Gaby Lopez leads for the first time in an LPGA tournament round, her 8-under 63 score was her career low and enough to put her on top of the heap by 1 stroke. The Walmart NW Arkansas Championships is being played at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers Arkansas, home of the Arkansas Razorbacks.
Gaby Lopez is a homegrown talent as she was an Arkansas Razorback in her college days and now is in her 3rd year in the LPGA, hopefully she can sustain her good game and be able to go all the way to the finish and bag her 1st win. Winning her first tournament at home would be a very sweet prospect for Gaby.
Hot on Gaby’s trail is the older half of the vaunted Jutanugarn sisters, Moriya is gunning for her second win for the year and Gaby needs to put her A game throughout the tournament to hopefully keep Moriya at bay.
