U.S. Women's Open Sunday: Scoring Opportunities Out There Today!

It seems like the USGA has set up Blackwolf Run fairly easy today for the final round of the U.S. Women's Open.  Sophie Gustafson, who shot an 84 yesterday, shot a 71 today.  Sun Young Yoo bounced back from a Saturday 81 with a Sunday 68.  Yeon Ju Jung improved on yesterday's 80 with a 69 today.  Even amateur Emma Talley went from 81 to 72.  Right now, Hee Kyung Seo is -3 through 16,  Brittany Lang is -3 through 13, Il Hee Lee is -3 through 9, rookie Numa Gulyanamitta is -2 through 10, amateur Lydia Ko is -1 through 16, Anna Nordqvist is -1 through 15, Jennie Lee is -1 through 13, Jenny Shin is -1 through 12, and Jimin Kang is -1 through 11.

So if anyone chasing Na Yeon Choi can put together a good round and she struggles, this tournament might just get interesting!  Well, more interesting than a breakthrough USWO win for a really really good golfer who's been overshadowed by fellow '08er Ya Ni Tseng her entire LPGA career.  Now she has a chance to do something Ya Ni's never done:  win a U.S. Women's Open.  Let's see if she can do it!

[Update 1 (1:30 pm): Add Cindy LaCrosse and Jennifer Johnson who are under par well into their rounds.]

[Update 2 (1:36 pm):  Yup, the field's scoring average today is 3 shots lower than it was yesterday.  You can follow the lowest rounds of the day at this link from the USGA!]

[Update 3 (2:14 pm):  Nice bounceback by Hee Kyung Seo:  she ended up going 80-69 on the weekend.  Contrast that with Ya Ni Tseng, who went 78-78, and you'll see how fine a line separates being on top of the world from the middle of the pack!]

Through 8 holes on Sunday, nobody is making a run at Choi. She's six up on Yang and only they are under par for the tournament. Barring a collapse, NYC wins going away.

Narrowly averted collapse--lots bad could have happened on 12 and 13 that didn't! Great bounceback, great focus, great mental toughness, great win!
