RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Four golfers hold a share of the lead entering Sunday's final round of the Eagle Classic at Richmond Country Club.
California's Jenny Gleason held sole possession of the lead entering Saturday's second round and while she didn't play as well as she did on Friday, it was good enough to maintain a tie at the top. Gleason shot -1 for the day and is tied with Jenny Suh, Brooke Pancake and Paolo Moreno at -6 for the tournament.
Suh, a Virginia native, shot a two-under par for the round to earn a share of the lead, while Pancake shot -3 for the second round. Moreno put together the most impressive performance, however, as she entered the day at even par after the first day, and soared into a share of the lead with a six-under par performance. The lead group is ahead of the pack by two strokes.
Several golfers with local ties took part, but failed to make the cut. Chesterfield's Lyberty Anderson shot ten-over par for the two day event, but the rising junior at Manchester High School says that she enjoyed her experience and hopes to return next year. Leah Wigger, a former star at the University of Virginia, also shot +10 for the event. Wigger is now an assistant coach at the University of North Carolina. Charlottesville's Whitney Neuhauser also missed the cut, shooting six-over par.
The final round of the Eagle Classic tees off at 7:45am on Sunday morning.
