"I can't actually remember much of my round today. I just felt quite focused," said Hull.
"I wasn't even sure of my score until I looked at a leaderboard. The key for me was probably my par save on the last."
"I feel great. I feel more like myself. Like I said earlier, I'm not really intimidated by anything anymore. I'm enjoying the process," said Salas.
The American runner-up at the 2019 Women's British Open is looking for her first major title and first win on the LPGA Tour for seven years. Salas, whose best finish in this event was fifth place at Hazeltine National in 2019 also has an eye on the Solheim Cup.
Jessica Korda and former U.S. Women's Open champion Jeong-Eun Lee are in a group of seven players at three-under.
Nelly Korda, who won her second LPGA Tour title of 2021 last week, sits a further shot back at two-under in a group that also includes ANA Inspiration winner Patty Tavatanakit. Tavatanakit opened with three birdies in her first five holes before dropping and closed with a pair of birdies after struggling mid-round.
