Chella Choi Leads 2013 Mobile Bay LPGA Classic After Round 3; Anna Nordqvist’s 61 Scorches Course

Oh my goodness! The ladies of the LPGA are torching the course at the 2013 Mobile Bay LPGA Classic. In the 2nd round, Sydnee Michaels christened a new course record of 62. That lasted 24 hours as Anna Nordqvist, at times looking like she would threaten countrywoman Annika Sorenstam’s LPGA record 59, threw down a career best 61. Anna claims she hadn’t experienced a good putting day “in years”…probably a sign of frustration with her game. She sure had one on Saturday. She had a single little glitch, missing a four foot (or so) par putt that hooked the right edge of the hole and spun out left. Otherwise, it could have been even better. Who knows if her approach on 18 would have changed if she were sitting at 12-under for the round and needed one more birdie for 59. But it was not to be. Still, a 61 is the low round of Anna’s career by 3 shots. Here’s the problem, though. EVERYBODY seems to be pouring in birdies on the Crossings Course. Chella Choi leads with a 17-under overall. I’m a big Chella fan and would love to see her win her first LPGA tournament. The thing is, it’s such a shooting gallery out there that who knows if somebody else will go crazy low on Sunday. Oddly enough, Anna is the only player in the top 21 after the 3rd round with a round over par. By the time Chella tees off, she’ll probably be 3 or 4 shots back. I can’t wait to see who will step up in the final round. Maybe we’ll see another course record.
