Way to Go, Hannah Yun (Again)!

Hannah Yun ended her 19-hole bogey-free run at the Volvik Championship on the 2nd hole, but started another one on the very next hole, rattling off 7 birdies in her last 16 holes to get to -11 heading into today's final round.  Thanks to her hitting every fairway and every green but 2, Yun leads LPGA veterans Alena Sharp and Hannah Jun by 2, Giulia Molinaro and Marta Silva by 3, and Jaye Marie Green, Brianna Do, and Min Seo Kwak by 5.  Yun hasn't put together 2 sub-70 rounds in a row on the Symetra Tour since June 2010 (and that was on a par-70 course), so this is a very encouraging sign and exciting opportunity for her.

Meanwhile, Mitsuki Katahira played a better 2nd round than 1st, but offset her 3 birdies on the front with a double and a bogey and could manage only 8 pars and a walkoff bogey on her way to  73 that had her miss the cut by 6 shots.  Hopefully she'll play better at Daytona Beach next week.

In the meantime, best of luck to Hannah Yun today!
