Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - SPORTS -

WILLIAMSBURG, Va.— Lexi Thomp­son shot her sec­ond straight 6-un­der 65 on Fri­day to take a three­stroke over play­ing part­ner Ge­rina Piller into the­week­end at the Kingsmill Cham­pi­onship.

Thomp­son is play­ing her third tour­na­ment since los­ing the ma­jor ANA In­spi­ra­tion in a play­off af­ter be­ing pe­nal­ized four strokes for a rules vi­o­la­tion that a TV viewer spot­ted.

“I feel great with where my game is at,” Thomp­son said. “I am just try­ing to keep my thoughts very sim­ple, fo­cus on do­ing my rou­tine and pick­ing small tar­gets out and com­mit­ting to my shots. If I do that, my game is in a good spot.”

The long-hit­ting Coral Springs na­tive had six birdies in a bo­gey-free round on Kingsmill's River Course. She waited out a rain de­lay in the mid­dle of the round.
