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 at Royal Liverpool, Round 1

ricoh_lock_up

Haeji Kang and So Yeon Ryu of  South Korea sit at the top of the Ricoh British Womens Open at Royal Liverpool, with opening rounds of -2 under par 70.

In a packed leaderboard there are nine players at -1 under par, among those are  Jiyai Shin, last weeks winner of the LPGA Kingsmill Championship, Karrie Webb, Stacy Keating and Vicky Hurst.

The Worlds number one Amateur 15 year-old Lydia Ko finished with a round of even par, and is very handily placed, there are 17 players on even par at the conclusion of play on day one. Another teenager up with the leaders is sixteen year-old Charley Hull, of England, with a  1-under 71 in the opening round of the $2.5 million Ricoh Women’s Open. Charley has Ian Poulter as one of her mentors, they are members of the Woburn Golf Club. Charley has never met Lydia but has certainly heard of her. She is impressed by what the Kiwi has done, but she reminded everyone not to focus solely on her younger peer.

” There’s a lot more to come from me.”

Charley Hull fired a 1-under 71 in the first round of the Ricoh Women's British Open at Royal Liverpool Golf Club.

Lydia will fave a big test in the second round, She tees off at 11.40am, and with winds expected to approach 50 miles per hour, the young Kiwi could well face the toughest of the conditions. Her daunting task will be to limit the damage tomorrow and give herself a chance to make the cut and contest the trophy at the weekend.

Lydia had rounds of 74 and 72 for a tournament total of +5 over par, nine shots off the pace of the leaders; American Vicky Hurst, German Sandra Gal and Suzann Petterson of Norway, who are all at -4 under par for the tournament. The cut line was set at +6 over par, so well done Lydia, and good luck in the next round.
