England’s Charley Hull is joint leader of the Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open going into the final round.

Hull posted a three-under-par 69, matching her scores from the opening two rounds, to move to nine under for the tournament.

She would have finished on 10 under and been sole leader had it not been for a disappointing bogey on the par-three 16th – her only slip of the round, which contained four birdies.

The 25-year-old, is still in contention for a fifth tournament win, as she shares the lead with American Ryann O’Toole and Thailand’s Ariya Jutanugarn.

Jutanugarn will have regrets as she was two shots clear heading to the 17th tee, but back-to-back bogeys saw her relinquish her lead, completing a mixed bag of a round that saw her card five birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey.

South African Ashleigh Buhai and and Atthaya Thitikul are a shot further back on eight under, with it all to play for going into Sunday’s final round.

Ireland’s Leona Maguire will be looking to push her way into the top 10 after she carded a two-under 70 to get to three under after her third round.

The Cavan golfer carded five birdies and two bogeys to move into a share of 15th position.
