Stacy Lewis was on a roll in the third round of the U.S. Women's Open at Trump National Golf Club.

The American birdied four straight holes to pull within a shot of leader Shanshan Feng, a run that included a 40-foot putt on No. 9.

Then, the day unraveled. After her birdie on No. 10, she made a triple bogey on the par-4, 11th hole, chipping her third shot from behind the green off the front and leaving her chip back up short. A bogey on the 12th hole dropped her five shots off the lead.

After five straight pars, she hit two wedge shots into the water on the par-5 18th and closed with a 10.

Lewis ended up with a 4-over 76 to drop to 2 over — 11 shots off the lead.

Lewis declined to speak with the media after the round.

"No chance," she said twice to an LPGA Tour official.

The former top-ranked player has 11 victories, including two majors. She has finished second 12 times since her last LPGA Tour victory in 2014.
