LPGA LORENA OCHOA INVITATIONAL. Lexi Leads on Day 3 November 17 2013

Lexi Thompson leads the Lorena Ochoa Invitational, at the Guadalajara Country Club, in Mexico at the end of day 3. Lexi Thompson / Getty Images Lexi had a -5 under par 67 in the third round of the Lorena Ochoa Invitational, to lead the competition at -13 under par. In a scene similar to the boys comp in Mexico there was a rain delay here, but it did not deter Lexi in her mission;  "Well the rain definitely affected us somewhat but I teed off a little bit later with the delay. I think just controlling my yardages out here is pretty big and playing consistently. My irons were a lot closer today, and I dropped a few longer putts. It gives me confidence going into tomorrow but I know there’s a lot of great players right behind me, and I know I have to play well. I know I have to shoot another four or five under tomorrow. I’m just going to go out with the same attitude and just commit to every shot.” In second place, and trailing Lexi by just one stroke at -12 under par is I.K. Kim, who is looking to become the first player to record multiple wins at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational. I.k required only 22 putts today in her round of -5 under par 67, and said it would nice to achieve such a result; " That would be nice, winning is amazing, but, like I said, for me, just being able to play golf and just have fun, that’s the first thing. If I can win twice, I mean, why not, I think it would be really great. At the start of the day it was pouring down, so we didn’t expect the rain, but everybody was in the rain. I had a good start, I made birdie on one and two, and I think that kind of helped going forwards. Basically I really like this golf course. I have a good feeling for the course, and I’ve been practicing. It’s just nice to see the result. We have a great leader board. Everybody’s playing solid, and I think, like last time, I was playing with Suzann, and she was playing so well that I thought might as well. I think this golf tournament always kind of, everybody tries to push each other a little bit, and I think that helps sometimes. So tomorrow, just sleep well and eat well. You know, that’s the game plan." In third place alone  is Stacy Lewis, she also recorded a -5 under par 67 today, leaving her at  -11 under par for the tournament, and is well in contention here in Mexico. It will be an exciting days golf tomorrow.
