PERTH, Australia (AP) -- Thailand's Prom Meesawat took a two-stroke lead after three rounds with a 5-under 67 while England's Lee Westwood went from a tie for first place to being out of the World Super 6 tournament.

The Thai golfer had a three-round total of 12-under 204 at Lake Karrinyup Country Club, with three golfers tied for second: American Sean Crocker (67), Australian Lucas Herbert (69) and Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen (69).

Westwood shot a third-round 78 in the European Tour event to finish out of the top 24 that would have qualified him for match play on Sunday.

The event is sanctioned by three tours: European, Asian and PGA of Australia.
