Oct 26, 2018 Entertainment Comments Off on Taiwanese golfer on top after second round of home LPGA event
Taipei, Taiwanese golfer Hsu Wei-ling (???) kept her focus and played aggressively on Friday to seize a one-shot lead after the second round of the LPGA Swinging Skirts Taiwan Championship at the Ta Shee Golf and Country Club in Daxi, Taoyuan.
Hsu, who was tied for fourth after the first round, shot a 5-under 67 on Friday to move to 9-under-par, one shot ahead of first-round leader Jodi Ewart Shadoff of England and two ahead of Lydia Ko of New Zealand.
"I kept reminding myself today not to play too conservatively," Hsu said after the second round, explaining that she has a tendency to play it safe after playing a good round, which often results in many mistakes and bad results.
Hsu, who carded five birdies and 13 pars on Friday, said she stayed focused throughout the round and tried not to let the performance of other players rattle her nerves.
Asked if she feels pressure now that she has the lead, Hsu said she will try her best not to think too much about it.
"There are still two more days left in the tournament. Nothing has been decided yet. The next two days will be tough battles," she said.
The next highest Taiwanese after two rounds were Teresa Lu (???), amateur Hou Yu-chiang (???), and Babe Liu (???), who were all tied for 29th at even par for the tournament.
Former world No. 1 Yani Tseng, who has had a difficult year on the LPGA tour, was tied for 52nd at 3-over-par after shooting an even-par 72 on Friday. Her advice to Hsu was to stay aggressive.
A total of 81 players are competing in the 72-hole tournament, which runs until Sunday.
