Minjee Lee may be a day away from her greatest triumph.

The Australian continued her stellar golf on the third day of the US Women’s Open, shooting 67 to take a three-shot lead into the final round.

Although the 26-year-old from Perth is already a Major winner and ranked fourth in the world, this would be another level.

The US Women’s Open is the biggest tournament in women’s golf and this year is worth a record $US 10 million. First prize alone is $US1.8 million.

Lee made five birdies during her third round including four in a row from the ninth to the 12th, with her iron play showing up as remarkable and her putting on song.

A nice chip at the par-4 18th hole gave her a solid par for a 67 to go with earlier rounds of 67-66 and at 13 under par, she leads American Mina Harigae by three shots with a further three shots to the next contender, England’s Bronte Law.

Realistically, it is hers to win or lose now at Pine Needles in North Carolina.

Lee won her first Major, the Evian Championship, last year in France, but she has stated that she wants to be the world No.1 and she will be within sight of that mantle if she can win tomorrow.
