Shanghai: Aditi Ashok made an upwards move on the third day of the $600,000 Buick Championships on Ladies European Tour as she returned a second successive one-over 73 in Shanghai on Saturday.

At four-over 220 for 54 holes, Aditi, whose personal best on LET is tied 8th as an amateur at the Hero Indian Open in 2012, was tied 31st.

Starting from the 10th, Aditi got off on the wrong foot with a bogey on 11th, but back-to-back birdies on two par-4s on 14th and 15th steadied her on a cloudy and blustery day at the Shanghai Qizhong Garden Golf Club.

A bogey on Par-5 17th saw her turn in even par, and a birdie on second put her in red figures again. Then came a troubled stretch where she dropped bogeys on third, fifth and seventh. However, a birdie on closing ninth gave her something to look forward to on Sunday.

Defending champion Shanshan Feng and overnight joint leader Na Yeon Choi stayed tied for the lead. Choi, the 2012 US women's champion, led for most of the day before making bogey on 18 to slip back into a share of the lead with Feng on nine-under par.

Aditi was happy with her performance considering she played in Shanghai without a practice round.

"I am happy with my performance so far given the fact that my golf bag arrived only on the night before the first round of the championship. So I started the tournament without a practice round. Having said that, I think I have played well. The conditions have been rather very windy for last two rounds -- second and third - and today in the third I did well and made four birdies. I will do my best and keep creating chances and minimise my mistakes to have a better finish."

Speaking of the round specifically, she said, "The bogey on third was a result of a three-putt, and on the fifth I went into the fairway bunker and dropped a shot. On the par 3 7th I missed the green and couldn't make up and down."

Just two strokes behind Feng and Choi is the American Beth Allen in third place. Allen made an excellent birdie putt from 25 feet on 15 before adding another on 17 to keep pace.

Meanwhile, Florentyna Parker, runner-up at the Lalla Meryem Cup last week in Morocco, is only three shots from the lead in fourth place. She is a stroke ahead of fellow Englishwoman Georgia Hall (71), who shares fifth spot with China's Wei Wei Zhang on five-under-par.
