The action starts early tomorrow with everything to play for. This is as big a stage as it gets! 
Even if a few feel that a three stroke lead goin into the final round is enough, we saw with Nelly, what pressure can do. Aditi too had a blip in the middle there, but she bounced back with two birdies in her last 4 holes to open a two stroke lead over third placed golfers. Diksha on the other hand carded a solid one-over par round with a bogey free back 9. Third straight improved round.
Join us tomorrow to cheer our girls all the way to the podium.

Another good day for India at the golf course today!

Aditi consolidated on her awesome performance with another stupendous show. Agree, there were a few nerves in between which showed in her putting in the middle, but how well did she come back! 2 birdies in the last 3 holes. We saw Nelly Korda sweating and making a few unforced errors towards the end, didn't we? Golfers too are humans after all...

Diksha had a very inspiring outing today. She carded a bogey free last 9 and +1 for the day. What a fine young talent she is.

04:57 (GMT)6 AUG 2021

Pure class & skill from Nelly! Great out from the rough to set up a tap in par.

04:56 (GMT)6 AUG 2021

Nelly will look to do an up & down from rough. She took help to get the cables removed after duly marking her ball. Lesson for all amateurs there. 

04:54 (GMT)6 AUG 2021

Nelly goes over the green! Scrambling...

04:53 (GMT)6 AUG 2021

Ooh! we heard Aditi's  cries of "Go..." right upto India.... Must've skipped a beat there... but great second shot on the 18th! Sets up a long birdie putt...

Mone Inami drops a stroke on 18th. Finishes -3 for the day. Tied 3rd at -10 for the tournament.

04:50 (GMT)6 AUG 2021

While we wait for the 18th green to clear, Diksha rounds up her 3rd round at +1 for the day. An even par back 9. Brilliant. A solid card for her. She is Tied 52nd at +7 for the tournament. Well done girl!

04:37 (GMT)6 AUG 2021

Bad break for Nelly. From bunker side rough, she goes off the green on the fringe. Putting to save par here

Meanwhile, Diksha maintains her bogey free back 9, 7 back to back pars. +1 through 17 holes today. Tied 51. 

04:34 (GMT)6 AUG 2021

2 holes to go for Aditi today. Can she setup a birdie on 17th? She does! Beautifully done. 14footer for birdie, which is smack in the middle of her putting range

04:18 (GMT)6 AUG 2021

Now on 168yards par 3 16th. Playing 168yards today, Aditi is well short of the pin on the right, long putt for her. Good shots by Nelly & Madsen.

04:14 (GMT)6 AUG 2021

Reading a few questions on the play tomorrow. Final round is scheduled to be played tomorrow as planned. If weather interrupts, we have Sunday also to finish, weather permitting

Yesssss!!! She sinks the putt! What a big birdie this is! Aditi now ties Mone for 2nd at -11

04:07 (GMT)6 AUG 2021

My oh my! Nelly Korda feeling the heat? Leaves the putt too short! She will do well to save par

04:06 (GMT)6 AUG 2021

Diksha, meanwhile continues with her string of pars. Now tied 51st after par on 6th. She remains +1 for the day. Very steady & encouraging performance by her so far.

04:04 (GMT)6 AUG 2021

Aditi drives fairway down the middle on par 4, 15th. She goes over the flag to set up a long birdie chance. Nelly goes right & catches the slope away from the pin. A two putt par for Nelly & birdie for Aditi?
