A logjam at the top at the John Deere Classic heading into the final round. Kenny Perry hung tough and ended at -15, tied with Brad Adamonis, and Eric Axley. The course bled red numbers thanks to near perfect scoring conditions. One back was Will MacKenzie and Jay Williamson. Fan favorite MacKenzie's Sybil-like round almost had him out of touch with the leaders until a timely eagle on 17 brought him back to the fold. At round's end there were 18 golfers within 5 shots of the lead. That sort of makes tomorrow a one-day tourney. Of note....amateur Phillip Francis brought in the clubhouse a -7, 65 today. That placed him at -11 overall and very much in contention.
CREAMER LEAD SHRINKS
Paula Creamer's 6 shot lead at the start of the day was shaved by 2 strokes in the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic. Eun-Hee Ji's 68 cut into the deficit to leave her four behind Creamer going into the final round. This is essentially a two woman tournament at this point. The next closest pursuer is Racel Hetherington at-11, 7 strokes off the lead. Creamer better pay attention, Ji's rock steady and a fairway and green machine.
