Jamie Farr Toledo Classic Saturday: The Empire Strikes Back
Check out the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic leaderboard now that the dust has settled from moving day charges by Ji-Yai Shin and In-Kyung Kim. Their 66s brought them to -11, tied with So Yeon Ryu (67) and Hee Kyung Seo (68) for the lead, and 1 shot ahead of Inbee Park (69), Mika Miyazato (69), and 2nd-round leader Chella Choi (70). Choi is the only surviving rebel alliance leader that I focused on earlier today in my overview of the 1st 36 holes, although to be fair 1st-round leader Pernilla Lindberg and Jacqui Concolino are only 3 off the pace at -8, and Beatriz Recari, Karine Icher, and Jennie Lee aren't out of it at -7. But every other player within 5 shots of the lead is a big name. Yes, we have no Stacy Lewis, Na Yeon Choi, Paula Creamer, Brittany Lincicome, or Brittany Lang in the hunt, and Amy Yang and Natalie Gulbis will have to go super-low from -4 to be a factor tomorrow, but there's plenty of star power on the top of the leaderboard. Who will shine brightly and who will go supernova tomorrow? Time will tell!
