Wegmans LPGA Third Round

It's about 3 in the afternoon and the tournament is in a rain delay. But, we have an interesting showdown for Sunday taking shape between Suzann Pettersen and Morgan Pressel. On a relatively short course, Pettersen is making her mark on the par 5s to get to the lead. Pressel, the much shorter hitter, has scored very well on par 3s - something that doesn't usually happen in pro golf.

But, they are certainly not the only names of note. A couple of other golfers remain in contention. Ai Miyazato, still searching for LPGA Tour win numero uno, is a stroke out of the lead. Hee-Won Han, with 3 Top 10 finishes this year, is within striking distance - especially with pick, clean, and place rules in effect. Eun-Hee Ji, a non-exempt player rookie last season (now exempt), is -8 through 16 and is a birdie away from setting the course record.

Lorena and Paula are T14 and probably out of the running barring a Ji-like final round.

Ji is exempt this season and if she had gotten that last birdie she would have tied the course record of 63....
