Moving day at Grey Silo certainly did not disappoint, as Gerina Piller set the tournament record at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic with a 9-birdie 62, only to have it broken a couple of hours later by Hee Young Park, whose 61 gave her a 1-shot lead on 1st-round co-leader Angela Stanford (64, -19), a 2-shot lead on 2nd-round leader Catriona Matthew (68, -18), and a 3-shot lead on Meena Lee (65, -17). Having roared into the lead with a 29 on the back that was sparked by 6 3s in a row from the par-4 8th through the par-4 13th, Park is well aware that no 54-hole lead is truly safe in Waterloo. And with Anna Nordqvist only 5 back, Piller, Amy Yang, and Austin Ernst 6 behind, and Inbee Park and Suzann Pettersen "only" 7 off the pace, the Rocket isn't taking anything for granted. After all, 20 players have not yet strayed into the 70s yet this week. Heck, if Hanna Kang is throwing a 64 at the field, like she did today, a round in the low or mid 60s could come from anywhere tomorrow. Only time will tell from where!
[Update 1 (8:52 am): Nice quick write-up from Ruthless Mike! Note that all the 64s that have been registered this week rightly don't even register on his radar!]
