The 17-year-old Jutanugarn was 8 under through 16 holes, but pulled her drive and had a double bogey on the par-3 17th before rebounding with her ninth birdie of the day on the par-4 finishing hole.

Cristie Kerr, the only-two time winner in the tour's eight previous visits to the River Course, had six birdies and one bogey in a 66 that put her alone in second place.

So Yeon Ryu and Dewi Claire Schreefel shot 67, and a huge logjam at 68 included Inbee Park and Stacy Lewis, the top-ranked players on the tour, and former winner Suzann Pettersen.
