KLPGA: Nefs Masterpiece Rd 2

Coming into round 2, the two players tied for the lead, Sun Ju Ahn and HJ Choi, had both led the previous week’s tournament at some point, only to lose to So Yeon Ryu.  Would they be able to win this time?  Or would Ryu continue her amazing win streak?

Both leaders did decently in round two, but it was not enough for them to maintain their leads.  In fact, they both shot identical 70s to finish the day at 8 under, one shot back.  Two different players passed them for the new lead in round two.

The most amazing round of the day was turned in by LPGA Major winner Inbee Park.  Since collecting the US Women’s Open win last year, Park has struggled to find her game again.  She certainly had no troubles on this day.  She went out in 33, but it was on the back nine where she really sizzled.  There she collected five more birdies to card a blistering 31 and 64 total.  Inbee finds herself atop the leaderboard, tied with KLPGA player Bo Mi Lee, who shot a 67 herself.

Meanwhile, So Yeon Ryu’s quest to win four straight hit a snag.  She didn’t play badly, shooting a 70 to move to 2 under.  But she is now 7 shots back with just one round to go.  Unless she does what Inbee did in round 2, it’s likely her win streak will come to an end.

Hee Kyung Seo also shot a 70 to move to 4 under, five shots back, while Ha Neul Kim had a good round to move to 1 under total.  Vicky Hurst shot a 72 but still missed the cut.
