England’s Jodi Ewart Shadoff and Charley Hull are in contention after two rounds of the ANA Inspiration – the first women’s major of the year.
Ewart Shadoff, who finished second at last year’s Women’s British Open, shot a five-under 67 to move into a share of third place on seven under.
Hull, runner-up in 2016, is also on seven under after a 68.
The duo are five shots behind leaders Park Sung-hyun of South Korea and Sweden’s Pernilla Lindberg.
Park hit a superb eight-under 64 while Lindberg, the overnight leader, shot 67.
Olympic champion Inbee Park – a winner in 2013 and seven-time major champion – is seven shots off the pace following a 69
World number two Lexi Thompson fell eight shots off the pace after with a level-par 72.
The American was handed a four-stroke penalty while leading the final round of the tournament last year.
