BY Bruce Young | LPGA Tour | 2011 Honda LPGA Thailand | Round Two | 19 Feb 2011
Korean In-Kyung Kim leads after the second round of the Honda LPGA Thailand event at the Siam Country Club in Chonburi in Thailand but close on her tail is the newly crowned World number two golfer Yani Tseng and American Michelle Wie who sit just one behind the lead.
Four players share fourth place, namely Americans Juli Inkster and Paula Creamer along with Japan’s Momoka Ueda and the ever present Korean Na Yeon Choi.
The tournament is the opening event of the LPGA season and while many of the field have played in Australia of late, for others this is their first event of the season. It is also the first event of the 2011 LPGA Tour.
Karrie Webb is one of only two Australians in the field and today she put together the equal best round of the day (68) to be in a share of 14th position and six shots from the lead. Katherine Hull is another five shots behind.
