England’s Charley Hull is three shots off the lead at the Dubai Ladies Classic after hitting a five-under par 67 in round three.

The 21-year-old, who trails leader Anne van Dam, hit an eagle on the par-four second hole, which she followed with three birdies in the next four holes.

England’s four time major winner Laura Davies, 54, is tied sixth after a 66.

Scotland’s Kelsey MacDonald finished two-over par for her round and is now in a tie for 16th place.

MacDonald, who enjoyed a promising start in Dubai this week, was one-over for her round at the turn, before recording a bogey at the 11th hole and a double bogey on the 14th hole.

She then rallied with a birdie at the 15th before parring the 16th, 17th and 18th holes.

The Netherlands’ Van Dam leads the field by two shots after carding a two-under par 70 on Friday to take her to 12-under par for the tournament.

Angel Yin from the US and Sweden’s Pernilla Lindberg sit between Van Dam and Hull on 10-under par.
