Kim leads fog-suspended U.S. Women's Open

The SportsXchange

Lest we forget after one round that Inbee Park was still here to compete for the U.S. Women's Open, she made it quite clear in the second-round fog at Sebonack.

While I.K. Kim took an early round lead at 7 under par, Park, with one of the last rounds of the day, overcame her first two bogeys of the tournament to shoot 4-under 68 on Friday for a two-day total of 9 under.

The world's No. 1-ranked player was able to get under par for the round with a birdie on No. 8. She then sank a 35-foot putt for another birdie on 13 to tie Kim. Two holes later, at the par-5 15th, Park took the lead and added some insurance with a 10-foot birdie putt to give her a two-stroke lead by day's end.

Her putt was the last of the day as fog suspended play for a few late groupings.

Kim was very much in the thick of things in Thursday's first round. Sharing the lead with Park before Ha-Neul Kim took over, I.K. Kim went on to bogey the 18th hole and drop to third place at 4 under.

In the second round, Kim made sure she finished strong, ending on the front nine with two birdies to shoot a 3-under 69.

Ha-Neul Kim, the first-round leader, did not have the same good fortune at Sebonack that she had Thursday. With three bogeys and a double bogey, Ha-Neul shot 5 over for the round and dropped to 1 under overall.

Englishwoman Jodi Ewart Shadoff used a bogey-less 13-hole run to go 3 under on the day and 5 under for the tournament. Two birdies on Nos. 10 and 12 sparked her jump to third place before she bogeyed 14 to finish at 4 under. She has three holes remaining in the second round.

Lizette Salas shot par on day two, staying at 4 under and tied for third. She was momentarily tied with Park at 5 under at the start of the round, but she bogeyed 14 after two straight birdies on Nos. 7 and 8.

Angela Stanford shot a 4 under 68 to jump to fifth place in the second round. She birdied four of the first seven holes on the back nine.
