Team Canada Young Pro Squad member, Anne-Catherine Tanguay, of Quebec City, QC., is tied for second with France’s Celine Boutier after round three of the Symetra Tour’s Self Regional Healthcare Foundation Classic.
Tanguay and Boutier are 10-under par for the tournament, two shots behind leader, Paola Moreno of Columbia.
The 26-year-old, Tanguay, who led by two shots entering the third round, hit her tee shot on hole one right and had to scramble for a double bogey. However, she responded well with a birdie on two and finished even for the day.

“I felt really comfortable on the first hole, it was just a bad swing that put me in a bad position,” explained Tanguay. “The important thing from there is I was able to bounce back.”
Tanguay closed with a birdie on 18 to post a 72.
“I think the conditions were a little different than the other days, but I still gave myself chances, but the putts didn’t go in so I am going to work on making more confident strokes,” said Tanguay. “I was getting the speed right, just not the lines.”
Tanguay will go for her first win and fifth top 10 of the season on Sunday.
I’m happy to be here and I’m excited for tomorrow.”
Fellow Canadian, and Tanguay’s Young Pro Squad teammate, Augusta James, of Bath, Ont., is T7, after firing a 1-over par, 73 on Saturday.
James, also a member of the Team Canad Young Pro Squad, is looking to improve on her 12th place finish in the Volvik Race for the Cup in 2016.
After a 1-under par, 35, on the front nine, James faltered on the second nine, recording three bogeys.
