Jones, a former Ohio State golfer, held a two-stroke lead at the 13th, but then took a 7 on the par-3 hole. Twice she put 6-iron shots into the lake fronting the green on the 135-yard hole.Dibos stands at 5-under-par 139 entering the final round after her even-par 72 in the second round.
In the logjam at 4-under are first-round leader Janice Gibson, who followed an opening 66 with a 74, Shelley Hamlin, Jill Briles-Hinton, Barb Thomas, Maggie Will and the tour's No. 2 money-winner, Beth Daniel.
The winner of the 54-hole satellite event collects $52,500 from a purse of $350,000, the smallest on the tour in 1994.
