2009 KLPGA KB Star Tour #1 Rd 1

The current event on the KLPGA tour is the first of the KB Star Tour events this year.  This one takes place from May 8 – 10th at the Hampyong Dynasty course.  The big news is Hee Kyung Seo, who is attempting to win her third consecutive event on the KLPGA tour.  To my knowledge, no one has ever managed to win three straight twice in their career (Seo has already done this once before), so this would be quite a feather in her cap if she could pull it off.

Round one is finished, and there aren’t a lot of top stars in the mix right now.  The leader is Shin Ae Ahn, who shot a 6 under par 66.  She has a two shot lead over three golfers, including Sun Ju Ahn.

Seo got off to a slow start, shooting a 73 to put her seven shots back.  But considering she made up six shots in one round last week, she is far from out of it right now.

Most of the other stars were in the same range.  Ha Neul Kim shot an even par 72, while He Yong Choi, So Yeon Ryu and Ran Hong all shot 73s like Seo did.

Two more rounds to go…  Will one of the stars seize control of the tournament, or will this be a week where an unknown triumphs?
