Thompson takes 3-shot lead at LPGA Malaysia
The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196. Lee held the overnight lead but mixed three birdies with two bogeys for a 70. Suzann Pettersen was another three strokes back after a 67, tied for third with Shanshan Feng of China.
“I felt really well going into today, I had a good practice session before my round, so I was pretty confident,” Thompson said. “Every player wants to go into the final round with a lead.”
Pettersen has switched golf balls for this week and said she’s hitting it longer as a result, but she struggled with her putting all day.
“I’m playing pretty steady, hitting almost 18 greens, and not making a putt. It’s very hard to stay patient,” Pettersen said. “Four under is pretty much the worst score I could shoot. Just glad there is one more round tomorrow. Lexi is playing great, so there’s definitely a low one needed tomorrow.”
Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist had the best round of the day with a 65 to climb from joint 29th to a tie for fifth alongside Karine Icher of France at 204.
