Duramed Championship Saturday: Lindberg-LaCrosse Newbie Showdown in the Works
Yesterday at the Duramed Championship, Pernilla Lindberg followed up yesterday's 63 with a 69, extending her lead over fellow new pro Cindy LaCrosse to 3 strokes thanks to a great finish. Maria Hernandez shot her 2nd straight 70 to move into the top 10, while Mina Harigae struggled to a 74 and fell back to T18, tied with Amanda Blumenherst, which is better than Jane Chin's 76 and Esther Choe's 80 (which cost the latter a missed cut). Tiffany Joh got a moral victory by shooting a 72, the lowest score among those who missed the cut. As usual, Lisa Mickey overviews the best stories from moving day. The leaders head off just before 10 today. Let's see if Misun Cho, playing sick and 5 behind Lindberg, can make a move on the newbies.
