Ariya Jutanugarn Maintains Lead After 2nd Round Of 2013 Kingsmill Championship

I am going to say something that some golf fans might think absurd. I was more impressed by Ariya Jutanugarn’s 2nd round at the 2013 Kingsmill Championship than the first round. I know, I know. How can that be?! She went 7 under in the 1st round and only even par the 2nd. I am more impressed in this regard. In her last LPGA event, the 2013 Lotte Championship, she finished in 3rd place. She scorched the Hawaiian course with an opening 64 and closed with a 68 and 66. However, sandwiched between those rounds was a 2nd round 75 that really hurt her chances to win the event. At Kingsmill, starting her round on the back 9, she was 3 over through her first 8 holes and heading for the kind of round that would not prevent a great finish, but would sink her chances of winning. What she did on the “front 9″…which for her was actually her back 9 on this day…was what a professional golfer has to do to stay in contention. She abandoned her safety first approach, spurred by the windy conditions, and went back to her aggressive style, willing herself to 3 birdies to pull back to even par for the round and 7-under for the tournament, maintaining her first place position. I spoke of how par saves can be so very important in round 1. Well, this was a par save round. In round 1, she showed her brilliance with shot making and a birdie fest. In round 2, she displayed true professionalism with her resolve and fortitude in the face of a round that looked early on like it could easily get away from her.
