Shin retains lead at Kingsmill Championship

  • Intro:

    Jiyai Shin followed her tournament record opening round of nine-under-par 62 with a 68 on Friday, to take a one-stroke lead in the LPGA Tour's Kingsmill Championship.

    The LPGA was able to complete the end of the first round and get through all of the second, after play was suspended on Thursday.


    The LPGA completed the first round and got through the second, at the Kingsmill Championship, on Friday.

    First round leader, Jiyai Shin regained her spot atop the leaderboard with birdies on the third and seventh holes. The South Korean then had two birdies and her first bogey of the week, on the back nine, to finish Friday at 12 under par.

    Shin had a one-stroke lead over Danielle Kang. The 19-year-old American sank six birdies over her opening nine holes on her way to a 64, the best score of the day.

    Paula Creamer is just two strokes off the lead with two rounds to go. Creamer bounced back from a bogey on 12 with back-to-back birdies to get under par on the day. She came in with a 67 and a share of third with Schreefel at 10 under par.

    Spain's Azahara Munoz is another stroke back. Munoz, the winner of the Sybase Match Play Championship back in May, shot a bogey-free round of 68 to tie Lexi Thompson at nine under par.

    Thompson opened her round on the 10th hole and birdied it. She had three other birdies, a bogey and an eagle on her card before the day was done to sign a 66.

    Michelle Wie's season struggles continued on the putting green. Wie missed two par putts within five feet in a round of par 71 and, at four-over through 36 holes, missed the cut. She has missed nine cuts this season and has only one top 10 finish.
