At The Wegman’s LPGA Championship Yani Tseng is on the verge of rewriting history, again. Last season she became the youngest player to win three major championships at 22 years of age. She’ll become the youngest to four majors if she holds onto her lead at Locust Hill Country Club. With a five stroke lead over Cindy Lacrosse and Morgan Pressel, Tseng looks to have a great chance at winning her fourth major. Let’s face it: she is just playing better than anyone else, period.
The most surprising thing at The Travelers Championship isn’t that Fredrik Jacobson shot a 63 to take a one stroke lead. It really isn’t surprising that amateur sensation Patrick Cantlay hit a few speed bumps on his wild summer road trip and came down to earth with an two over par 72 to fall off the pace. The real shock is that they were able to complete the third round by Saturday evening. With almost a total washout on Thursday and a course saturated with heavy rains the folks at the Travelers worked a miracle to get this thing back on track.
Mark Weibe is ready to get on a roll as he looks to win in back to back starts at The Dick’s Sporting Goods Open on the Champions Tour. Weibe backed up his first round 65 with a 68 to take a one stroke lead over John Huston. A host of golfers are within striking distance including big names, Nick Price and Hal Sutton. Tom Watson is six strokes back at -5.
