So Yeon Ryu stretches her lead at the PC Women’s Open to five shots at London Hunt and Country Club in Ontario.
So Yeon shot a bogey free -6 under par 66 today, to add to her first round record breaking bogey free 63, which gives her a 36 hole total of -15 under par. She was not too impressed with today’s effort;
” After I shot 9-under, 6-under isn’t that great, but still it’s a really great score, and I had a lot of great putts. I had a bogey-free round two days in a row, so I feel really great about that. I do love Canadian fans so much. I’m really happy I was able to show really great golf in front of them.”
’”I’m aiming for a bogey-free round all day four days, and I’m aiming for a really good win.”
From this position it would be harder to lose than win, but golf is a funny game.
Three Ladies are sharing second place, Danielle Kang, Anna Nordqvist and Na Yeon Choi have all posted -10 under par at the half-way stage.
Na Yeon certainly thinks there is still a chance to catch her friend and Korean countrywoman So Yeon;
“I think it’s too far away from Sunday. We just finished the half, and I know she looks like she’s playing so well the last two rounds. fifteen under is a big score for two rounds, but my short game is getting better and my patience is getting better.”
“I missed some good results. So maybe this is my first opportunity to win in a long time. But I’m not going to think about that and I’ll just try to enjoy it on the course with my caddie and all the Canadian fans.”
Daneille forgot her ball marker, but her friend Lydia Ko was on hand to lend her lucky marker, and it certainly worked;
“Well, she was going to give me her ball marker, but she said she wasn’t putting well, so she gave me the one she was putting well with which is this one.”
“All I wanted to do was finish at 10‑under today. I started off with a goal of 4‑under minimum, and I was coming in and I was striking the ball well on the back nine and I was trying to figure out the shots, and I skulled a wedge shot on 16, and I had a really tough chip coming back, and I told myself, you know what? It will all even out.”
“Good at putting right now, and I have so much confidence with my putter which makes my game really together.”
Anna has confidence with the way she is striking the ball, just needs to sink a few more putts;
” My confidence is great. I played great last week, just couldn’t seem to make a lot of putts last week. Yesterday was great, off the block and shoot 7‑under the first day, and then today I felt my game was even better than yesterday. “
“It’s funny how a day can turn around. But I’m obviously very happy with what I’ve been doing, and I felt I would struggle a little bit after the U.S. Open in Arkansas and the British Open, but I feel like I’m back on track and I’m happy with the way I’m hitting it.
Brittany Lincicome, fired the round of the day, a 7-under 65, to move to -8 under par for the tournament at T6. Inbee Park, who defeated Brittany in a playoff at the Wegmans LPGA Championship, is -7 under par and T11. Lydia Ko is way off the pace here, the pressure of getting to number one in the world seems to be having an effect on her performance.
