Round 2 of the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic has been suspended due to poor weather conditions, with Yani Tseng sitting on top of the leaderboard with a completed second round.
Yani swept back the year as she carded a second round -8 under par 64, to top the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic leaderboard;
“Just want to keep playing as happy Yani and just enjoy it.”
“I’ve been working on my game forever like every day. It’s just exciting. I really want to win a tournament for sure.”
“We only have probably seven, eight tournaments left, but it’s never too late. Just very happy my game’s really coming back.”
“I’m really happy to be playing golf and just I want to win. But it doesn’t matter, it will come.”
“It doesn’t matter if it’s this week or next week or next year, just try to be patient as much as I can and stay positive.”
“If I can drive the ball well, I can stay aggressive, if I can put my ball in position, I’m going to really have fun on the course.”
“Especially a course like this, it’s good for a long hitter. If I can keep on the fairway, I’m going to play well.”
“But you have to putt well, too. I can really see my shot and hit those good drives on the golf course.”
Austin Ernst is in second place, just one shot back at -9 under par. A second round -7 under par 65, elevating her up the leaderboard.
Austin said she has been playing well, just needs some putts to fall;
“I’ve been playing well. It’s really just a matter of getting some putts to fall.”
“I hit it really well today. I had a few holes that where I kind of hit some loose shots, but kind of just took my bogey and kind of went on with it.”
“And then I had probably three wedge shots that I hit up within a foot and I just went up and tapped them in. I think I hit two more where I had about 3 feet.”
Lexi Thompson is in third spot at -8 under par, a solid -5 under par 67 moving her into contention.
The top three have all completed their second rounds, and coming up behind them are Julieta Granada and Sydnee Michaels, both on -7 under par, and holes still to play in the second round.
