Women’s top two share lead
The top two players in women’s golf, Thailand’s Ariya Jutanugarn and Park Sung-hyun of South Korea, are among four players tied for the second-round lead at the LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship in Incheon.
Also on eight under are England’s Charley Hull, ranked 33, and 29thranked Danielle Kang of the US.
Ariya bogeyed two of the first four holes but stormed back with six birdies on the back nine for a round of 67 at the par-72 course.
“I didn’t watch the leaderboard because after my front nine, I didn’t care about the lead,” she said.
Ariya and world No1 Park are the only LPGA players with three wins this year.
Park three-putted twice but birdied three of the last six holes for a fourunder 68 to secure her position in the leading group on eight under par.
The Thai men’s No 1 Kiradech Aphibarnrat is eight shots off the pace after his second successive three-under 69 on his PGA Tour debut at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia.
