2009 Woori Securities Ladies Championship rd 1

This week’s KLPGA event is the Woori Securities Ladies Championship, which takes place from June 5th – 7th.  The defending champion, Ji Yai Shin, is currently playing on the LPGA at the State Farm Classic, so we will be crowning a new champion at the end of the week.

Coming into this week, the new big gun on tour, Hee Kyung Seo, had been having a few bad tournaments.  Last week she didn’t even finish in the top 20, rare for her.  But she got out to a great start this week, shooting a 68 to finish a shot out of the lead after round one.  She is tied with three other players, all of whom have won on tour before: Hyun Hee Moon, Aram Cho and Bo Kyung Kim.

The leader, however, is Bo Mi Lee, who shot a 67.  Lee is quietly having a pretty good year, although she is still looking for her breakthrough win.  She had six birdies and a single bogey in her round; perhaps this will be her week?

Among the other stars, So Yeon Ryu shot a 70 and is tied for 13th, while Sun Ju Ahn shot a 69.  Ha Neul Kim continues to struggle, shooting a 74 which put her in a tie for 60th.
