Kim was one of only five players that shot even-par 73. Kim moved up 17 spots on the day and sits tied for 11th going into the final round.

Gloriana Soto had the second-best improvement as she shot a six-over 79 compared to an opening day 86. Soto is in 53rd and Jackie Smith had the biggest improvement on the day. She improved by nine strokes with her six-over 79.
