9-time LPGA winner Ai Miyazato looks to break into double digit victories after surging into the lead after the 3rd round of the 2013 RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup. On this day, the ladies of the LPGA lit up the Wildfire Golf Club with birdies falling all over the place. Ai-sama did her share with a clean 5-birdie, no bogey 5-under 67, leaving her at 19-under overall. She has a 4-shot lead over 2nd round leader Jee Young Lee and reigning Player of the Year Stacy Lewis. Lee actually had the poorest round of the top players. She shot even par, but was the only one among the leaders not to shoot under par. Even par in this round was not good enough and dropped her out of first place. In fact, she would be in third place except that Stacy Lewis was penalized 2 shots for her caddie testing the surface of a bunker on the 16th hole. Honestly, I didn’t think what he did was a big deal…but more than that, I am getting tired of viewers at home calling in with penalties. That said, moving on to the final round, it’s still within reach. There are so many scoring holes that anything can happen if somebody gets hot. Ai is in the driver’s seat for sure, but she should check her rear view mirror in case somebody starts pulling her in on Sunday.
