Lexi Thompson Has Huge Day, Shoots 10-under in Round 3

Lexi Thompson is in a tie for third after shooting 10-under-par in Round 3 in the Meijer LPGA Classic

Just one week after her win at the ShopRite LPGA Classic presented by Acer, Lexi Thompson finds herself again in contention heading into the final round of the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give. The 2015 champion at Blythefield Country Club started the round 10 strokes behind Brooke Henderson in a tie for 19th but Thompson took advantage of the many birdie opportunities today in her third-round 62.

“There's a lot of birdies out there,” said Thompson, who had 10 birdies, two bogeys and an eagle on the day. “You can fire at a lot more pins just because of how soft it is playing. But the rough is up pretty thick, so you just have to keep it in the fairways and you know you can have birdie chances.”

It’s been feast or famine in Thompson’s last six starts, with a win, three other top-three finishes and two missed cuts in that stretch. Today’s success? It all started with a good warm-up routine.

“I had a good warm up on the range, felt good about my game,” said Thompson. “You know, the last two days I haven't struck it to my capability and what I've been working on in my game, but today, it kind of all fell together. I had a good warm up and just felt good and came out relaxed and started off with a birdie and from there it just kind of went.”
