KLPGA: KB Star Tour #2 Rd 2

The birdies flew in round two.  Top stars Hee Kyung Seo and So Yeon Ryu made big runs up the leaderboard, but first round lead Min Ji Song was not budging an inch.  Who would have the lead by the end of the day?

Ryu tried her best to knock Song off her pins.  The league’s top player started with four birdies in her first five holes to make a statement right from the get go.  She would wind up shooting a blistering 7 under par 66 to vault to 10 under par total.  Pretty great, but not quite enough.

Hee Kyung Seo, the league’s second ranked player, did nearly as well.  Her round had six birdies and a bogey for a 68 that moved her to 9 under total.  Both giants are right in the hunt, but neither was in the lead.

Another great player, third ranked Sun Ju Ahn, kept pace with the fireworks.  She shot her own 68, moving her to 10 under total.  But she wasn’t in the lead at the end of the day, either.

No, the leader after round 2 was the same player who led after round one: Min Ji Song.  Song had six birdies on the day but no errors, and shot a 6 under par 67 for the second straight day to move to 12 under total.  So, she has the lead, but just two shots ahead of Ahn and Ryu and just 3 shots over Seo.  That is quite an intimidating array of talent breathing down her neck.
