ShopRite Classic News Flash: Another Double for Feng!

We now have a 3-way tie for the lead at the ShopRite LPGA Classic after Shanshan Feng suffered her 2nd double in her last 3 holes, Karrie Webb bogeyed the par-4 6th, and Chie Arimura extended her bogey-free run to 7 holes and counting.  Now the trio at -3 has to worry about Hee Young Park at -2, Mika Miyazato, Anna Nordqvist, Karine Icher, and Moriya Jutanugarn at -1, and even In-Kyung Kim and Haeji Kang at E.  True, Moriya hasn't hit a green in her 1st 5 holes and Haeji, in the final group with her and Shanshan, also doubled the 5th.  But at this point they're all in this thing!

[Update 1 (2:34 pm):  Correction, Moriya hit the 5th and birdied it to get back to -2!]

[Update 2 (2:39 pm):  Wow, the way the big numbers are piling up at the top of the leaderboard, Paula Creamer and Cristie Kerr, who fired matching 68s earlier today to climb to +3, shouldn't leave the Jersey Shore just yet!  There are now only 6 players under par in the entire field!]
