Candie Kung Looking To Win In Taiwan; Azahara Munoz, Anna Nordqvist Tied For Lead After 2nd Round Of 2011 Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship

Candie Kung

There was a storybook scenario for the inaugural 2011 Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship. It involved hometown hero, and world #1, Yani Tseng marching to victory as her countrypeople showered adulation down upon her. That might still happen. But 4-time LPGA winner Candie Kung, herself born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, set herself up to be the Taiwanese golfer to bask in the glory of triumph with a 4-under 68 to put herself into a tie for 3rd after 2 rounds at 5-under overall. Now, to be accurate, Candie became a naturalized American citizen about 6 years ago and lives in the United States. However, she still plays under the flag of Taiwan…the real flag, not that Olympic flag to appease Beijing. It would mean a lot to Candie to win the first LPGA event in Taiwan.

It would be great. I’ve been playing pretty consistent the last few weeks, just everything hasn’t been coming together. It would be great to win here, because I think a lot of people know me, too. They know who I am and they come out and watch. They’ve never seen LPGA before. – Candie Kung

Azahara Munoz

Having something to say about who wins will be 2nd round co-leaders Azahara Munoz and Anna Nordqvist. Munoz, who won her professional debut in 2009 at the LET Madrid Ladies Masters, torched the course in Taiwan on a soggy and damp day with a sizzling 6-under par 66 to share the lead at 7-under. Her day was highlighted by an eagle on #6, to go along with 4 birdies. But with that being said, Yani lurking in 3rd is an intimidating sight.
