Paula Creamer, Beatriz Recari Tied For Lead After 3rd Round Of 2013 Marathon Classic

Paula Creamer (click to enlarge)

Took a long break after Wimbledon 2013 to recharge the batteries, so to speak. I had to end my blogging vacation with Paula Creamer in prime position to break her winning drought with one round to play at the 2013 Marathon Classic presented by Owens Corning & O-I.  The Pink Panther matched 4-under 71s with playing partner Beatriz Recari, leaving the duo tied at 12-under overall, 3 shots clear of a trio of players tied for 3rd at 9-under. Paula’s round was highlighted by a brilliant chip-in birdie from the greenside rough on 17, a shot similarly executed for birdie minutes earlier by Jacqui Concolino. Quite the perfectionist on this day, Creamer left the course seemingly a little vexed by spinning back her approach shot on the par 5 18th too far from the cup, settling for a 2 putt par on a hole she probably should have birdied (or at least given herself a better shot at birdying). Paula hasn’t won since capturing her first Major at the 2010 US Women’s Open at Oakmont. It won’t be easy on Sunday, either. Beatriz Recari is a 2-time LPGA winner and the reigning Kia Classic champion, having triumphed in Carlsbad, California back in March. Also, beware of Lexi Thompson, Chie Arimura and Concolino 3 shots back.
