- Gerina Piller shot a four-under par 67 to hold off an raft of South Korean challengers and take a two-stroke lead after 54 holes of the LPGA Tour Texas Shootout. Piller shot her second straight bogey-free round for a 14-under par total of 199. Five South Koreans are among the players hot on her heels, including Amy Yang and Hur Mi-Jung -- who share second on 201. "I felt like I gave myself opportunities," Piller said. "Had some great shots, just couldn't get some putts to fall. These greens are pretty tricky and they have a lot of slope to them so you definitely have to give them respect."
