Mizuno Classic Saturday: Get Moving or Get Back

Moving Day lived up to its name at the Mizuno Classic. A 32 on the back for a bogey-free 66 leapfrogged Ji-Yai Shin 2 shots ahead of 1st-round leader Mayu Hattori, who broke 70 for the 2nd stright time thanks to a 33 on the back. Jee Young Lee was the only LPGA star to keep pace with her JLPGA peers; her birdie on the 18th was good enough for a 68 that brought into a tie for 3rd with Shiho Oyama. Erina Hara's bogey-free 67 pulled her even with Eun-A Lim at -6. Nice 67, too, by Allison Fouch to get to -4 and T9. More later!

[Update 1 (11/9/08, 8:28 am): Here's Hound Dog's recap.'s notes and interviews page gets a lot wrong about Ji-Yai Shin (her KLPGA record this season, for one thing), but it does reveal 2 things about her worth noting: she's very comfortable playing in Japan and loves Japanese food.]

Shin may enter her rookie year on the LPGA with 2 titles under her belt. Lorena better watch out.
