Lewis holds a one-shot lead at ongoing Thai LPGA event

After making four bogies in her first six holes, American female golfer, Stacy Lewis, managed to regain her composure and retain her outright lead Saturday’s women’s Thailand open.

Lewis, who is currently ranked 3rd in the world, slipped one shot behind her playing partner, Amy Yang, from South Korea, after she bogeyed her second, fourth, fifth as well as her sixth round. This was after the female golfer had made significant gains earlier in the day where she started off three strokes in front.

She managed to regain her footing with an eagle on her 73rd round helping her finish the day at 13-under at the Siam Country Club in Chonburi.

"That's pretty much the only good thing that came out of today," said the American female golfer. "I was a bit all over the place. I played six really bad holes to start the day but then got things going."
Lewis playing partner Amy Yang ended the hot and humid day with a 71 one shot behind Lewis at 12 under while Sandra Gal from Germany carded 68, four points behind Lewis and 3 behind Yang at 11-under.

"I was kind of in the zone and just really playing one shot at a time," said Gal who played her last five holes which are regarded by many as tricky in five holes in minus three.
"It was good to finish strong in this humidity and this hot weather where it's really tough to stay focused and fresh especially during the end of the round."
