Lorena Ochoa Invitational Sunday Front 9: In-Kyung Kim's Got Her Putter

In-Kyung Kim just dropped a 30 on the field at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational, finishing the front 9 with 4 birdies in a row to climb to -17 through 63 holes. Despite the heroics of Angela Stanford, who followed up a 31 on the front with an eagle on the par-5 10th (her 4th sub-par hole in a row) and just birdied the par-4 15th to get to -11; despite the charge by Na Yeon Choi that saw her get to -13 with 6 left to play (she was -6 through 11 today); despite the brilliance of Song-Hee Kim (who's birdied 6 of her last 10 holes to join them at -11) and Hee Young Park (who birdied 5 of her 1st 8 holes to beat them there)--despite all that fantastic golf--this is now Inky's tournament to lose. Let's see how she plays the back 9!

[Update 1 (3:14 pm): Ai Miyazato got it to -12 before a double bogey-bogey-bogey stretch early on the front knocked her out of contention. She'll need to follow up her birdie on 9 with a heck of a lot more to have a hope of fulfilling my prediction for her! Too bad she couldn't make it 2 par 5s in a row on the 10th.... But hey, I did just reiterate that Inky is the most likely to win next among those with 2 LPGA victories to their names!]
