Lexi's victory ruined after being dobbed in by eagle-eyed viewer
Last year, she chose to change her swing, after which her world ranking dropped slightly, preventing her from competing at the Olympics, but she never regretted her decision and the changes are paying off this season.
Her playing partner, Suzann Pettersen, said: "I thought it was serious when two rules officials came out". "I did not mean that at all. I didn't even realize I did that". A two-shot lead (at 16-under) after the 12th hole immediately turned into a two-shot deficit for Thompson.
The world number two, who won the last of his four major titles in 2014, has played 99 practice holes at Augusta over the last two weeks. As she hit her second shot into the island green on the 18th hole, setting up a potential winning eagle, the gallery in the grandstands chanted "Lexi!"
Leading scores: 274: Ryu So-Yeon (68, 69, 69, 68), Lexi Thompson (69, 67, 71*, 67); 275: Park In-Bee (69, 69, 68, 69), Minjee Lee (70, 68, 68, 69).
"But don't tell me that during the week because I'll believe that it can happen every time". "I don't feel like I can fly under the radar anymore, but at the same time, it's sort of felt that way to me and it's been nice to be able to prepare and just go about my business and try to get ready for this tournament".
"I wasn't expecting what happened today, but it is what it is and I'll learn from it". It's a very unfortunate situation.
Woods had his own experience at rules tip-offs during major championships, notably in 2013 when a television viewer called in to reveal Woods' errant drop on the 15th hole during the second round, for which he was given a two-stroke penalty the following day.
When Thompson was informed of the penalties, she responded, "is this a joke?"
