(CNN)Canada's Brooke Henderson charged into the joint lead with Nelly Korda at the second women's major of the season with a seven-under 65 in the third round of the ANA Inspiration on Saturday.

With the temperature gauge topping 100 degrees late in the day, Henderson's red-hot display matched the conditions as she tied the front nine record at Mission Hills, covered in just 30 shots.

Korda, the sole leader for the opening two rounds, recovered from dropping three shots in two holes on her front nine with birdies at the 11th, 12th and 15th to join Henderson in the clubhouse on 12-under 204.

Henderson, chasing her second major crown and 10th LPGA Tour win, had started the day six back and only a bogey on the 13th prevented her from claiming the sole lead.

Korda, chasing her first major, said she was "very proud" of the way she fought back on the back nine to match Henderson.

Aussie veteran Katherine Kirk, who is in a three-strong chasing group two shots adrift of the leaders after a 67, summed up the feelings of many when she said she would like to win the ANA Inspiration and then perform the now traditional plunge into Poppie's Pond, the water surrounding the 18th green.
