Aditi, who came close to a medal at the Tokyo Olympics, is still looking for her first top-20 finish in a Major.

On a course which has been difficult to score, only five players are under and there are three co-leaders.

The lead at 5-under is shared by Wichanee Meechai (69), Andrea Lee (67) and Minjee Lee (66).

Former British Open champion Hinako Shibuno had seven birdies for a 66 and was two behind.

Another shot back was Yuka Saso, who saved shots with her putter and one sublime shot over a bunker to a tight pin on the par-3 17th.

She dropped two shots late for a 69.

Nelly Korda, Rose Zhang and some other big stars have missed the cut on a tough course.
