Lexi Thompson will take a three shot lead into Sunday’s final round at the Kingsmill Championship.
It should have been four.
Thompson came up just short of the 257-yard closing hole and was in great position to make birdie. She didn’t and settled for a third round 69 and a 14-under par total through 54-holes.
She’s three in front of In Gee Chun, who turned in a 67.
Although it looks like a two-woman battle, there are some pretty strong players sitting five behind. World’s No. 1 Lydia Ko, Sei Young Kim and Minjee Lee are all at nine-under par.
Thompson said she won’t worry about who’s behind her.
“I’ll try and have the same mindset I’d had the last three days,” she said after her round. “I will focus on my own game.”
Thompson is looking for her eighth LPGA victory.
