LPGA Q-School Friday: Jessica Korda Moves into Contention with 66

Lisa Mickey, Hound Dog, and Ryan Ballengee focus on the leaders and notables near the 72-hole cut line after 3 rounds of LPGA Q-School. What they don't emphasize enough is how Jessica Korda's bogey-free 66 was even more impressive because it came on the tougher Legends course. I wouldn't be surprised to see her or Aree Song (who also went under par on the Legends course yesterday) in the lead at the end of play today, given their increased odds of going low on the Champions course.

As everyone teed off this morning, here's where the notables stood:

It'll take some Korda-esque rounds on the Legends course today to keep alive many players' hopes of getting their 2011 LPGA cards, while others will be looking to do what Pornanong Phatlum did on Thursday on the Champions course. Stay tuned!
