Ito-En Ladies Update: Yokomine and Jeon Neck-and-Neck
Sakura Yokomine and Mi-Jeong Jeon are pulling away from the field in the Ito-En Ladies event on the JLPGA this week. As the 2nd round was postponed due to darkness, Yokomine was -8 and Jeon was -6 with 4 holes to play. Ayako Uehara (-4 through 14), Miho Koga (-3 through 17), Yuko Mitsuka (-3 through 15), and Chie Arimura (-2 after her 2nd-straight 71) are notables who could claw their way into the hunt with some fine play tomorrow. Money-list leader Shinobu Moromizato is stuck at E and will need to make a charge tomorrow just to minimize the chunk Yokomine, Jeon, and Arimura will be trying to take out of her lead on them. Given the health situation at home and my own energy levels, I'll do a tournament recap after the completion of the tournament--hopefully on Sunday!
