A Quick Check-In at Taiwan

Let's take a quick peek-in at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Taiwan Championship. The live coverage is being carried live on GC's online rather than TV (the WGC has that slot). GC is just showing repeats of the LPGA event later on the following day.

As usual, Tony Jesselli has a preview over at his blog. This is a limited field event and a number of top players are skipping it, as this is the fourth event in a seven-week stretch that spans the globe and ends at the CME Group Tour Championship. That makes this a good opportunity for other players to make up ground or simply try to get a victory.

And Jodi Ewart Shadoff is doing just that. After a seven-under 65 on the first day, she is (at the time I'm writing this) eight-under for the tournament after six holes (just one-under for the day). She's just two shots ahead of Lydia Ko and Wei-Ling Hsu. Three shots back is a group of six -- Ryann O'Toole, Ally MacDonald, Mirim Lee, Moriya Jutanugarn, Megan Khang and So Yeon Ryu.

I currently have the streaming video from GC on and, while the weather looks good, it appears the players are struggling a bit to read the greens properly. The best score I've seen so far is Lydia's -- she's five-under for the day -- but nobody is going particularly low early in their rounds.

Still, this looks to be a very competitive tournament going into the weekend. The leaderboard is tightening up and with only 81 players in the field, we could see someone get their first win this weekend.
