Suzann Pettersen Extends Lead After 2nd Round Of 2013 Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship

Ok, everybody. It’s been fun. Thanks for playing. Drive home safely. Oh alright, maybe the 2013 Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship isn’t really over yet, but it’s starting to feel like a wrap; like one of those events that (fill in the blank  dominant player) grabs hold of and refuses to relinquish. This time that dominant player is Suzann Pettersen. The world #2 fired a 3-under 69 to extend to 7-under overall, increasing her lead from 3 shots after round one to 5 shots after round two. In an event where scoring is at a mininum (only 5 players under par and only Pettersen better than 2-under), Suzann is looking like she’s playing a game with which the rest of the field is not familiar. Add in a hole in one by the Norweigan star on the par 3 2nd hole and maybe it’s just her week.

On the other hand, I’ve watched enough tournaments to be wary about calling it a done deal after 36 holes. So much can happen, good or bad, to anybody. At the same time, I’ve watched players in the past like Annika Sorenstam, Lorena Ochoa and Yani Tseng seize events early and turn the weekend into a formality. Will anybody step up and go low to put some pressure on Suzann in the third round? It will be a daunting task. We’ll see if anybody is up to the challenge.
