Ai Miyazato, Angela Stanford Co-Leaders After 2nd Round Of 2011 CN Canadian Women’s Open; Defending Champ Michelle Wie 3 Shots Back, Seon Hwa Lee Surging

Seon Hwa Lee

It’s a shooting gallery through two rounds of the 2011 CN Canadian Women’s Open. For an idea of how low you need to go, Peanut (Mi Hyun Kim) was tied for 4th at 5-under after the first round. She shot a solid 1-under par 71 on day two to go to 6-under. Unfortunately for Peanut, her 1-under round had her going in reverse 12 spots to a tie for 16th. Did they take the Evian Masters course and move it to Quebec? If you want to make a big move up the leaderboard in this tournament, you might just need to shoot around 65 to do so. And speaking of shooting 65, welcome back to the front page of the leaderboard, Seon Hwa Lee. The 2006 LPGA Rookie of the Year and 2005 Futures Tour Player of the Year had a clean 7 birdie round to vault into a tie for 4th at 8-under overall. Seon Hwa is a player I’ve been hoping would rediscover her winning ways. She won 4 times in her first three years, with 4 runners-up and 3 third place finishes. The last couple of years she has been win-less. Maybe this tournament can serve as a turnaround.

Ai Miyazato

One player who has had no problems winning the last year and a half is Ai Miyazato. After the first round, she was tied with Pernilla Lindberg for first place. Ai-chan is still tied for first, but has a new neighbor in Angela Stanford at 11-under. Miyazato had a 5 birdie, 1 bogey 68 to stay perched atop the leaderboard. Her great round included a nice 15-foot birdie putt on 14 and a terrific tee shot on the par 3 15th that led to another birdie. Her only hiccup was on 16, her first bogey of the tournament.

Michelle Wie

Defending champion Michelle Wie backed up her opening round 67 with a second round 69 to keep her in touch with co-leaders Miyazato and Stanford, 3 shots back at 8-under. Michelle stumbled out of the gate a bit going 1-over on the front 9. She turned it around in a hurry on the back 9. 4 foot birdie putt on 10? No problem. Nice tee shot and 10 foot birdie putt on 11? Dropped it in softly, the putt dying right into the hole. Laying up with the second shot on the par 5 14th, chipping from 50 yards out to 3 feet for another birdie putt? Count it. A laser shot off the tee to 2 feet of the hole on 15 for her fourth birdie in six holes? You had better believe it. Suddenly, a 1-over round was a 3-under round. She has to keep this up, though. Everybody seems to be collecting red numbers this week.

I would also like to salute Sherri Steinhauer, who finished the last round of her LPGA career. She is an 8 time LPGA winner, including 2 Majors, the 1992 du Maurier Classic and 2006 Women’s British Open. She is the assistant captain for the 2011 United States Solheim Cup team. Best wishes in all future endeavors! 🙂
