie is driving better than 250 yards but struggling with accuracy - she's hitting less than 50% of the fairways, considerably less accurate than her season-long player stats.

"That putt on 16 was really huge, especially now looking back", she said after her victory.

Hur kept bogeys off her scorecard on Friday as she fired her second straight five-under 66.

"Obviously I saw (Henderson) playing good, and when she's on, it's hard to beat her but I'm excited to keep fighting", said Ciganda, a two-time LPGA victor. "I was looking at birdie on nearly every hole, which was nice".

Thompson, who is the lone American in the top nine, had a mixed round of 68 with six birdies and three bogeys.

Henderson won twice previous year, taking the KPMG Women's PGA Championship for her first major, and successfully defending her title in the Cambia Portland Classic.

"This morning, (my Dad) said, 'Do it for me, ' so this is definitely for him", Henderson said.

New Zealand's Lydia Ko, Feng Simin of China and Swede Madelene Sagstrom one shot further back.

Moriya Jutanugarn, Ariya Jutanugarn's older sister, is fifth at nine under after a 66. "But yeah, you never know who's going to win when you tee it up, so just got to hope it's you".

"It was just swirling so it was tough to really concentrate on the shot that you wanted to hit and commit to it", Thompson said.

She is the 15th different victor on the LPGA Tour in 15 tournaments this season, the longest streak without a repeat champion since 1991.

Pace had two eagles and five birdies.
