Year's first major, the Kraft Nabisco, is anyone's game
The final round of the Kraft Nabisco looks to be a race?we’ve got a top ten that features Lorena Ochoa, Cristie Kerr, and Annika Sorenstam, all ready and waiting to take a dip in Champions Lake. Ochoa is holding off the rest of the pack with a one-stroke lead. If she wins this thing, she’ll have a 75% win percentage on the season, having already picked up two wins this year out of three starts.
Ochoa’s been taking the rest of the LPGA to school this season with some seriously muy grande victory margins. In February she beat Annika by eleven to win the HSBC Women’s Champions; last weekend she won the Safeway International by seven. Is the rest of the field finally saying “enough already"? Or will she go on a tear tomorrow and win by another double-digit margin?
Don’t discount Suzann Pettersen, who shot a blistering -7 in today’s third round to rocket herself up the leaderboard from T62 to T9, and is now just four strokes off the lead along with Sorenstam.
Or Karrie Webb, lurking just out of the top 10, helped along by a hole in one today on the eighth.
Not so’s you’d know much of this if you’re watching TV?with a paltry two hours a day of coverage, you’re better off, as reader UK Wendy discovered, following the action online.
Tune in to CBS 3-6 pm tomorrow to watch the finale. Or just watch the leaderboard here.
