Jordanstown's Stephanie Meadow carded a second successive 67 to move up to 13th entering Sunday's final round of the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic, the opening event of the 2017 LPGA Tour season.

The 20-year old made seven birdies and just one bogey in her six-under par round to go into Sunday within a shot of the top-ten but 10 strokes adrift of co-leaders Stacy Lewis (63) and Lexi Thompson (66) on 13-under par.

Lewis and Thompson lead by one stroke on 23-under from Gerina Piller (65) with Brittany Lincicome a shot further back on 21-under after a 65 at the Ocean Club Golf Course in Nassau.
