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.

...
Madsen finishes +1 for the day at 8 under tied 7th
...
Pure class & skill from Nelly! Great out from the rough to set up a tap in par.
...
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. 
...
Nelly goes over the green! Scrambling...
...
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.
...
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!

Big thanks to semdev7443 for taking some load off my shoulder today!

Lydia Ko (AUS) tidies up the 18th with a par. She finished -5 today, -10 tied 4th today. Good round!

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. 
...
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

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

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.
...
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?
