What If Someone Shoots Another 64?

After Jiyai Shin shot a 64 in the third round of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, she served notice to all the leaders that there might be another low score out there today. And that leaves the event wide open.

Danielle Kang and Chella Choi

Danielle Kang and Chella Choi lead this major at -10, but neither has won a major before. In fact, they have only one regular win between them. If they stumble at all today, there will be some experienced players ready to take advantage.

At -8 and -7, we have Jiyai Shin and defending champ Brooke Henderson, respectively. Both are major winners, both have several wins, and both are well within striking distance.

At -6 we have Sei Young Kim and Amy Yang. Neither has a major but both have won regular events before.

And behind them at -5 are no less than ten players -- a combination of experienced major winners like Lexi Thompson, Michelle Wie and So Yeon Ryu, along with a variety of girls still looking for their first wins.

Kang and Choi have played very well all week, but we all know how final round pressure can affect even the most experienced competitors. I think it's fair to give Shin and Henderson the advantage during today's round. You would expect them to rise to the occasion.

But then, I also would have expected Ariya Jutanugarn, Charley Hull and Cristie Kerr to make the cut, which they didn't. Olympia Fields is living up to expectations, and we could very well see a first-time winner today.

I'm thinking the LPGA will be the best bet if you want an exciting finish today. So if you're interested, remember that coverage starts at 3pm ET on NBC.
