Catrina Allen maintained her one-stroke lead on Saturday but the name of the top of the leaderboard was constantly changing throughout the day between Allen, Kona Panis and Holly Finley, all of whom had a share of the outright lead at some point.

Panis and Finley are joined by Heather Young at 2-under par. Young jumped eight spots with the hot round of the day at 2-under to join Sunday’s lead card and enter the conversation.

Finley’s even par round was sparked by a 60-foot birdie putt on the 370-foot hole 7 and upped that with a 150-foot throw-in for par on hole 9.

“I’m feeling pretty good and had some crazy shots today,” Finley said. “I hit a couple of trees, but then had a 150-foot throw-in, I made some 50-foot putts so I kind of surprised myself.

“I got a little nervous at the end, as do a lot of people. I wasn’t looking at the scores, I was just thinking about hitting the lines and making the putts — trying not overthink things.”
