KLPGA: 2009 Hill State Seoul Kyeongjae Open Rd 2

Note that this tournament has traditionally been called the Hill State Seokyung Open, and is still called that in some articles.  However, the KLPGA website refers to it as the Hill State Seoul Kyongjae Open, and so will I from here on out. 

In round one, superstar So Yeon Ryu found herself just a shot out of the lead, despite having played more golf than anyone else on tour in the previous week’s event.  In round two, it didn’t take her long to seize the lead.  After 10 holes she was three under for the day, 7 under for the tournament, and had a one stroke lead over the field.

That’s the way Ryu finished, but she would not be in the lead at the end of the day.  Another name from last week’s match play would take care of that.  Hyun Joo Lee had surprised everyone last week by beating both Ha Neul Kim and Ran Hong en route to a final four appearance, despite being ranked 63 at the start of the week.  Lee was positioned at 6 under just behind Ryu when she went on a tear, birdieing four of her final five holes to finish the day at 10 under.  This gave her a three shot lead with one round to go.

Among those tied for third at 6 under are 2009 tour winner Sun Ju Ahn and Hye Youn Kim.  But other stars are well back.  He Yong Choi had a second straight 73 and sits in 26th place.  Ha Neul Kim and Hee Kyung Seo are both tied for 56th at 5 over par.

Can the Cinderella who just missed the glass slipper last week get the job done now?  Or will the star who won last week deny her again?  One more round to go!
