KLPGA: 2010 KB Star Tour Finale Rd 2

Round 2 of the KLPGA’s final Major of 2010 started with two of the top players in the league tied for the lead.  They would continue to be tied for the lead by the end of the day, joined at the top by another strong player with an LPGA win to her credit.  Meanwhile, several other top stars moved into position to make this a truly memorable weekend.

Shin Ae Ahn and Bo Mee Lee both followed their blistering first round 64s with fairly solid 69s.  Lee had five birdies and two bogies, while Ahn had 4 birdies and one bogey.  A win at this event for either player could be enough to make her the favorite for several of the KLPGA’s year end awards.

The third player to join them at the top is Sung Ah Yim.  Yim won an event on the LPGA in 2006, but recently lost her card on tour and decided to return to Korea full time.  She shot a 65 in round 1 and followed that with a 68 in round 2, to join Ahn and Lee at 11 under total.

Another superstar had a fantastic second round to put herself squarely in the hunt.  So Yeon Ryu has not won on tour since last December, and has never won a Major.  She shot a sizzling 65 on day two to move to 10 under, just a shot behind the three leaders.

Meanwhile, defending champion Hee Kyung Seo sits at 8 under after a second round 68, which was identical to her first round score.  She is tied for 5th at the moment.
