Holy Toledo! LPGA goes collectively low

July 04, 2009

Talk about your shootouts. Forty-four players, more than half the field of 83, bettered 70 in the third round of the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic outside Toledo, Ohio, on Saturday.

Eunjung Yi, a 21-year-old South Korean, shot 10-under par 61. Mikaela Parmlid had 62, Song-Hee Kim 64. Five players shot 65s, seven had 66s, nine had 67s, nine had 68s and 11 had 69s.

Michelle Wie shot 70, which explains how she fell from the top 10 into a tie for 22nd, nine strokes off the lead. The scoring average at Highland Meadows Golf Club was 69.
