KLPGA: 2010 Orient China Ladies Open Rd 2

KLPGA superstar Hee Kyung Seo started round 2 with a two shot lead.  She and her chief rival So Yeon Ryu, who started the day two shots back, both played the morning session on this day.  Seo was not having the best of days, and for a while she was one over par for the round.  Since Ryu was one under, that left them tied at the top of the leaderboard at 3 under early on.

Eventually, Seo made two birdies and climbed to 5 under, where she finished her day with a 71.  Ryu also shot a 71 to finish at 3 under, still in second, still two shots behind Seo.  Ryu has not won a tournament in a while, whereas Seo won the previous event on tour, the ADT-CAPS.  So Ryu will doubtless be hungry on Saturday to make a statement and capture the first event of the new season right out from under Seo.  Should be a great battle between the two!

Another KLPGA star also shot a 71 and sits tied with Ryu at 3 under: Jung Eun Lee.  Although she has not won nearly as often as the other two players, don’t ignore her!  She could pull off a surprising upset.

The Chinese are doing pretty well right now, with two players in the top five.  The surprise of the day is amateur Jiayun Li, who turned in a sizzling 67 to move to fifth place, just four shots behind Seo.  No doubt the home crowd would love to see her win this event!
