Gerina Piller gets in front of the pack at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic, but the third round play was suspended, due to darkness.
Gerina sits on top of the third round leaderboard at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic, despite the fact that she has only completed 9 holes of the round. Her -10 under par total score included three birdies today, where only two groups actually finished the third round.
Gerina said she felt comfortable out there today, and mentioned steady putting;
“I did. I was a little nervous on the first tee, but I felt fine.”
“There’s just been a calm over me, and thank the good Lord that he’s watching over me.”
“Just minimize the mistakes, and fairways and greens, I mean, the wind could switch at any second, it can gust, and that’s really hard to deal with.”
” I think just staying steady with fairways and greens and two putting.”
There are six ladies on -9 under par for the tournament, with a further six on -8 under par. Throw the weather into the congested leaderboard and I guess anything, or anyone could win tomorrow. That is presuming they get around to completing the tournament on time.
Lexi Thompson, who is one of the six at -9 under par had the low round of the afternoon, -7 under par through 16 holes. None of these six have completed their rounds, the situation stands like this; Kelly Shon (thru 10), Sei Young Kim (thru 7), Perrine Delacour (thru 12), Sandra Gal (thru 9) and first and second-round leader Brooke Pancake (thru 7) all join Lexi on the leaderboard.
In the group at -8 under par are Inbee Park (thru 7) and Stacy Lewis (thru 15) .
Stacy felt good about her round today, and said she and Lexi will birdie hunting tomorrow;
“I feel good. I would have liked to have finished that round off today, but just going to bed with a good number posted so far, you know, I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”
“We’re going to have to, Lexi and I are going to have to keep making birdies like we did and hopefully get off to a good start like we did today.”
“We were talking about that we probably had the best golf going on today, we had so many birdies.”
“The first two days we were ball striking it well, just didn’t make that many putts, but today we were definitely feeding off each other off of birdies.”
