Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic Sunday Morning: If You Want a Sense of What the Leaders Will Be Facing... the final round of the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic, check out the scorecards of Vicky Hurst (70), Adrienne White (70), Mina Harigae (E through 17), Reilley Rankin (-1 through 16), Gwladys Nocera (-2 through 16), and Haeji Kang (-4 through 16). They're the only players who seem to be taking advantage of Highland Meadows early in the day.

[Update 1 (11:12 am): Vicky Hurst just tweeted that she tried to drive the 293-yard par-4 13th. She ended up bogeying parring it.]

[Update 2 (11:28 am): Yay, Mina birdied her last 3 holes for a 70!]

[Update 3 (11:31 am): Now Taylor Leon is -1 heading into those 2 closing par 5s. Rankin is -2 with the 18th left to play.]

[Update 4 (11:38 am): Nocera parred out for her bogey-free 69--1st to break 70 of the day! But Kang has low round of the day with a 67. She also parred out.]

[Update 5 (11:41 am): Rankin gets the 2nd 69 of the day. Leon can become the 3rd with a walkoff birdie.]

[Update 6 (12:08 pm): Leon couldn't do it. Jill McGill also shot a 70. Amy Hung can match Kang's low round of the day with a walkoff birdie; she'll take leader of the clubhouse away from her almost no matter what she does on 18.]

[Update 7 (12:10 pm): Mindy Kim is -2 today with 18 left to play. Not that many low scores out there so far.]

[Update 8 (12:24 pm): Hung parred 18 for her 68; she's leader in the clubhouse at -4. Kim parred for her 69. If Sun Young Yoo birdies the 2 closing par 5s, she'll pass both of them and match Kang's low round of the day. Like Harigae and at least 1 other morning player, Yoo doubled the par-5 7th. That's one for the leaders to watch out for.]

[Update 9 (12:26 pm): Yoo will need to finish strong, however, as Allison Hanna is already -5 for the tournament and -3 on the day as she enters the last 2 holes.]

[Update 10 (12:30 pm): The player with the best chance to go low early, however, is sweet-swinging Chella Choi. She's -4 on the day and -6 for the tournament as she enters the 2 closing par 5s.]

[Update 11 (12:41 pm): Choi birdied 17! Yoo and Hanna failed to do so.]

[Update 12 (12:45 pm): Yoo birdied 18 for a 68 that tied Hung at -4. They're co-leaders in the clubhouse until Hanna and Choi finish their rounds.]

[Update 13 (1:08 pm): Hanna bogeyed 18 for a 69 that put her at -4 with Yoo and Hung, but a great 65 for Choi after she birdied 18! She ends the tournament at -8, T10 for now. And with that, it's time to switch to a new post!]
