KLPGA S-OIL Champions Invitational Rd 2

Going into Round 2, the leader was Sun Ju Ahn.  Although Ahn has only won once on tour in 2009, she has been consistently in contention most weeks.  But she had a terrible day on Thursday, making a double bogey, two bogies and a birdie on the front nine.  She recovered somewhat, but still sank to tenth on the leaderboard by the end of the day.

Meanwhile, So Yeon Ryu and Hee Kyung Seo recovered somewhat from their terrible openers, but neither played themselves in contention.  Both shot 70s and are tied at Even par total, in 25th place.

Soo Young Moon made the big move of the day, shooting a 66 to cruise into the top ten.  But the leader after two rounds is one of the biggest names on tour.  He Yong Choi started the day a shot behind Ahn.  But she made five birdies and no mistakes to cruise to 8 under total, which gave her a two shot lead over the relatively unknown Hye Jung Kim.  Choi has struggled much of the year, but now has a golden chance to get her second win of the season and third of her career.  If she does it, she will again tie her arch rival Ryu for career win total.
