Sheehan's wayward drive on the 390-yard seventh hit Mrs Davies and, instead of going into the trees, came down out of trouble and enabled Sheehan to par the hole. The 35-year-old, trying to become the first player to win both the US and British Open titles in the same year, went on to add a 72 to her opening 68.
With one round to go, she is one behind the leader Corrine Dibnah, who had five birdies for a 69 and seven-under-par total of 139. Davies got to two under with six to play, but then bogeyed the next five for a 76, nine behind Sheehan.
