Yuki Ichinose, Mamiko Higa Join Shiho Oyama Atop Leaderboard After 2nd Round Of 2013 Mizuno Classic

Yuki Ichinose

Coming into 2013, Yuki Ichinose and Mamiko Higa had a combined grand total of zero JLPGA wins (and for that matter zero LPGA wins, since the Mizuno Classic is co-sanctioned). 5 events into the season, both had earned their maiden victories, 25-year old Ichinose at the T-Point Ladies Golf Tournament and 20-year old Higa, who only played 5 events last year, at the Yamaha Ladies Open Katsuragi. Mamiko would add another win a few months later at the Resort Trust Ladies. Both ladies rode 6-under 66 rounds on the second day of the 2013 Mizuno Classic to join overnight leader Shiho Oyama at 8-under overall atop the leaderboard. One shot back at 7-under are Asako Fujimoto and LPGA Major winner Brittany Lincicome. World #3 Stacy Lewis is still lurking 3 shots back, but with only one more round to play, and a lot of players to leapfrog, she will need to get red hot on the final day and hope nobody ahead of her has a similar breakout round.
