Remember -- 36 Holes Today!

Just a quick reminder that the LPGA is playing 36 holes today to try and finish their major on time. The Locust Hill course is tight and hilly anyway but as Jerry Foltz said, if they get the sunshine that's predicted today after getting so much rain, the rough will officially be a crop! It's so thick and wet that even the strongest players have been struggling just to get the ball in the fairway.

Morgan PresselIn the final group Morgan Pressel is leading (-6), with Inbee Park and Chella Choi both two behind. Morgan finally appears to have gotten over her wrist injuries and is playing some beautiful iron shots. You'd probably learn a lot just by watching her today.

In the second-to-last group, Sarah Jane Smith, Amy Yang, and Jiyai Shin are tied at -3.

Na Yeon Choi, Catriona Matthew, Sun Young Yoo, Angela Stanford, and Brittany Lincicome are in the group at -2.

There are only 13 players under par, and there is a log jam of big-name players at even par. Included among them are Michelle Wie, Shanshan Feng, Laura Davies, Lexi Thompson, Jessica Korda, and Se Ri Pak. As tough as the course has played and with 36 holes left, none of them is out of it.

The LPGA site is listing GC's broadcast window as 2:30pm - 7:00pm ET, but I suspect they'll have a pre-game show at 2pm and I won't be surprised if the broadcast runs long.

I'm really looking forward to this. It should be a real shootout!
