KLPGA: 2010 Hyundai China Ladies Open First Round; Jung Min Lee Leads By Three

First Round Leader Jung Min Lee

The 2011 KLPGA season is underway…in 2010! Well, yes. Although it is obviously still 2010, the KLPGA season actually currently starts in the December of the previous year with the China Ladies Open. So the 2010 season also started last year in December 2009, with So Yeon Ryu outdueling Hee Kyung Seo for the CLO title. And then the rest of the season didn’t start until April! But Ryu will have a difficult time repeating after bogeying three of her last six holes as part of a 2-over 74, eight shots back of first round leader Jung Min Lee, who sits three shots clear of the field at 6-under. Lee shot a clean six birdie, no bogey round. Three shots behind her is Bo Kyung Kim, whose four birdies against one bogey were good enough for solo 2nd.

For fans of Hee Kyung Seo, she is not playing this event. This is part of the 2011 KLPGA schedule. Seo is focusing her time on her 2011 rookie season on the LPGA in the United States. Of course, I hope Seo, who won the 2010 LPGA Kia Classic as a non-member, has a great year and wins LPGA Rookie of the Year. We shall see.
