Stacy Lewis increased her lead to two strokes in the Dubai Ladies Masters, shooting a 2-under 70 in the third round Friday.

The third-ranked Lewis, a three-time winner this year on the LPGA Tour, had an 11-under 205 total in the Ladies European Tour's season-ending event. She had three birdies and a bogey at Emirates Golf Course a day after making eight birdies in a 65.

''It's always hard to follow up a day like I had yesterday, especially on the greens,'' Lewis said. ''It was the kind of day that could have been worse and it could have been better. But overall, I'm right where I need to be going into tomorrow.

''I just didn't hit it quite as close. Didn't have as many good opportunities at birdie. But still hit a ton of greens and, if I can just get a couple more putts to fall early tomorrow, I think I'll be in a good place.''

Thailand's Pornanong Phatlum was second after a 69.

''I don't think I played that bad,'' Phatlum said. ''I just missed a few putts.''

Defending champion Shanshan Feng of China was tied for ninth at 2 under after a 71.
