KLPGA: KB Star Tour #2 Rd 1

This week the KLPGA is contesting the second of three KB Star tour events on the schedule.  The event runs from Spetember 4 – 6th.  The course is a par 73 thanks to a (rare) par 6 hole, the ninth.

As usual, the focus of attention as round one started was on the two top players on tour, So Yeon Ryu and Hee Kyung Seo.  This time, the powers that be decided to pair the two stars together in round one for added excitement.

Both players had good days, with Seo coming out with the better score.  Hee Kyung shot a 4 under par 69, while Ryu produced a 70.  Both are in the top 15, but neither is in the lead.

The leader after round one is relatively unknown golfer Min Ji Song.  She shot a 6 under par 67, six birdies and no bogies.

Right behind her are two top players, Soo Young Moon and Sun Ju Ahn.  Sun Ju in particular has been playing well all year, and is probably a win or two away from seizing control of the Player of the Year race.  Seo and Ryu had better watch their backs!

Among other notable players, Ha Neul Kim had a good start with a 70, tied for 11th.  Super rookie Soo Jin Yang shot a 2 under par 71.
