Gerina Piller has the 54 hole lead at the Volunteers of America Shootout at Las Colinas Country Club.
Local favorite Gerina Piller shot a third round -4 under par 67 at the Volunteers of America Shootout to post a 54 hole total of -14 under par, and will take a two shot lead going into the final round tomorrow.
Gerina says she needs to improve her putting, she wants to win in front of her family and home crowd;
“I felt like I gave myself opportunities, had some great shots, just couldn’t get some putts to fall.”
“These greens are pretty tricky and they have a lot of slope to them so you definitely have to give them respect.”
“But I don’t feel like I kind of like barely got by with eight pars, I felt like I could have been a lot lower. So definitely a lot of confidence going into tomorrow.”
“I didn’t look at one leaderboard all day and I knew that if I played my game, I know I could make five or six birdies out there.”
“So I can’t control the outcome. For example, last week, just because I didn’t win, I still consider that a winning performance for me.”
“I felt like I played well, I just wasn’t good enough. There’s always a coulda, shoulda, woulda, but that’s one of those things, you’ve just got to go out and hit fairways and hit greens and get it close and make putts.”
“I mean, yeah, it would be awesome, it would be ideal. But the cool thing about it is no matter how I play tomorrow, I know that they’re going to be proud of me and we’re going to go back and hang out and they’re not going to think anything different of me, so it’s pretty cool to have that support.”

Two more South Koreans share fourth spot, Jenny Shin, -6 under 66 today and Sei Young Kim, -3 under par 68, both at -10 under par.
