Hot Nights in Kuala Lumpur

At least it's night here in North Carolina. Since the GC broadcasts of the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia are live, it's midday over there. But that doesn't change the heat -- and I'm not referring to the temperature in Malaysia.

Lexi in 2nd round

Lexi Thompson blistered the course during the second round (Thursday night) when she went 6-under in 5 holes, eventually posting an 8-under 63 that put her at -12. That was one off the lead of Ilhee Lee. As I'm watching tonight (Friday night) Lexi has already gone 3-under in her first 7 holes to take the lead at -15. (Ilhee is still at -13.)

Shanshan Feng (last week's winner) is in third place at -10 with I.K. Kim, and Suzann Pettersen is in fifth place with Anna Nordqvist at -9. Anna's the big mover today -- she's gone 6-under in 13 holes to move up from 29th place.

Paula Creamer was tied with Anna and Suzann until she made a nasty double-bogey at the 7th. Still, she's tied with So Yeon Ryu, Karine Icher, and Amy Yang at -7 (T7).

And just behind them is a group at -6 (T11) with Beatriz Recari, Pornanong Phatlum, and Michelle Wie, among others. (Yes, Michelle is playing well after a tough first round.)

Although it's awkward watching golf at this late hour -- clearly I'm not going to see all of it -- it's still nice to see GC making an effort to broadcast the ladies while they're actually playing. They're certainly being rewarded with some seriously good play. After all, Inbee Park won it last year with a final score of -15.

Right where Lexi is as I write this. Who knows where she -- and the other gals -- will be when you read it? The final round is scheduled for tonight (Saturday) at midnight ET, so you might want to try and catch some of it. The quality of the golf has been amazing.
