Paula Creamer and Laura Diaz are trying to do their part to make the final round of the CN Canadian Women's Open interesting.

The two managed to stay within four shots of leader Lorena Ochoa after the third round at the Royal Mayfair Golf Club.

"I played good. I think I missed two greens today and other than that I was pretty solid," Creamer said.

"I made a lot of good putts and missed a ton of opportunities but considering the conditions I'll take a five under."

Creamer's five-under 66 was her best round of the tournament, yet she finds herself further behind Ochoa than she did heading into the round. The same goes for Diaz who was tied with Ochoa at seven-under to start the round, and shot a three-under 68 yesterday.

Ochoa, the top-ranked player in the world, pulled away from the field tying the course record with a seven-under 64.

Creamer played a bogey-free round with a pair of birdies on the front nine and three more on the back.

Diaz, who walked off the course frustrated after finishing the second round with a pair of bogeys, picked up her three birdies yesterday on the front nine.

"I didn't have as many opportunities today as I had (Friday)," Diaz said.

"I had a lot of opportunities inside 15-feet on the first two days and today it seemed like those were few and far between and I was having a few more longer putts, especially on the back nine.

"I missed a couple of short putts on the front, but on the back I really didn't give myself a lot of opportunities to make birdie."
