Na Yeon Choi Maintains Lead After 2nd Round Of 2011 CME Group Titleholders

Na Yeon Choi

On a day when scoring conditions toughened for the world’s best women golfers, Na Yeon Choi finished as she did after round 1, atop the leaderboard. However, her 1-under 71 2nd round was anything but routine. After finishing round 1 with a bogey on 18, she started round 2 with a double bogey on the first hole. She would birdie 4 and bogey 6 to remain at 2-over for the round going into the 7th hole. That’s where she would turn her round around. She hit a brilliant chip from the rough off the green for birdie. Her game picked up from there, hitting her approach shot to 5 feet on the 9th hole, leading to birdie. She would add birdies on 10 and 17, but for the second straight day, NYC bogeyed the par 4 18th. It’s terrific that she’s leading at 7-under overall, but it would probably be a good idea to find a solution for the 18th hole, lest that be the difference between winning or not.

Paula Creamer

Because if she doesn’t, there are a host of players on her heels capable of passing her, including Paula Creamer and Sandra Gal. For all of her pink affinity, don’t underestimate the fighting spirit of the Pink Panther. She has not won since last year’s US Women’s Open. For some players, that wouldn’t be an issue, but for Paula not to have an LPGA win in 2011 is sub-par. I’m sure she would love nothing more than to end the year holding the 2011 CME Group Titleholders winner’s trophy.
