Crowded at the top going into final round of Symetra Tour's Credit Union Classic
After two rounds of the Symetra Tour's Credit Union Classic at Drumlins Golf Club, 10 different golfers at the top of the leaderboard are within two strokes, fighting for the title.
One of the biggest movers of the day was Rachel Rohanna, who shot a 4-under 67, putting her at 6-under overall for the tournament and tied for the lead with Veronica Felibert going into the final round.
â??I feel really good, especially after a rough last week when I had two really bad rounds,â?? Rohanna says. â??Coming into this week, I really worked on my swing and I wanted to make sure I was giving myself good opportunities for birdies and had a few drop yesterday and today.â??
Four golfers are tied for second a 5-under, including Calle Nielson, who in her third appearance at Drumlins made her first cut, shooting 1-under 70 on Saturday afternoon.
"I played okay today, didn't play great, had some putts that didn't fall," Nielson says. "Pin placements were a lot tougher so same mindset tomorrow...they'll fall, they have to go in...they have to go in, but overall I'm playing very consistently."
The cut of the Top 70 and ties stretched to three-over par late in the day, keeping the niece of Tiger Woods, Cheyenne Woods, in the tournament. Woods shot three-over 74 on Saturday, just good enough to earn a 9:23 a.m. tee time on Sunday morning. She'll go off the tenth tee.
2013 Credit Union Classic winner Olivia Jordan-Higgins barely missed the cut, shooting 4-over overall.
The leaders, Rachel Rohanna and Veronica Felibert tee off the first tee at 9:36 a.m. Sunday morning, and will be joined by Katelyn Sepmoree, who is in the second place group of 5-under. Nielson, Garrett Phillips and Ellen Davies-Graham, all in second at 5-under, will tee off the first tee at 9:27 a.m.
(Due to the weather forecast, tournament officials decided to move up the final round tee times, splitting the tees as well)
