Creekmore from Dallas, used great scoring conditions to take the lead by 3 over Marian Barker. Birdies on three of the opening five holes saw Creekmore jump out to any early lead.
A bogey on the 431 yard par five sixth didn’t slow her momentum as she added two more birdies on the tenth and thirteenth, to reach 4-under through 13. Two bogies on sixteen and eighteen however brought her back to the field and holds a three shot lead headed into the final day.
18 hole co-leader, Marian Barker from Lubbock shot a two-over par 73 and remains close with Creekmore. Despite only one birdie on the day, Barker’s card only featured three bogies. Only three back, Barker will continue to press Creekmore, as the two will be playing together along with Becky Neal.
