Korean-Australian Minjee Lee jumped to a one-shot lead after the second round of the BMW Ladies Championship on the Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour.
Lee carded four birdies and a bogey for a 3-under 69 in the second round on Tuesday at the par-72 Seowon Hills Course at Seowon Valley CC in Paju, South Korea.
With an 11-under-par 133 total, Lee jumped from a tie for third place to sole possession of the lead. She holds a two-stroke lead over Ashley Buhai (SOU) and Allison Lee (USA), who both shot 9-under 135.
Lee will go for her 10th career LPGA Tour victory.
With five birdies and one bogey, Lee, 6, shaved four strokes off her score and is tied for fourth at 8-under 136.메이저놀이터
“I’m very happy with how I played today,” Lee said, “It was cold and it was hard to play, but I made a lot of birdies and I think I got into a good groove. I had some difficult holes in the back nine and a bogey on the last was unfortunate,” said Lee, “but I know why I missed shots, so if I can focus on that and play better, I’ll have fewer misses than I did today.”
Hae Ran Hae, who shaved one stroke off her second round score, is also in a tie for fourth place with Lee Jeong-eun and will look to make an upset.
Kim A-rim, Shin Ji-eun and Kim Hyo-joo are tied for 12th place with a 5-under par 139.
