After two rounds, Sung Hyun Park leads the 2017 Volvik Championship with a seven under 65. LPGA Rookie Park made six birdies on the back nine to pass early leader Minjee Lee.

“I think I started birdie birdie on the first two holes and after that I kind of lost it a little bit. But going into the back nine, the first hole on 10 I made a birdie, and from that point on I think my putting kind of came back alive,” Park said through an interpreter.

Two shots back of Park are Minjee Lee and Suzann Pettersen.

Setting the pace early with a six-under 66, Lee climbed from a t9 to first. Starting on the back nine, she birdied five holes, then added two more after making the turn to the front. Her only

At last week’s tournament at Kingsmill, Lee was disqualified when she failed to sign the scorecard. She otherwise would have finished tied for tenth. Lee responded positively when asked if she felt any pressure from the incident:

“No, not really. I played good last week and I know my game’s there. I’ve been hitting it pretty solid and putting pretty well. Yeah, coming into this week I obviously, like I said before, I know my game’s there.”

Suzann Pettersen posted a second consecutive 67 to move into a tie with Lee for second.

“Two 67s, you can’t ever complain. Played some really good golf, gave myself a lot of good looks. Like I said yesterday, this course, if you’re in the fairways, it’s almost like throwing darts. I mean you can kind of fire at every pin even if they’re very close to the edges, so feeling good,” Pettersen said.

Three strokes back, at -9 are the group of Lizette Salas, Cydney Clanton, Shanshan Feng, Sarah Jane Smith and Ann Arbor native Jennifer Song.
