Ireland's Leona Maguire maintained her good form at the Women's British Open by posting a two-under-par 70 in Saturday's third round.

The world number one amateur from Cavan carded birdies at the second and sixth to go along with 16 pars in a steady round at Kingsbarns.

It leaves Maguire as the leading amateur in the tournament on six under and in a tie for 22nd.

South Korea's Kim In-kyung holds a six-shot lead on 17 under.

Maguire is three strokes clear of nearest amateur challenger Sophie Lamb going into the final round.
