Thompson leads Kingsmill by three
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.
