Freaky Time at the LPGA Leaderboard

What is the cut at the Founders Cup?

This is a good question. You see, the +2 players are listed as T63 and the +3s are listed at T78.

However, the leader at -12, Angela Stanford, is listed as being in second place. Brittany Lincicome, her closest competition at -9, is listed as being in third place. And so it goes. Hmmmm...

In either case, it's good news for both Jiyai Shin and Yani Tseng. They've had a disastrous week and sit at +2. Worst case, they should both still make it!

At any rate, here's your Top 9, who are about the only ones who have a chance to win unless Stanford stumbles Sunday (par is 72):
  • -12: Angela Stanford (66, 66)
  • -9: Brittany Lincicome (67, 68)
  • -8: Mindy Kim (69, 67)
  • -7: Cristie Kerr (69, 68)
  • -6: Karrie Webb (71, 67); Seon Hwa Lee (69, 69); Mina Harigae (68, 70)
  • -5: Paula Creamer (69, 70); Sun Young Yoo (69, 70)
As you can see, the course has taken its toll. Several players who were in contention, like Juli Inkster and Sophie Gustafson, got hammered with over-par rounds and took a tumble down the leaderboard on Saturday. More than a few missed the cut entirely.

At any rate, Golf Channel's Founders Cup coverage is live. So if you get bored with NCAA ball games, you can flip over and catch the final round at 7pm ET.

Maybe the LPGA will have the leaderboard fixed by then. It would be nice to have an outright winner. ;-)


  1. Yes as with many things on that website it takes them several attemps to get right.

    The think that bothers me most is last year we were able to see how many greens a player hit and how many puts a player had as the round unfolded, now it's nowhere to be found. If you press the players name on the scoreboard you get the scorecard but all the other information is unavailable.

  2. I noticed that too. Maybe they'll get that straightened out as the year goes on.
