It’s time for wind suits and ear muffs today at The Sybase Classic today. I’ve been following the lead groups around the front nine and there is plenty of wind and cool temperatures to keep to ladies bundled up. This looks like it is turning into a match play between Ji Young Oh and Suzann Pettersen. Young holds a one stroke lead over Pettersen at the turn. Michelle Wie is at nine under followed by Paula Creamer. Young had birdies at 3, 5 and seven and a bogey at eight to shoot 34 on the front. Pettersen stumbled at the start with bogeys on the first two holes. She was not pleased to say the least. She came back with three straight birdies on 5, 6, and 7. Michelle Wie, who is drawing the largest gallery, had a bogey and birdie on the front nine. Paula Creamer dressed in all pink and using her trademark Sunday pin balls, has fallen off the pace with three bogeys and one birdie after ten holes. Brittany Lincicome has had a rough from nine shooting a forty. Even with a poor start, she is still all smiles as she laughs with her caddy between shots.
****Update @ 2:00…Young bogeyed 10…she and Pettersen are tied at -13 after 10 holes***
