Around the World of Women's Golf: JLPGA, KLPGA, and LET Updates

Ruthless Mike points out that In-Kyung Kim leads the LET event in Sweden after the 1st round on the strength of a 65, but a 2nd-round 73 left her 2 shots behind Valentine Derry, 1 shot behind Lee-Anne Pace, tied with Pernilla Lindberg, and 4 shots ahead of Ashleigh Simon, with Anna Nordqvist, Caroline Hedwall, Gwladys Nocera still out on the course right now.

Meanwhile, over on the JLPGA, Sun-Ju Ahn is in great position to snag her 3rd consecutive win and defend her title at the Golf5 Ladies after her opening 67 put her in a tie for the lead with Miki Saiki, Na-Rui Lee, Yun-Jye Wei, and 20-year-old Phoebe Yao.  With Mi-Jeong Jeon only 2 behind, money-list leader Rikako Morita 3 off the pace, and Sakura Yokomine and Shiho Oyama within 4 shots of the leaders, anything can happen on the weekend, but Ahn is once again the player to beat on the JLPGA.

Finally, a lot of LPGAers are tuning up for the Evian Championship by playing the biggest-money event on the KLPGA, the 72-hole Hanwha Classic.  So Yeon Ryu was 3 shots off the lead after the 1st round.  Check out Seoul for more updates, with plenty of photos to go with the scoring overviewing HappyFan and others post!

[Update 1 (9/7/13, 10:31 am):  Correction: Inky actually had a 2nd-round 72!  Durn those live leaderboards!]
