Lizette Salas Leads 2014 Kingsmill Championship presented by JTBC After Round Three

Jessica Korda, Paula Creamer, Lexi Thompson, Michelle Wie and Stacy Lewis. Not only are those the American winners on the LPGA in 2014 so far (and it’s only May!), they were also all members of the 2013 United States Solheim Cup team. Another American Solheim sorority sister, Lizette Salas, leads the 2014 Kingsmill Championship presented by JTBC after round three. In my last Kingsmill post, I mentioned how torn I was between rooting for Hee Young Park or Stacy Lewis. There is no doubt on Sunday that if Lizette has a chance to win on the back 9, I will be in her corner. That’s nothing against anybody else…I love Hee Young, Stacy, and Lydia Ko…all in the hunt going into Sunday…but those three have multiple wins on the LPGA tour already. I’ve been pulling for Lizette to capture her first title for some time now. Any fan of golf knows opportunities can’t be squandered. There have been many players who either knocked on the door multiple times or won once, then faded in the coming years. Song Hee Kim is one that comes to mind. Between 2008 and 2011, Song Hee had 5 runner-up finishes, 6 third-place finishes and 36 top 10s. She never won and never had a top 10 again…not even a top 30 again. That’s too bad because I really liked Song Hee and felt badly about how things worked out. So sure, right now it looks like Lizette winning is only a matter of time. She looks like she’ll have plenty of chances to break through. Maybe that’s true. But it would be better not to find out whether it is or not. Hopefully, Lizette will have a round similar to her clean 6-birdie, no bogey 6-under 65 (par is 71 here) third round and end the suspense, joining her fellow American Solheim sisters in victory.
