Stephanie Gilmore reclaimed the yellow jersey by winning the Corona Open J-Bay, Friday in South Africa. Gilmore (right) topped Lakey Peterson (left) in the final to earn her third event win of the season. Gilmore and Peterson are in a tight race with Tatiana Weston-Webb still in contention in third place.
