Rinker Takes Lead As Play Suspended

RSS

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- LPGA veteran Laurie Rinker is the clubhouse leader at 9-under 207 after firing a 7-under-par 65 in the third round of the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament. Rinkers 65, which is one stroke off the tournament record of 64 set by Marilyn Lovander last year, included five-straight birdies on holes 11-15 and leads Brandi Jackson (73-71-66=210, -6) by three strokes
 
The third round was suspended due to darkness at 6:58 p.m. (ET), with 31 players remaining on the golf course. Second-round leader Diana DAlessio, as well as the final four threesomes of second-round leaders, were to return to LPGA Internationals Legends Course at 7:45 a.m. ET Friday to complete their third rounds.

The 130-player field will then be cut to the low 70 players and ties before the final round. The final round will begin at approximately 10 a.m. with players teeing off from the first and 10th tees in groups of three. The leaders will tee off at approximately 12 p.m.

A total of 28 exempt spots on the 2004 LPGA Tour are up for grabs this year, and a sudden-death playoff will be held to determine the 28th spot if needed. The next 35 finishers and ties will earn non-exempt status for 2004.
