LPGA Tour Championship Monday: Hee Young Park Making a Late Move

With Na Yeon Choi going -7 over her 1st 11 holes today at the LPGA Tour Championship and Lorena Ochoa, Cristie Kerr, and Ai Miyazato making Sunday charges, as well, it's easy to overlook Choi's fellow Super Soph Hee Young Park, who's -5 with 3 holes to play and only 2 shots off the lead. Like Kristy McPherson, who's tied for the lead at -9 with Choi and Anna Nordqvist right now, Park's looking for her 1st LPGA victory. Well, she's only 1 shot behind Ochoa and 1 ahead of the big group at -6, which includes Ji-Yai Shin, who needs to get it going if she wants to become the 1st Korean Player of the Year on the LPGA.

[Update 1 (4:20 pm): Well, Park could only manage a 67 after parring out over her last 5 holes. But you sure get the feeling that 1st win isn't far away for the Rocket, don't you?]
