Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Saturday: Morning Movers

The morning wave swept over Pinnacle Country Club and left a ton of great scores in its wake on moving day at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship.   Hee Kyung Seo fired a scorching 65, with 4 birdies and an eagle on the par-4 4th, that got her to -4.  Dewi Claire Schreefel matched it with a 6-birdie, no-bogey round of her own to move to -5.  Hannah Yun bounced back from a Friday 79 with a Saturday 66, a huge moral victory even though at +3 she's unlikely to make the cut.  Katie Futcher (-6), So Yeon Ryu (-5), Natalie Gulbis (+1), and Alena Sharp (+1) all shot 67s to move way up the leaderboard.  Hee Young Park is heading into the par-5 18th hole with a -5 round going today.  But the round of the morning will most likely belong to Brittany Lang, who's -8 today with only the 9th hole left to play.

[Update 1 (3:03 pm):  Lang and Park both parred their final holes, Lang for a 63 that brings her into a tie for 1st at -6 with Futcher, Ai Miyazato (68), Ryann O'Toole (68), and Shanshan Feng (who came back for a 70 thanks to 3 birdies in her last 4 holes).]

[Update 2 (3:10 pm): Add Gerina Piller to the list of 67-shooters from the morning!]

[Update 3 (6:18 pm):  And So Yeon Ryu!]
