Inbee Park, Cristie Kerr Tied For Lead After Second Round Of 2013 CN Canadian Open; Lydia Ko Still Lurking

The Year of Inbee continued in the second round of the 2013 CN Canadian Open. The winner of the first 3 Majors this year rode a 5-under 65 to sit tied with Cristie Kerr at 8-under overall at the midway point in Edmonton. Inbee started her day with a sensational hole out from a bunker for birdie, the first of seven birdies on the day. She did also have two bogeys, including one on her final hole. Players never want to end rounds with a bogey, but Inbee is still in good shape and is mentally solid enough to shake that blemish off.

Lydia Ko stayed in contention with a 1-under 69, leaving her at 6-under overall, 2 shots back. Despite that, it was a shaky round, one that was opened with a birdie on 10 (she started on the back 9). Oddly enough, Lydia claims to not really like starting rounds with birdies. I can’t imagine too many golfers who wouldn’t want a birdie on the their first hole…or any hole for that matter. But maybe she sees it as a false sense of ease if she comes out and it’s too easy right off the bat.

BIRDIES:

Paula Creamer keeps hovering around the top of leaderboards. This woman is due for a win soon!

Stacy Prammanasudh in top 10 at midway point. Always happy to see a person of partial Thai heritage (like myself) playing well. Now if Tiger can just get #15.

Charley Hull at 5-under, building on the momentum of her Solheim Cup breakthrough.

Lexi Thompson and Jessica Korda both at 4-under, showing the talents of a few of America’s great young players.

BOGEYS:

Chie Arimura with a missed cut. I am pulling so much for her to play well. She could be a real star.

Jennifer Kirby followed her opening round 3-under with a second round 6-over to miss the cut. Definitely didn’t want to see that. Hopefully, we’ll see more of her.

Michelle Wie missed the cut, citing illness. Stacy Lewis, her Solheim Cup teammate, withdrew after round one feeling under the weather. Perhaps there was something going around.

“I’m completely under the weather. I was struggling today, just could not get out of bed. I just felt really sick today, though that is no excuse. I’m going to take advantage of the two days I’m not playing, and just not leave my bed and just kind of sleep for 40 hours straight.” – Michelle Wie
