2021 Ledgestone Insurance Open Round Three FPO Recap

Saturday, August 7, 2021

The big story: Paige Pierce extended her Ledgestone FPO tournament lead to nine strokes with a -7 round Saturday morning at  Sunset Hills DGC in Pekin. The margin could have been even larger if not for a couple of miscues on the back nine that resulted in bogeys on the 12th and 17th holes.

Pierce on her round: “The wind picked up on the back nine and that’s more what I would consider the story. The front nine felt very smooth and the back nine we were starting to think about disc changes and stuff because of the wind.”

The hot round: Defending Ledgestone champ Catrina Allen led the way with a 1003-rated -8 round of 53, a five-stroke improvement over her result Friday. Allen’s hot round moved her into a tie for fourth at -7 for the tournament.

Allen on her round : “It just felt a little better today. I don’t know if it was less wind or just the card was really grooving or what. Golf just felt easier today.”
