She struck it very well and rolled a lot of great putts.

“I think its best Ive ever seen it, ” Lincicome said about the course.

Lexi Thompson, right, talks with her caddie Kevin McAlpine on the ninth tee during the first round of the Kingsmill Championship LPGA golf tournament in Williamsburg, Va., Thursday, May 18, 2017.

U.S. star Lexi Thompson fired a bogey-free six-under par 65 to stretch her lead to three strokes after Friday's (Saturday in Manila) second round of the LPGA Kingsmill Championship. "She had an incredible time".

"I just got to focus on that one shot at the time", Ko said.

World No. 1 Lydia Ko, as many expected, made a charge early Friday and briefly held the outright lead.

Ko hasn't won a tournament since July, putting her 19-month reign as world No.1 under serious threat this week. "Sleeping on the lead, you can overthink it", he said.

Ko entered the week 25th on tour in greens in regulation, hitting 73.6 percent. She ultimately lost in a playoff to So Yeon Ryu.

Lexi Thompson signs autographs after finishing the second round.

As for replaying those so-close putts in his mind, or thinking about having the 54-hole lead, the two-time PGA Tour victor had other plans after finishing his round. 2 and 8 at least once.

Thompson's 6-under scores matched her second-best round of the season.

"I'm going to be as determined as any other person out here", Thompson said. "I get to hit a lot of drivers, actually, a lot of 3-woods out here as well". I have a little bit more drive now I would say, but I'm just going to go out there and be confident and see where it goes. "She played great today, too. But this course is absolutely handsome and to see it from 10,000 feet is unbelievable". "Fairways are running well. That's why everyone likes to come out here". I've stayed on-site the last couple years.

"There are some longer holes, some shorter ones where you can play aggressive and a par-5 on which you can get home for two", Ko said. "It's just so convenient". 16-18. Tringale was fifth at 9 under after a 67, ande defending Nelson champion and Masters victor Garcia was tied for sixth at 8 under after a 64.

The track wasn't so kind to Chesapeake native and former University of Virginia star Lauren Coughlin, who was playing on a sponsor's exemption.

Getting back to action after almost a month, Indian golfer Aditi Ashok was sailing fine till a bogey finish derailed her first round at the Kingsmill Championship in Williamsburg on Thursday. At 9-over, she missed the even-par cut by nine strokes.

One bogey, on the sixth hole, spoiled a round which featured five birdies. With a strong finish PIller could finish in the top 10, but that wasn't what she had in mind when she started the third round alongside Thompson.

She was the tour's youngest player in 2016.
