Lizette fired a bogey free -6 under par 65 to lead the Kingsmill Championship by three shots at -13 under par, and giving her a good feeling; "I felt really good, like my mentality. Yes, I was quite nervous coming down the stretch, Hee Young was knocking it close to the pin. But I felt good. I felt relaxed most importantly. I was just trying to smile as much as possible.” “I took a different approach this week, I only played the pro am. I’ve seen the course several times. It’s my third year here, I didn’t want to think too much about the golf course and just hit my targets. Last week I had a good practice session at home, so I was feeling good coming in.” Hee Young Park is in second place on her own at -10 under par, and is not too worried about the three shot gap; “First few holes putted pretty well, and then it was a little bit struggle. But before the finishing holes I pretty much got the feel back, so I’m happy. One more round left, so I’m not at all disappointed. Three strokes is nothing." Lydia Ko, Stacy Lewis and Katherine Kirk all share third position, at -8 under par. Lydia shot -4 under par, moving her up the table from the T12 position she started at. Both Lydia and Stacy are vying to become Rolex Rankings #1 this week. Stacy won her last start at the North Texas LPGA Shootout, and entered this week at No. 2 and can pass Inbee Park, who is not playing, with a win or a solo second-place finish. The 17-year-old Lydia, who won last month at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic, would become the youngest top-ranked player in either the men's or women's game with a win on Sunday. Lydia is going to try her best tomorrow, whatever the other players do; “I really didn’t think about the other players, I just wanted to keep to my game and just do as I planned.  If it goes to my plan, that’s great. I just try to concentrate on my game. It’s hard enough trying to concentrate and get things done by yourself.  But there are some really good scores out there, so I’m just going to try my best tomorrow.”
