Hannah Green preserved her lead at the Palos Verdes Championship, holding on to a one-shot advantage heading into the tournament’s final round.
The Australian entered Saturday with a three-stroke lead before faltering and firing bogeys on the first two holes. Green, however, bounced back to finish 1-over 72 to remain atop the leaderboard.

“I got off to a horrendous start, I guess you could say,” Green said. “Just short-sided myself too many times today, so I was actually pretty happy with the 1-over score.”
Lydia Ko of New Zealand sits just behind Green on the Palos Verdes leaderboard, shooting a 70 to take second place.
The final round of the Palos Verdes Championship kicks off at 6 pm ET on the Golf Channel.
