(AP) Lexi Thompson shot a 5-under 66 Saturday to take a three-shot lead ahead of South Korea's Ilhee Lee after the third round of the LPGA Malaysia.


The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196. Lee held the overnight lead but mixed three birdies with two bogeys for a 70. Suzann Pettersen was another three strokes back after a 67, tied for third with Shanshan Feng of China.


Thompson is aiming for her second career tour title and first since the Navistar LPGA Classic in 2011.


Sweden's Anna Nordqvist shot a 65 to climb from joint 29th to a tie for fifth alongside Karine Icher of France at 204.
