Pressel family has twin bill Sunday


RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – The Pressel family is rooting doubly hard Sunday.

While Morgan Pressel begins the final round four shots back at the Kraft Nabisco Championship, her younger sister, Madison, begins the final round of the Ping/ASU Invitational tied for the lead with UCLA’s Stephanie Kono. Madison is a sophomore at Texas.

Morgan Pressel’s short game could prove an asset in Sunday’s final round with the winds gusting to 30 mph at Mission Hills. Remarkably, Pressel enters the final round tied for 59th in hitting greens in regulation but is third on the leaderboard. She’s scrambling hard and leads the field in total putts while being tied for second in putts per greens in regulation.
