I started watching just in time to see Ha Neul and Chae Young Yoon play number one. Bo-Mee Lee out drove Ayaka Furue and Hikaru Yoshimoto on the first hole. They must be really short off the tee. Bo-Mee hit it stiff but the broadcast ended before she putted. Bo-Mee made her birdie on one, Ha Neul made on birdie two, Chae Young made bogey on two.
I noticed this in yesterday's coverage but it seems that after they finish the 9th hole they seem to have a half hour break in the clubhouse, yesterday i noticed Furue actually went back to the putting green for about 20 minutes. Is this just a JLPGA thing as it would prolong the round to over 5hrs if that was the case!
The broadcast cut out the first two playoff holes ... I assume they played the par-4 18th over and over. By the third time, they had already cut a new hole far to the right and away from the water. That certainly helped bring the day to a rapid conclusion as Ayaka Furue's approach rolled over the hole and ticked off the flag, leaving her a tap in.
It's a drag that one of the Sisters didn't pull it off, but great week for them anyways! Four in the top six, and Bo Mee had her first top three in forever. Best of the year for Sky, too, I think. Keep on hwaiting!!!
