Lotte Championship 2021 Round 2: Yuka Saso leads over Kiwi Lydia Ko


LPGA Tour 2021 - The Lotte Championship, Oahu, Hawaii - Round Two

Yuka Saso keeps lead, Lydia Ko chasing  

At the end of the second round of the Lotte Championship Yuka Saso has a two stroke lead with 16-under-par over Lydia Ko's 14-under. A group of four who are three back on 11-under includes Nelly Korda, winner of Gainbridge in February.

Australians Hannah Green with 7-under and Su Oh with 4-under have both clearly made the halfway cut.

From LPGA, by Associated Press:

Yuka Saso shot her second consecutive 8-under 64 on Thursday to take a two-shot lead over surging Lydia Ko after two rounds of the Lotte Championship.

Saso, who's playing on a sponsor's exemption, made seven birdies in her first 10 holes to catch Ko, who shot 63 earlier Thursday at Kapolei Golf Club. The 19-year-old from the Philippines then birdied the 16th and 17th holes to reach 16 under.

Not bad a player in her sixth LPGA Tour event who's uncomfortable with the Hawaii wind.

"I'm trying to get used to it," Saso said. "The wind is still strong. Like I said yesterday, I don't really like windy conditions. I'm happy I'm able to play good even if I don't really like it."  Read more here
