The LPGA returns to Beijing, China for the Reignwood LPGA Classic held at the Reignwood Pine Valley Golf Club. With beautiful fall-like weather today, the players are excited to be here and check out course conditions.
Competition heated up Saturday at the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic as Paula Reto and M.J. Hur battled back and forth. Hur shot an impressive 67, pushing her way into a tie for the lead with Reto at 15-under par.
Paula Reto’s response to a career-best 7-under-65 was a round nearly as good, shooting the second best round of her career Friday with a 6-under-par 66 for a three-shot lead over Mi Jung Hur at 10-under-par. World No. 1 Stacy Lewis sits four back in solo third at 9-under.
M.J. Hur went out in the morning wave and tied her career scoring best with a 8-under 64 Thursday to take the lead. And for the first 12 holes Stacy Lewis played, it looked like that lead would hold for Hur.
South Korea’s Hyo Joo Kim shot a 1-over 72 on Saturday to take a one-shot lead at the Evian Championship. The KLPGA member sits atop the leaderboard at 8-under par and will be paired with LPGA and World Golf Halls of Famer Karrie Webb (70) on Sunday in the final group.
