Elsewhere in Asia, on the KLPGA and LET...

It's the last major of the year for the KLPGA and their top players are showing the visiting LPGAers a little something.  Sul Ah Yoon has gone 71-66 to take a 2-shot lead on Sung Hyun Lee, with money-list leader Sei Young Park only 3 off the pace.  Hee Young Park's little sister, Ju Yeon Park bounced back from an opening 75 with a 67 today and is 5 back, while Rookie of the Year race leader Hyo Joo Kim is 6 behind.  With Amy Yang missing the cut, the only LPGAers left in the field are Sandra Gal (+1) and Ji-Yai Shin (+2).  They'll need to go low on the weekend to get into contention.

Meanwhile, on the LET, Nikki Campbell fired a 63 in China to take a 1-shot lead on Ye Na Chung, a 4-shot lead on Lee-Anne Pace, Charley Hull, and 2 other golfers, and a 5-shot lead on Laura Davies, Beth Allen, and 6 other players.

I don't know if any of these golfers would be outplaying Suzann Pettersen in Taiwan or how they would stack up against the star-studded JLPGA leaderboard, but it's pretty neat when so much good golf is being played on the same continent!
