YouTube has a few 30-minute videos from Round Two. I don't know if they'll allow LIVE 1st hole videos for the weekend ... if they do, here are the times (Japan time):
Sat. - 8:20 thru 11:15 AM
Sun. - 7:30 thru 10:15 AM
BTW, Lala Anai was a DQ for violating rule 4.1a. Per Google mush from Nikkan Sports:
She was disqualified for using Lala Anai (33 = GOLF5) for a "non-conforming club". Play with the sticker on the driver's club face for ballistic measurement. She had finished the second round of the day, but she had doubts about the use of the driver and confirmed with the competition committee. She turned out she was in breach of the rules and she was disqualified.
While I wasn't looking, someone had a LIVE feed posted on YouTube, but the TBS broadcast company in Japan slammed the lid on it right away. Meanwhile, I will set my alarm for 2 AM ... we'll see if my TBS link has the golf for Round Three ... I'm positive it will work for Round Four.
Per the tourney website, the 1st hole is a par-4 hole of 380 yards. Either they moved the tee WAY up or we have a couple of lucky players on Saturday as Mika Miyazato and Mone Inami made eagle-two on it.
Reika Usui on Saturday ... don't play a money game against her ... 77-66-made the cut.
The TBS broadcast stream worked perfectly this AM. Saigo is built like a slightly bigger NASA and played the same, until she four-putted the 17th green. Saigo only parred the par-5 18th, while many of the chasers made birdie and eagle there, so we officially have a horse race for Sunday.
The TBS broadcast started with Koiwai and Saigo rolling in birdie bombs at #14, for a three-way tie at the top with Morita. After that, it was Koiwai who made no mistakes, while Morita dunked her drive at #15 and Saigo chunked a chip at #17 and pulled her second shot into a stand of trees at #18.
