I was only going to watch for one hour, but they were showing Seung Yeon Lee. So I was obligated to watch her finish. She played pretty steady through out the round. Made three birdies and had plenty of great two putts for par. Had a couple of hiccups on fifteen and sixteen, three putts. But those were her only bogeys. Minus one for the day looked pretty good, seeing all the other scores. Minus three for the Tournament is also great. Hoping she can keep it going, if not that's ok too. She has the chance to have a pretty good Career.
With more to play in round 2, here's where things are now. I think they can get a little more in before they call it a night.

Yoon Kyung Heo makes her caddie beg for forgiveness when he gives a bad read. Fortunately for him, she's having a good day today for the most part!
No third round highlight posted yet. Rough day at the office for Seung Yeon Lee, 79. That isn't all that unexpected, where game is right now.
Good to see Yoon Kyung Heo name on the Leaderboard. Been a long time.
The KLPGA really need two or three golfers to step up. Hye Jin Choi is not playing up to her standards lately. Da Yeon Lee looked like she may be the one. Rookie Ayean Cho played great early, but has fallen back a little. There are others with potential, but need to be more consistent.
The KLPGA definitely runs in cycles, and this seems like a down cycle to me. The big names have had their moments, but have been inconsistent (So Young Lee, Hye Jin Choi). Some are good at getting top tens but not wins (So Yeon Park). Some are way off their game (Ji Hyun Oh, sometimes Cecilia Cho). And some are new and not really at their top level (Ayean Cho and the other rookies). But we've seen that these cycles also trend up, and it wouldn't surprise me to see a bunch of stars emerge next year to start the whole thing again. Three rookie wins so far is a good sign.
Hye Jin Choi is not playing up to her standards lately.
BINGO!!!!! Two years ago, Nelly could not touch Cyborg...now it's completely the opposite. None of these KLPGAers are gonna catch Nelly...I think HoJo has a small chance...otherwise it's OVER.
While the KLPGA has some nice-looking girls and a few interesting characters I'd like to know better, NONE of these players look like world beaters on the golf course. I have grudging admiration for So Young Lee...a sawed-off, cut-rate Charley Hull who punches above her weight...does more with less.
How did Momoka Miura get into one? Maybe the Dubai sheiks are on the selection committee. I knew she would bomb out badly (80-79). Meanwhile, Chie Arimura is not here and she added the QCells logo to her headwear this year.
Nice tournament for Hikaru Yoshimoto, +2 after three rounds...I didn't realize that early this season on the JLPGA she five top-6 finishes during a six tournament stretch...has cooled off a lot since then.
