Na Yeon Choi and Ji-Yai Shin Off to Good Starts in This Week's JLPGA Showdown
Na Yeon Choi opened the Samantha Thavasa Ladies with a 6-birdie 68 and Ji-Yai Shin a 5-birdie 69, putting themselves in good position to chase leaders Megumi Kido and Eun-Bi Jang, who set the pace with sweet 66s, heading into the weekend. Also in the hunt are money-list leader Mi-Jeong Jeon (70), #3 Mayu Hattori (71), #4 Ritsuko Ryu (68), #5 Miki Saiki (71), #6 Chie Arimura (72), #9 Sakura Yokomine (68), #10 Rikako Morita (71), #13 Soo-Yun Kang (68), and living legend Yuri Fudoh (71). They've already started the 2nd round in Ibaraki, Japan. Will try to get a 2nd-round post up here tomorrow morning before we leave for the 1st round of the Utica City Amateur. Stay tuned!
