Top-ranked Lydia Ko yesterday carded an ugly 74 as she slipped nine shots
off the pace set by South Koreans Jang Ha-na and Mirim Lee at the HSBC Women’s Champions in Singapore.
The 18-year-old, seeking her first win at the tournament, has much ground to make up at the par-72 Sentosa course after an unsatisfying first two rounds.
Defending champion Inbee Park was also five shots back from Jang and Lee, who fired 66 and 67 respectively for matching aggregate scores of 136.
Park, who did not card a single bogey as she romped to the title last year, struggled to a 73 on another windy day at the resort island course.
Jang shot to the top of the leaderboard after shooting four birdies and an eagle on the par-five seventh, before Lee joined her at the top. [FULL STORY]
