Jessica Korda leads greats in China

2012 Australian Women’s Open Champion, Jessica Korda, has the halfway lead at the Reignwood LPGA Classic at the Pine Valley Golf Club in Beijing, the 20 year old two shots ahead of China golf’s only major winner in either gender, Shanshan Feng and world number two Stacy Lewis.
Na Yeon Choi is one shot further back in fourth position with another two shots back to the world number one Inbee Park.
With six top ten finishes on the LPGA Tour this season, Korda is continuing to consolidate her place in the game and her second LPGA Tour victory might be not too far away.
Feng thrilled local fans with a brilliant second round of 64 and is sure to have a passionate and perhaps partisan following over the final two rounds.
Karrie Webb heads the Australians in a share of 8th position albeit seven shots from the leader.
Katherine Hull-Kirk, Sarah-Jane Smith and Lindsey Wright are also in the field but are well off the pace.
