Rinse and Repeat, Hold The Rain

With day two in the books for Discraft's Great Lakes Open, the play was stellar as the rain held off for the morning round. Starting the day hot, Catrina Allen birdied four of the first six holes. She was able to close the gap between her and Paige Pierce to three strokes through 14 holes. This gap was a manageable deficit. Come back tomorrow, hit your lines, drop some C2 putts, and this is anyone's event to win. Then Paige Pierce closed it out.  She birdied four of the last six holes including a basket hit on hole 15, missing another ESPN moment by inches. Except for an off-target drive on 18 which hit the OB wall to stay in, she was flawless to close out the round.

After Paige's four down, Lisa Fajkus had the second-best round with a two under. When asked about her chances to win, Lisa Fajkus replied, "I'm eight shots behind Paige [Pierce} with one round to go. I have a good shot at second." She went on to explain that Paige can be caught but implied that the field, which is seven or more strokes behind, would need some help. The exciting thing about tomorrow is that Paige Pierce does not know how to play safe golf and we would fully expect her to come out guns blazing and look to put this one away as early as possible.
