Lexi Thompson birdied six of the first eight holes and wanted more.
“I wanted to make more birdies on the back nine, but it is what it is,” she said.
She did add one more birdie on Friday for a season-best seven-under 64 and a share of the Meijer LPGA Classic lead with Alison Lee and Lizette Salas.
“I hit it in the rough on a few holes on the back nine, where I needed to hit it in the fairway to be able to make birdies, but I’m very happy with my round, don’t get me wrong,” Thompson said.
Thompson, 20, matched Lee and Salas at nine-under 133 at the Blythefield Country Club.
Lee, the 20-year-old former UCLA player in her first season on the tour, had a 66, and playing partner Salas, a former University of Southern California star, shot a 69. [FULL STORY]
