2009 Korean women’s Open rd 2

In round 2, a couple of unexpected golfers rocketed up the leaderboard.  The most explosive round was turned in by Bo Mi Lee. She had five birdies on the front nine, added three more on the back, and finished with her lone bogey to shoot a sizzling 65 that put her at 9 under total.  This gave the relatively unknown player a three shot lead over the field.

Hye In Lee, a player known primarily for her long legs before this, had a similar beginning to her round.  She shot 4 under on the front and a 67 to move to 6 under and a tie for second.

 

Also tied for second is Bo Kyung Kim, who turned in her second straight 69.

Among the stars, Hee Kyung Seo turned in a respectable 71, and now sits at 3 under.  But whereas she started the day two shots out of the lead, she now has a six shot deficit to make up if she wants to claim her first Major.

Ha Neul Kim shot a 69 and sits at 2 under, but So Yeon Ryu had a disastrous day, plummeting to 3 over total after a 75.  She is now 12 shots out of the lead.  Better luck next year!

One more round to go.  Can Bo Mi Lee hang in there and win her first event?  Or will one of those players behind her put on a charge?
