Trailing by two with six holes to play, Kupcho boldly went for the green on the par-5 13th that set up eagle.

"I knew I had to post an under-par score to be in contention for Saturday, and it was just exciting to see that I made so many birdies", she said. "I´m so happy for them", Sorenstam said.
Kupucho, fresh off what she called her first "perfect" round, started on the back nine and was cruising along at three-under for the day until her 14th hole, the par-four fifth, where she made her first bogey of the week.
