Stephanie Meadow is just five shots off the lead heading into the final round of the Canadian Pacific Women's Open.

Meadow carded a third-round 69 to finish the day on 12 under to leave her in a tie for third place.

The Armagh woman, who recently represented Ireland at the Olympics, began the day with two birdies in the first three holes. She bogeyed either side of the turn but recovered with three successive boundaries on holes 15, 16 and 17 to keep pace with the leaders.

World number two Ariya Jutanugarn currently leads after carding a 17 under 67 which leaves her two shots clear of South Korean In Gee Chun.
