Jiyai Shin leads Wegmans LPGA
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) â€” South Korean star Jiyai Shin, seeking her fifth win in 11 months, shot a 4-under 68 on Friday to vault into a three-stroke lead at the storm-plagued Wegmans LPGA.
“I really am happy with my putter â€” it’s really good,” the 21-year-old Shin said after moving to 11-under 133, a record low at the demanding Locust Hill course in suburban Rochester. “I would like to keep this feeling through tomorrow and the final round.”
Play was interrupted by thunderstorms for nearly five hours, then called off at 8:37 p.m. as darkness fell. In all, 71 players will complete their second round Saturday morning, including Tiger Woods’ niece, Cheyenne, who was battling to make the cut.
