KLPGA: 2009 KB Star Tour Grand Finale Rd 2

Amateur Hana Jang has had a great run in her last two professional events.  After notching a 3rd place finish in her last start, at the Hite Cup, she started this week’s event by capturing the solo lead.

Jang continued with her brilliance in round 2, if anything solidifying her position over the field.  She shot a 4 under par 68 to zoom to 10 under and maintain her lead.  That was a four shot lead over every other player in the field, except one…

Unfortunately for Jang, that one player who is still close is also the top player on the KLPGA tour, Hee Kyung Seo.  Seo has a lot on the line this week.  If she wins here, she will become only the second player in history to win three KLPGA Majors in a single year.  The other player?  Jiyai Shin, who is currently the #2 player in the world (and whom Seo beat last week at the previous Major).  Seo shot a flawless 6 under 66, no bogies, six birdies, to move to 9 under, just a shot behind Jang.  The heat will certainly be on the teen amateur if she is going to win this weekend.

Among the other top KLPGA stars in the field, So Yeon Ryu moved to 12th thanks to a 69, and now sits at 4 under, six shots back.  Tied with her at that position are Ha Neul Kim and He Yong Choi.  Sun Ju Ahn, however, is struggling after shooting a 74 in round two.

The top LPGA player in the field is Kyeong Bae, who produced a 71 to move to 1 under total.  Inbee Park is at 1 over.

Two more rounds to go; this is shaping up to be a classic!
