Leading Australian Minjee Lee will take some good form into the round of 16 at the LPGA Match Play in Las Vegas.

World No.11 Lee advanced from the group stage on Friday with a 4 and 3 win over Thai star Moriya Jutanugarn, following another 4 and 3 win over American Cheyenne Knight a day earlier and a tie with Jaye Marie Green on day one.
