The Quebecer started her day well with a birdie from the second pennant. However, bogeys on the sixth and eighth holes dampened his enthusiasm. She eventually finished at 144 (N), in a group of 19 golfers that also included compatriot Maddie Szerik (71) who were slashed by a single shot.

Australian Minjee Lee suffered a very different fate as she handed the best card of the day, at 63 (-9). She particularly stood out on the back nine, with a sequence of four birdies and an eagle in six holes.

She is now three strokes ahead of her three closest pursuers at 130 (-14). Looking for a seventh LPGA victory, she will have to watch Americans Ally Ewing (66) and Lexi Thompson (66) as well as Sweden's Madelene Sagstrom (70).
