Shoot out at Wendy’s: Annika back in it

Family responsibilities have me stuck at home while other TGBers cover the LPGA on-course at today’s final round of the Wendy’s Championship. But I am actually glad I will get to follow the action on TV (via ESPN2 from 1-3 pm), because a slow start by the final threesome of leaders has set up a real shootout for the back nine.

On the leaderboard here as of 12noon, you will see that leaders Creamer, Kang and Kerr are collectively even par through the first 7 holes (with third round leader +1 for the day), which has now created an amazing log jam at the top with 11 players within 2 strokes of the lead. Annika went out in 32, and her -4 on the day right now has her to -15 for the tourney and only one back. I think at least -18 will still be needed to win, but I think Annika (and many others) can get to that number and lower.

UPDATE (from course via allCarry): As of 12:30 p.m., Annika’s right back in it, only 2 shots off the leader Pat Hurst, who is at -17. Cristie Kerr, Paula Creamer, Lorena Ochoa, and Jeong Jang are only 1 shot back, at -16. Jason’s complaining that Cristie Kerr takes a long time to hit, but, friend, I’ve seen a lot worse! Earlier, I said Soo Yun Kang is quiet, but, after double bogeying the par 3 8th, she slammed her bag and whipped her ball into the water in disgust.
