Esther Choe in Playoff to Make It 3 Wins on Symetra Tour in 3 Starts

Former teen prodigy Esther Choe has been playing great this year on the Symetra Tour, winning the 1st 2 events she played on it this season, and pretty decently on the Ladies European Tour, where she's 50th on their money list in only 7 starts.  Well, this week, she was the only player to shoot 3 rounds under par in Concord, New Hampshire, and as a result of a late bogey barrage from veteran Jenny Gleason, she now finds herself in a playoff with a "battlefield promotion" to the LPGA at stake.  Stay tuned!

[Update 1 (5:16 pm):  The twitterati are congratulating Jenny Gleason!  Gleason has 6 LPGA starts in which she's won less than $7K and 2 previous Symetra Tour starts in which she's won less than $4K, so this is a big deal.  Gleason was 6th on the Symetra Tour money list in 2005 and 9th last season.   Too bad for Choe, but at least she extended her lead on Leah Wigger on the money list with her runner-up finish....]
