Ricoh British Womens Open 2nd Round, Finally.

Flag_-_Great_Britain

It may have been the Best Of British Day at Hoylake when the second round finally got completed in the Ricoh British Open at Royal Liverpool, but it was a South Korean who stole the show, namely Jiyai Shin.

 Jiyai Shin carded a superb eight under par 64 to move into a commanding five shot lead after the second round of the Ricoh Women’s British Open at Royal Liverpool. The 2008 Champion started the day a single shot behind her compatriots, Haeji Kang and So Yeon Ryu, but then moved effortlessly through the front nine in 31 strokes and then came home in 33 to leave the rest of the strong international field trailing in her wake, with a tournament total of -9 under par. Jiyai said that could have the best round of her life;

” That might well be the best round I have ever played. I hit a nine under par round when I won last week at Kingsmill, but this is a really tough course so this round might have been even better. Today I was bogey-free and bunker free. I hit all 18 greens and missed just one fairway. This week my goal was to score one under par every day so to hit eight under is very special.I love coming back over here. The win here in 2008 changed my life and I have got lots of fans in England. Today there were a lot of people out there and they kept cheering me on. It has been a fantastic day and I’m looking forward to tomorrow. I have got a five shot lead but on this course you never know what’s going to happen. There are a lot of great players out here. I’m just going to keep focussed on myself.”

Another South Korean is alone in second place, Inbee Park is at -4 under par for the tournament, but will need to play some magical golf to catch the leader. The final two rounds will played tomorrow, 36 holes in one day is an exhausting task, so it will be the survival of the fittest, but a five shot start is very comforting. Inbee also loves this course;

” I’ve been playing the back nine well all week, I’m going to need lots of patience tomorrow but I’m looking forward to it. It’s a really great golf course. You can feel the history of the golf course. It’s great.”

The leading amateur in the field is World No. 1, Kiwi Lydia Ko.  A couple of weeks ago the 15 year-old from New Zealand won the CN Canadian Open to become the youngest player ever to win an official LPGA Tour title and today she added a one under par 71 to her opening  round of 72 to claim a share of sixth place with Japan’s Ai Miyazato, Sweden’s Carin Koch, South Korea’s Jenny Shin and America’s Vicky Hurst all on -1 under par.

Tomorrow is going to be a really tough day.

 

Ricoh British Womens Open 2nd Round

Play has been suspended for the day at  the Ricoh Women’s British Open on the Royal Liverpool Hoylake golf course due to extremely adverse weather conditions.

Having lost a whole day’s play on Friday, the Championship Committee met to review the format for the remainder of the Ricoh Women’s British Open Championship with the primary objective of retaining the 72 hole format of the event.  With weather conditions for Monday predicted to be similar to Friday (today) the Championship Committee has decided the following;

•    Round Two will be played on Saturday to completion and a cut will be made in accordance with the amended condition published below. The cut will be reduced from 65 plus ties to 50 plus ties, including amateurs.

•    Rounds 3 & 4 will be played on Sunday, with no redraw after Round 3. A two tee start will be utilised.

•    Prize money will be paid as normal to those players who make the cut. In addition, official prize money will be paid to those who would have normally made the cut under the original conditions of play.

A particularly sad end to the last Major competition of the year, with only the top 50 making the cut the second round will be a really tense affair.
