Grace Park Shows Signs Of Former Glory, Shoots 67 For A Share Of The Lead At 2011 Avnet LPGA Classic

With all due respect to co-leader Song Hee Kim, I have been waiting for a round like this from my favorite player (or co-favorite with Virada) Grace Park for such a long time. My recent Grace Park, Model Golfer post showed a feature focusing on how she once climbed to the #2 player in the world. Starting on the back 9, Grace came out strongly, birdying her third hole, the par 4 12h hole, and nailing an eagle on her fourth hole, the par 5  13th hole. She did have 2 bogeys on the day, but that was evened out by her eagle. Grace also carded 5 birdies, including her last two holes, 8 and 9. I am a little worried that she had to pull out of her pro-am due to a “funny” feeling in her back, but for now I am thrilled to see her on top of a leaderboard, driving long off the tee again. Keep it going Grace!

Of course, my next favorite player is Se Ri Pak, so I am almost too giddy for words as Se Ri is also in position to successfully defend her title. Honestly, I cannot pull against Grace. No can do. However, should Grace not win, I would love to see Se Ri hoist the trophy again.
