England's Charley Hull is three shots off the lead at the Dubai Ladies Classic after hitting a five-under-par 67 in round three.

The 21-year-old, who trails leader Anne van Dam, hit an eagle on the par-four second hole, which she followed with three birdies in the next four holes.

England's four-time major winner Laura Davies, 54, is tied sixth after a 66.

Scotland's Kelsey MacDonald finished two over par for her round and is now in a tie for 16th place.

MacDonald, who enjoyed a promising start in Dubai, was one over for her round at the turn, before recording a bogey at the 11th hole and a double bogey on the 14th hole.

She then rallied with a birdie at the 15th before parring the 16th, 17th and 18th holes.

Van Dam leads the field by two shots after carding a two-under-par 70 on Friday to take her to 12 under for the tournament.

Angel Yin from the US and Sweden's Pernilla Lindberg sit between Van Dam and Hull on 10 under par.
