Today proved God doesn't care if you set off an F-bomb on live television. For He commanded the player's ball to bounce off the water in front of the 18th green to allow her to make the cut on the nose.
The Golf Channel did have the decency to run overtime to show leader Patty T. finishing her round.
This was actually a fun round. Inbee and Jin Young played together with Stacy Lewis. Both top Korean stars were not at their best, but it was inspirational to see them dig deep and make clutch par saves and shots when they needed to. That bodes well, since both of them are due to have a great round or two at some point.
Mirim has been impressive so far in her title defense. She managed yet another chip-in today, which is almost becoming her signature move. I thought it was a bit unfair for Grant (?) to repeat several times how "lucky" Mirim was last year. He seemed to realize it and apologized, sort of, by pointing out that Mirim thought so, too. But so what? I've never once heard them talk about how lucky Karrie Webb's hole out was the year she won. They can set the discussion about the event based on what they choose to focus on, and focusing on how 'lucky' Lee was is unfair to her, just like focusing on the wall was.
The other nice small move was Lee 6 to 3 under. She's almost in this; if she takes advantage of moving day tomorrow, she could still surprise. But In Gee Chun missed the cut. Coming into this week, I really felt like fate was preparing us for a great comeback story from her. Oh well, hopefully she can regroup and continue to impress in a few weeks.
Great round. So happy for Shanshan. I'm just so gutted over Ingee. That back 9 was a real roller coaster. 4 birdies in a row and thought she'd be good to make the cut... ouch. I really thought she had a good shot here this week. Unfortunately, didn't see her play much so not sure what the deal is.. from the numbers, looks like the issue was with her approaches. Or maybe the DQ messed with her head. Lol, guess I was just wrong. Hope she pulls it back together.
For the weekend, I'd most like to see JYK show the world why she's #1.
I finally saw Leona on the broadcast. It’s looks like she has Stacy Lewis’s fashion consultant.
Maguire outpointed Lewis at the 2020 Scottish Open ... which wasn't difficult to do.
You’re too good at this.
I understand if an American is unexpectedly in the lead. But they know when they’ll be on TV on Thursday or Friday. Try a patterned shirt or two toned shoes. I can’t believe this is an international television entertainment product sometimes.
Nice round for Yui Kawamoto four birdies and one bogey, She did turn her par five scores around by making birdie on three of them. At tie for twelve, a top five is durable.
Gabrielle Ruffels is having a good start as a Pro Golfer. She had four birdies and an Eagle for minus two and twenty six tie. She had a tie for thirty six her first LPGA start and fourth place tie on the Symetra Tour.
I meant the third round pairing that no two Koreans are paired together. Inbee Park is at 1:15 and Jin Young is at 1:05 third round.
Ha, I don't think there's anything shady. A lot of ties, but it looks roughly like like the players with better score Friday got the later times, as it should be. Not sure what they use when that's tied too. Ranking or alphabetical I think.
