Yewon Lee - her first missed cut since joining the tour
I think that some of the caddies this week were celebs/maybe famous athletes? A lot of them were identified (for instance, dig Sun Ju Ahn's caddie above -- there were several pix of just him). I'm too lazy to try to figure out who these guys are. There were some pix of fans getting autographs from some of them as well.
Hee Jeong had a great front nine with five birdies. But she made no birdies on the back nine. Even thou her approach shots were a lot better on the back nine. She had at least six good looks at birdie on the back nine. Hit decent putts but none of them found the hole,
Min Ji Park putting was off, she missed some putts that she usually make. Her ball striking were great the entire round. However she saved the best for last with the hole out for Eagle on eighteen.
Ga Young Lee also had five birdies on the front nine. But had only one on the back nine.
Yewon Lee needs to break out of her slump. She missed a short par putt on eighteen which dropped her to even par. As it turned out minus one missed the cut anyway.
I noticed that Ji Hyun Kim had an oversized putter grip. Her putting has kept her from a lot better career.
She reminds me of one of my favorite golfers Sophie Gustafsson. She had a good career but would have been better if not for her putting. The last time I saw her, her putter grip was so big she could hardly fit her hand around it.
So far, it has been a rare bad week for the rookies. The only ones close to the lead are two of the less accomplished: Uhjin Seo, who is just out of the top ten, and Da Na Kang 2, whose best finish this year has been a 34th, and who has missed more cuts than she's made. Meanwhile, Yewon Lee, Jeongmin Moon and Ye Been Sohn all missed the cut, while Ina is well back (although she did have a great back nine today to fight her way into the cut).
Ji Hyun Oh has played awesomely on this admittedly easyish course (this is the kind of course where you can struggle if your putter is not on, but it doesn't seem super tough tee-to-green). Yet they didn't seem to take any pix of her; I couldn't find any, anyways. But here are her highlights (shared with a few others):
Hee Jeong Lim had a great first twenty seven holes ten under. But only had four birdies one bogey her last twenty seven. However she only had two bogeys for the Tournament. She just didn't make enough of the midrange birdie putts. Still she rescued her round with three birdies back nine for a top five.
