“Meghan doubled the first hole but really settled down,” Robson said. “She got it to two-under with six holes to go.

“Amber has to play aggressively and that is what she did today. She just had a real solid round.

“Kauffman missed some ups and down but the key thing for her today she hit it well and stayed out of trouble.”
