Sei Young Kim of South Korea has the lead at Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic and a four-stroke advantage going into the week-end.
Sei Young carded -7 under par 65 in her second round to lead the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic with a -16 under total, and will take a four shot advantage into the week-end.
Yu Liu of China holds second place at -12 under par, a second round -9 under par 63 taking her up the leaderboard with good putting being the key;
“It doesn’t feel too dramatic actually.”
“I wasn’t hitting it too spectacular, but I was rolling a lot of putts in so that was the major difference today than yesterday.”
Five ladies are then tied in third position at -11 under par, In Gee Chung and Amy Yang, both from South Korea, and both carding -6 under 66, Mariah Stackhouse, -5 under 67 and Emma Talley,-4 under 68, both USA, and Katherine Kirk, the first round leader from Australia, -1 under 71 today.
Emma hit 17 out the 18 greens in regulation;
“I’m playing well right now, so really just trying to play my game.”
“I feel really confident. The greens are pretty soft so you can kind of pin seek a little bit, and that’s what I like.”
“That’s how I grew up, so I’m enjoying just going straight at the flag.”
Mariah was also rolling in some putts;
“Today’s round was really consistent, I didn’t really get off to a crazy hot start, but it was solid.”
“I had a birdie early in the round that just kind of gets you comfortable, let’s you know that you’re going to roll some putts in that day.”
“On the back nine in particular there were a couple that just slid by that were great putts, so to finish like that definitely puts a good feeling in me.”
“Hopefully tomorrow I get a couple more of those to fall.”
