GRAND RAPIDS (US),

INDIAN golfer Aditi Ashok stayed on course for her best finish of the season as she held on to the tied 18th position with a three-under 66 in the third round of the Meijer LPGA Classic here. With three birdies against one bogey, Aditi, is just two shots away from a possible Top-10 finish. On Saturday, the par-five fifth hole was converted to a par-three due to standing water after torrential rain blew through the Grand Rapids area overnight Friday and into Saturday morning.

With the par for the day being reduced to 69, she was five-under 64 for the round and Aditi had a 66, which was three-under. Despite a two-hour rain delay it was Lexi Thompson who took best advantage of the soft course conditions and once again heads into a final round with a chance at winning.
