Three ladies are tied at the top of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, So Yeon Ryu and Sung Hyun Park of South Korea, with Brooke Henderson from Canada, all, enjoyed cooler temperatures in the early morning rounds at Kemper Lakes Golf Club.
So Yeon, -3 under 69 today, Brooke, -1 under 71 and Sung Hyun at even par 72, all share the 36 hole KPMG Women’s PGA Championship lead at -6 under par.
Brooke was happy with her round in the hot and windy conditions;
“It was kind of up-and-down all day.”
“I would have liked to have shot a little bit better today, but one under when it was so hot and so windy, I’ll take it.”
So Yeon celebrated her birthday with a chip in birdie at the par four 5th and also a great day with her putting;
“That’s one of the best birthday gifts I ever got.”
“Today, literally Lydia made everything, so she just made look everything really easier.”
“I was like, well, if she can do that, maybe I should do that, and then I started to make birdies on the back nine.”
“It’s better to think about winning the tournament, better to keep telling yourself how confident you are.”
“I just really enjoyed every moment with my little golf ball out there. I think after I won the Meijer Classic, that’s the attitude I have to have for this year.”
“These days, it’s really a matter of putting, right now, I feel really great on the putting green.”
Lydia Ko made up yesterdays lost ground shooting -6 under 66 to be at -4 under for the tournament, and right back in it;
“I tried to make as many birdies as I can, and I know it’s difficult out there with the wind being a little bit more up than yesterday.”
“My goal was to try to make the cut, so I think mission accomplished.”
