TGC opted to begin taping a couple of hours before airtime and that’s the coverage that’s being shown right now (3:00pm EDT). They are conceding that the final round will not be completed today, but haven’t said whether they will be covering the conclusion of the event on Monday.
The cut came at +3 and three big names missed it – Paula Creamer (+4), Natalie Gulbis (+4) and Julieta Granada (+12). Curt Byrum mentioned that Natalie fell prior to teeing off and didn’t seem to be striking the ball solidly as a result. No word on any specific injury, though.
Lpga.com is still reporting the final round will begin at 1:45pm local time (3:45pm EDT).
