Can't find any pics of MHL (+4), although I can't blame the shutterbugs this time.
Jeeno (below) is tied for best am with Yasuda at +1.
Hye Jin Choi (+1)...I dunno, I'm just not impressed these days. We were told she was playing a "Korean mountain" course at Evian last week, but she finished +2, T-49. Sure, she has four KLPGA wins in 2019...but she also has finishes of 24th, 25th, 26th, 35th and 47th...maybe she's bored in the minor leagues. I can't prove this, but I'm convinced the amateur I followed three times in 2016-17 was a better player over the 2019 version. She could have turned pro the day after Bedminster, gate-crashed the LPGA and obliterated everyone...I really believe that. It doesn't look that way now.
Hye Jin has definitely had an up and down season. When she's on her game she's incredible, but, like Sung Hyun Park in her LPGA rookie year, she has a surprising number of unimpressive weeks, too. The key stat is scoring average: Choi is something like .4 strokes worse this season than last.
Great to see some of my favorites doing well today. The course is looking beautiful, and it looks like there are some good crowds, too.
Jin Young had a couple of horror holes, including a four putt (!), yet still shot a 68. If she just tightens the screws, watch out! Lucky Six was also great today, and In Gee had some nice short game moments, even with a couple of short par misses coming in.
Inbee, So Yeon and Hye Jin are still not getting the job done, alas, and will have some work to do to make the cut.
They gave up on Fassi a few holes in, which was a relief, because her day was not pretty.
I didn't expect Lydia to continue to dominate like she did early in her career, but wow... she is really in the weeds right now. DFL? She played decently at the Dow a few weeks ago, I thought she might have a good showing at these two Majors. It's really weird.
So Yeon is having another adventure right now, but she's still hwaiting hard. She ran up to -1, but now is back to +1...
So Yeon has hung around that cut line too many times and made it. Because she was able to rescue her round on the back nine. The opposite happened this time after getting to minus one. She had three bogeys on the back nine to finish at plus two. The projected cut line is even, minus one may sneak in, not minus two. I hope she stays and spend time practicing with her driver. I am pretty sure, from what I have seen following her. When she start driving left, that's when she struggles.
