Thompson keeps lead at Navistar Classic

Sept. 21, 2012 at 9:30 PM   |   Comments

PRATTVILLE, Ala., Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Lexi Thompson maintained the lead Friday in her bid to win the Navistar LPGA Classic for the second year in a row.

Thompson followed up her 63 on Thursday, which was the low round of her career, with a 3-under 69 at the Senator Course on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

Her 12-under 132 total gave her a one-shot lead over Mi Jung Hur and Mindy Kim, both of whom had a 65 Friday. Dori Carter, Hee Young Park and Lizette Salas shared fourth place at 134.

Thompson was 16 years old when she won this tournament a year ago, making her the youngest player in history to win an LPGA Tour event. That record was broken last month when 15-year-old Lydia Ko won the Women's Canadian Open.

Those tied for seventh place after 36 holes at 135 included Gerina Piller, Sydnee Michaels, Lori Kane and Angela Stanford. World No. 1 Yani Tseng had a 70 and was tied for 40th at 141.

It took a score of 143 to make the cut and Michelle Wie missed it by one.
