Amy Lee of Brea, Calif., matched the female competitive course record with a 67 to move into third place at 3 under. Solomon had his third consecutive round in the 60s. "I hit a lot of greens, which gave me a bunch of opportunities to score," Solomon said. "I didn't get in too much trouble all day and that was key to my success out there. ... "I do like playing with the lead and I think I will be fine tomorrow. I had three wins last summer, and I had the lead in all of them heading into the final round. I am pretty confident."
