LPGA 2021 - Drive On Championships at Golden Ocala - Round Two 


From LPGA Tournament News:

Jennifer Kupcho and Austin Ernst each shot their second straight 5-under 67 to share the second-round lead Friday in the LPGA Tour's Drive On Championship.

A day after playing most of the back nine with a migraine that blurs her vision, Kupcho had six birdies and a bogey at Golden Ocala.

"I'm feeling a lot better today," the 23-year-old former NCAA champion said. "I would say yesterday was pretty rough. Yeah, the whole back nine I just pretty much wanted to get off the golf course and go lay down. ... It was definitely a rough day, but was able to get through it well so that was helpful."

Golden Ocala is renowned for having replica holes from famous courses, three of them from Augusta National and two from the Old Course at St. Andrews. Kupcho won the inaugural Augusta National Women's Amateur in 2019 with a back-nine charge.

"They are very similar and the look is definitely very similar, but I think I'm more nervous playing them than I was back then, actually," Kupcho said.

The former Wake Forest star from Colorado is seeking her first LPGA Tour victory.

"I've been in contention before out here," Kupcho said. "Just go out and relax and have fun."

Ernst had a bogey-free round. She has two LPGA Tour victories.    Full article at this link
