Quite a week for local golfers

We should have known David Toms would be in contention for his THIRD title in Memphis. This week has signaled the beginning of golf season on the local level.
Former Byrd and LSU golfer Meredith Duncan makes the cut at the LPGA Championship -- she's currently 9 strokes ahead of Michelle Wie.
Jason Kuperman, another former Byrd star, is in the hunt for the State Am near New Orleans heading into tomorrow's final round. He won the event last year.
Emlyn Aubrey, a former LSU golfer and current Bossier City resident, made his first start in the Nationwide Tour on Thursday.
Kyndall Ardoin, the 15-year-old phenom from Gibsland, finished birdie-eagle-birdie to win a major junior tournament early in the week.
And finally, Toms stands three back of Adam Scott entering Sunday's final round at the Stanford St. Jude Championship. Toms won the event in 2003 and 2004. Considering his history in Memphis, a three-stroke deficit doesn't look bad at all. No matter the outcome tomorrow, it looks like his game is in good shape entering next week's U.S. Open at Oakmont.
Don't forget, the Shreveport City Am is next week at venerable Querbes.
