Lewis leads Mobile Bay LPGA Classic after 3 rounds



MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Stacy Lewis birdied five of her last seven holes Saturday to shoot a 5-under 67 and take a two-stroke lead over Brittany Lincicome into the final round of the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic.

Lewis, the 2011 Kraft Nabisco Championship winner, finished strong again to hang onto her second-round lead. Karine Icher of France shot a 68 and is three strokes back while Sun Young Yoo and Lindsey Wright both had 69s and are at 10 under.

Six others, including 17-year-old Floridian Lexi Thompson, are within five shots of Lewis’s 14-under 202 total on The Crossings course at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s Magnolia Grove complex.

Karrie Webb is also among that group after tying the tournament record with a 64 already matched a day earlier by Karin Sjodin.
