A Yean Cho and Hee Jeong Lim has work to do to make the cut. A Yean had a terrible front nine of seven over. She made three early birdies on the back nine, but made bogey on sixteen and eighteen.
Hee Jeong Lim putting let her down again. However a double bogey and a bogey on two par fives really hurt. Maybe her injury has something to do with it.
What has been a pattern for Jeong Eun Lee6 are bogeys on seventeen or eighteen. She bladed her third shot from the back fringe on eighteen. So instead of saving par, she made a double bogey. Finishing better is something she need to improve.
Six has not played all that well so far since the KLPGA season started. I'm wondering if she's having a hard time motivating herself to play KLPGA events, since she so recently moved to the LPGA and did all that work to learn English. Anyways, with luck she'll get into a groove of some sort soon.
Don't know what to make of Ayean Cho. She did really well at the Korea Women's Open just a couple of weeks ago, but here she is again in the dumps. Sophomore blues?
Nice to see Yoon Kyung Heo on a leaderboard. Can she back it up in round 2?
Tired of Hye Jin Choi group. They showed them about seventy percent of the time yesterday. They are not only showing almost all their tee shots. They keep showing them walking down the fairway. Enough is enough, there are other golfers that's playing better.
Wood Chopper has the Charlie Lau one-arm release on her approach shots. Not that it's hurting her, she's -5 with two holes remaining. Today is her rare deviation from slacks to a skort ensemble:
EE Ga Young was on the Round Two broadcast ... and she made four birdies ... and she went backwards. At Even overall, she'll have an early wake-up call Sunday. Oh, and she wore a skirt outfit, maybe for the first time ever ... no pictures, of course.
Ji Hyun Oh and Song Yi Ahn are among those who dropped out in round 2. Min Sun Kim sits on top looking for her first win in a while. A bunch of rookies breathing down her neck, including Se Lin Hyun, who shot a 65 today. Hye Jin Choi and So Young Lee loom heavily three back.
