Yukari Baba Holds Lead At 2011 JLPGA Masters GC Ladies When 2nd Round Suspended By Thunderstorm; Paula Creamer 4 Shots Back

Yukari Baba

With thunderstorms suspending play at the 2011 JLPGA Masters GC Ladies before all golfers could complete their 2nd rounds, Yukari Baba, who did complete her round, holds a tenuous lead at 4-under par. After an even par 1st round, Yukari fired 5 birdies and 1 bogey to grab the pole position. She finished with a flourish, birdying 15, 17 and 18. However, several competitors are right on her heels at 3-under with holes left to play in the 2nd round, including the great Yuri Fudoh.

Paula Creamer

American Paula Creamer, who also completed her 2nd round, is 4 shots back at even par for the tournament. She has had 2 birdie, 2 bogey scorecards in both rounds. She has started well both rounds, birdying the opening hole par 5, but has stumbled when making the turn, bogeying 11 in the 1st round and 10 and 12 in the 2nd round. That said, we all know 4 shots (if that is the deficit when the round is completed) is not out of reach for a player of the Pink Panther’s ability. Paula won this event in 2005, one of two JLPGA events Paula has won, along with the 2005 NEC Karuizawa 72.
