Redman eagles 18th for share of LPGA Tour lead

Michele Redman holed out from 126 yards for an eagle on the

par-4 18th hole Saturday for a 4-under 68 and a share of the

third-round lead in the CVS/pharmacy LPGA Challenge with Spain’s

Beatriz Recari and South Korea’s Ilhee Lee.

Redman, who had a double bogey on the par-3 16th, hit an 8-iron

approach that landed 16 feet from the pin, then rolled into the cup

as the crowd cheered. Redman pumped her fist and smiled, then

retrieved her ball and tossed it into the crowd.

Lee also shot a 68, and Recari had a 70 to match Redman at 12

under on the Blackhawk Country Club course. Wendy Ward (69) and

France’s Gwladys Nocera (71) were 11 under.
