Thompson Holds 36-Hole Lead at Kingsmill Championship

Lexi Thompson fired a second consecutive 6-under par 65 and extended her lead to three shots after two rounds at the Kingsmill Championship.

 
Gerina Piller posted a 4-under on day two and holds on to the second spot at 9-under.

Candie Kung (66) and Lydia Ko (67) are tied for fourth at 8-under-par.


How Lexi Did It

Thompson posted a bogey-free round of 65 which included six birdies. The 22-year-old star’s best stretch came at the close of her first-nine, where she dropped birdies on three of the final four holes (6, 8, and 9). Thompson made the turn at 4-under, and then cleanly-cruised to a 2-under back nine.


Lexi’s Scorecard


Quotable

“You know, it’s just a good golf course for me. I get to hit a lot of drivers, actually, a lot of 3-woods out here as well. I just love the shape of the golf course. It’s in perfect shape for us once again this year. Probably best I’ve seen it.”
