Morgan Pressel made a move towards winning the ShopRite LPGA Classic, maintaining her lead at the top of the leaderboard, and will take a one shot lead into the final round tomorrow.
Morgan stayed at the top of the ShopRite LPGA Classic leaderboard with her second round -2 under par 69, giving her a -7 under par total in this three round competition.
Morgan is looking to break a near seven-year winless drought, but has been playing really well recently, with some decent finishes;
“I guess the more that I am in that position, the more comfortable I am with it.”
“I think at the end of the day, you have to be comfortable with the results, the outcome, no matter what it is.”
“I feel like I’m in a good place, and I’m there, and no matter what happens tomorrow, I’m happy with my game and the direction that I’m heading.”
“Tomorrow is not the end of the world one way or the other, but I’m going to go out there and give it my best shot.”
“It was a tough day to play. I think that the wind tomorrow is going to be pretty similar. I was able to keep the ball in front of me really well today.”
“I only hit a couple of poor shots, one on 13 where I ended up having to pitch out after a poor drive, but the wind is tough to club, but it’s also tough to commit, and I think that I did a pretty good job committing to all the shots today, committing to my target lines.”
“Sometimes when you have an 8-iron or a 9-iron in your hand it’s hard to aim 40 yards right of the pin and trust that the wind is going to bring it all the way back, but I did a pretty good job of that today, and going to need more of the same tomorrow.”
Anna Nordqvist is just one shot back at -6 under par for the tournament, and she is really the only player who can contest the leadership as the chasing pack of five ladies are at -4 under par. They are Kelly Shon , Christel Boeljon , Gerina Piller , Pernilla Lindberg , and Catriona Matthew.
The defending Champion, Stacy Lewis is T66 at +3 over par for the tournament, very sad defense of her title. World number two Inbee Park is T21 at -1 under par.
