__1. How will Duke and Wake Forest respond to their poor starts at the East Regional?
__The Blue Devils start the round T-11 and the Demon Deacons are in 16th place, hardly the showing that two of the ACCs finest expected, particularly given the fact they're playing in their home state.
2. Can USC's Jennifer Song get back on track at Central Regional?
The sophomore has had a solid spring, but hasn't been happy with her ball striking. She thought she had figured a few things out in the week between Pac-10s and Regionals, but an opening 77 likely wasn't what she had in mind.
__3. Will weather play any issues?
__The sun is predicted to be out in all three locales, but the windy is expected to be pretty strong at Otter Creek in the Central Regional. There weren't a whole lot of low scores there yesterday so I'm not sure if we'll see many today either.
__4. Can East Tennessee State's Nina Muehl keep it up?
__The sophomore from Vienna, Austria, had a bogey-free opening-round 64, a school record and career best that gave her a three-stroke lead after 18 holes. How good a round was it? Consider that in 29 previous rounds this season, she had broken 70 just once.
