So Yeon Ryu, South Korea, has the 36 hole lead at the Meijer LPGA Classic.
So Yeon had a poor day with her tee shots, but made up for it with her putter, to sign for -5 under par 67 today, for a -13 under tournament total, and a one shot advantage for the week-end. She is also looking ahead to the UL International Crown competition in Korea;
“I hit a bit of bad tee shots, quite a lot today, but putting was good enough to make it work.,
“Then I think I made quite a lot of birdies today after I made three bogeys. I’m happy with 67 today.”
“I played 2014 and 2016 (UL) International Crown and I know how cool the tournament is going to be.”
“Also, I’m an ambassador for UL and it’s going to be more special and then it’s going to be in Korea.”
“So all those reasons make me really motivated to playing well for these three events to make it for Team Korea.”
Tied in second place are two ladies, Sandra Gall, Germany, -8 under 64 today, and Sakura Yokomine, Japan, who also shot -8 under 64 today, both at -12 under for the competition.
Sandra was happy to be in contention;
“It’s nice to see when you’re making the birdies and you see your name at the top.”
“It’s fun when you’re in contention for the weekend. It’s great.”
Another German lady is in fourth position, Caroline Mason is on her own at -11 under after her -6 under 66 in her second round.
