Inbee Park Is at It Again

Although it isn't being shown on GC, the LET's World Ladies Championship in China is providing yet another opportunity for Inbee Park to chase down Lydia Ko.

Inbee Park in action

Inbee finished the first round on Wednesday night -- well, it was Wednesday night here in the US -- tied for the lead at -4 with Becky Morgan. Unfortunately, things haven't gone so well for Becky during the second round. At the time I'm writing this, she's +1 for the day and has finished, putting her at -3 overall while Inbee has moved to -8 after finishing her round.

The new challenger is Holly Clyburn, who went -8 for the round and is now only one shot back of Inbee. The weather has apparently been hot and overcast, the course a bit damp after a wet and windy first round.

It's hard to guess what may happen from here on out. Clyburn has proven that the course is getable, and 17 players are currently at -1 or better. I think the two most notable players in that group are Suzann Pettersen -- who finished her second round at -1 for the tournament -- and So Yeon Ryu, who hasn't even teed off yet.

You can keep track of the scores at the LET leaderboard, and there should be a summary of the second round posted at this page by the time you read this.

But I think the biggest news by far is that Lydia Ko isn't playing in China this week but Inbee isn't listed in the field of next week's Founders Cup. Inbee will probably need to win this week just to stay within reach of Lydia.
