GLADSTONE — Morgan Pressel inched closer to her first LPGA Tour win since 2008, posting two very different victories Saturday to reach the semifinals of the Sybase Match Play Championship.
Pressel rallied from two down with three holes to play to stun No. 2 ranked Na Yeon Choi in the morning and rolled over Anna Nordqvist of Sweden in the afternoon quarterfinal at the Hamilton Farm Golf Club.
Pressel will face former NCAA champion Azahara Munoz in one of the semifinals Sunday morning, while American Vicky Hurst and Candie Kung will square off in the other match in this upset-marked tournament. The championship is Sunday afternoon.
Of the four players left, Pressel is the highest seed at No. 15. Munoz and Hurst have never won an LPGA event.
