KLPGA: 2010 Lotte Mart Open Rd 2

Round two of three is complete at this year’s Lotte Mart Open.  Perhaps the most surprising result so far has been a player who has been doing very badly.  So Yeon Ryu came into this event the leading money winner on tour; but after a first round 75, she found herself with work to do just to make the cut.  Well, that won’t be happening this week.  In round two she had an abysmal 80, which included one stretch where she was 8 over par for five holes.  This is probably the single worst round of golf she has played since joining the KLPGA tour.  It is in fact her first missed cut in 46 starts since joining the KLPGA.  Hopefully she will be able to shake it off before the year’s first Major, the Korean Women’s Open, which is coming up soon.

The league’s other superstar had a considerably better second round.  Hee Kyung Seo climbed as high as 6 under total (4 under for the day), before a later bogey knocked her down to her final score of 5 under.  Still, that was good enough for a tie for second place.

The big mover of the day was LPGA starlet Sun Young Yoo.  Yoo started the day at 3 over par, but shot a sizzling 5 under 67 to move from 36th to tie for 8th at 2 under total.  The leader, however, remains Hyun Joo Lee.  Lee shot a solid 70 to move to 6 under par, giving her a one shot lead over Seo and two other players.

Those two others currently in second are second year star Soo Jin Yang and rookie Yoon Kyung Hur.  Neither player has won before on tour, so tomorrow could be a big day for one of them.

Sung Ah Yim shot a 71 and is at 3 under, tied for fifth.

Tomorrow decides it all!
