KLPGA: Shinsegae KLPGA Championship rd 2

In round 2, the low scores continued to flow.  The scores were so low that it was hard to make up a lot of ground.  For instance, Sun Ju Ahn, the third ranked player in the legaue, started the day back in 45th place.  She shot a blistering 65 in round two to vault to 8 under total, yet that still only left her in a tie for 7th.

The co-leader after the second round was a relatively unknown player who shot a second straight great round to vault to the top.  Yoon Hee Jo had shot a 67 in round one, and continued that pace with her own 65 in round 2.  Her round 2 consisted of 7 birdies and no mistakes, and her total ended up 12 under after two rounds.

Joining her at the top was one of the two co-leaders from round one, Jung Eun Lee 5.  Lee shot a second straight 66 to also sit at 12 under.  She has already won this year, so watch out for her to possibly be a factor on day three.

But just a shot behind those leaders is another of day one’s co-leaders, Hee Kyung Seo.  The KLPGA superstar shot a 67 to finish with an 11 under total.  Seo had a minor slump in the middle of the season, and is looking for her first win since capturing the year’s first Major, the Korean Women’s Open, back in May.  Look for her to apply tons of pressure in round three in her quest for the Slam.

Among other stars, Ha Neul Kim is at -7, tied for 12th, while So Yeon Ryu is tied for 17th at 6 under.  Either of them would require a phenomenal final round to be a factor, but stranger things have happened.
