Weekend Golf Stories - The Girls at Sunningdale
With British Women's Open well underway, the girls of the LPGA will be center stage all weekend at windy Sunningdale.
The action is on the Old Course, where Cristie Kerr had the low round of the day yesterday, an amazing 65, bringing her to -8. She's now in a tie for fourth.
Fellow American Julie Inkster has been hovering towards the top of the leader board since the tournament began and is currently third behind a Ji-Yai Shin / Yuri Fudoh tie, while defending champion Lorena Ochoa, along with Japanese star, Ai Miyazato and the iconic Natalie Gulbis are in a three way tie just behind Cristie and Bo Bae Song. There's lots of golf yet to be played in this, the last, major of the LPGA season, and it looks from here, like it'll be quite exciting.
On this side on the Atlantic we saw Michelle Wie miss yet another cut, that after a hopeful round on Thursday. She was playing with the guys, as she's want to do, and, as always, seemed pretty immune to the ample criticism she received for her efforts. So, Michelle is out of the running at the Reno-Tahoe Open and that brings me right back across the ocean to Sunningdale. Yes, it's the Girls I'm following this weekend.
