Putting problems at Saucon Valley


BETHLEHEM, Pa. – The hills and valleys running through the greens at Saucon Valley are making for some adventurous putting.

Kristy McPherson watched her 30-foot putt race off the eighth green, though she holed a 12-footer coming back from just off the fringe.

“Does that count as a two-putt or one-putt?” McPherson asked.

McPherson’s a good putter, ranking seventh among LPGA pros this season in putts per green in regulation.

Morgan Pressel four-putted the 16th green from 40 feet.

“I almost five-putted,” she said.

Juli Inkster had four three-putts in the first round, two in the second.
