Kraft Nabisco Championship Sunday Pairings

We've got some interesting pairings for the final round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

Mika Miyazato and Candie Kung will get to play fast right behind pacesetter Lindsey Wright.  At 9:04, up-and-comers Jenny Shin and Mo Martin will try to build on yesterday's 71s.  At 9:39, Lexi Thompson and Morgan Pressel will try to turn around their 2013s, with Shanshan Feng and Natalie Gulbis trying to do the same right behind them.  Ai Miyazato fell back in the pack yesterday, but playing with Carlota Ciganda should psych her up.  Mina Harigae gets a front-row seat to Lydia Ko's attempt to earn low amateur honors in yet another major.  Like Tiffany Joh before her, Jane Park gets to play with living legend Se Ri Pak.  Ya Ni Tseng and Beatriz Recari can exchange notes on getting into the zone, while Amy Yang and Michelle Wie can talk about trying to live up to expectations.

And then things get really serious.  Stacy Lewis and Na Yeon Choi go off at 11:44.  Veteran Cristie Kerr and rookie Moriya Jutanugarn are at 12:11.

And then we get to the leaders:

12:29 Hee Kyung Seo and Anna Nordqvist
12:38 Hee Young Park and Sarah Jane Smith
12:47 Ji-Yai Shin and So Yeon Ryu
12:56 Paula Creamer and Caroline Hedwall
1:13 Jessica Korda and Pornanong Phatlum
1:22 Suzann Pettersen and Karine Icher
1:31 Karrie Webb and Angela Stanford
1:40 Inbee Park and Lizette Salas

Even if this ends up being a 2-player race, these games within the big game should also be interesting to track.
