Lexi Thompson continued her great recent form with a round of 64 on Saturday to take the 54-hole lead at the Meijer LPGA Classic.
The 22-year old sits at 15-under par, one shot ahead of second-round leader Brooke Henderson of Canada, South Africa’s Lee-Anne Pace and South Koreans Jenny Shin and Sung Hyun Park.
South Korea’s Hyo Joo Kim is two shots further back at 12 under.
Thompson, who lost out in a playoff to world number one Ariya Jutanugarn at last week’s Manulife Classic, kept her cool to fire six birdies at the rain hit Blythefield Country Club in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Flooding caused the par five 5th hole to be played as a par three, which saw the course played as a par 69, meaning Thompson’s round of 5-under par under was in fact a 64.
Former world number one Lydia Ko and Michelle Wie lie tied for 7th place on 11-under par with Spain’s Carlota Ciganda and Moriya Jutanugarn – sister of new world number one Ariya.
Thompson is looking for a 9th LPGA Tour title.
