I still think Michelle needs to have another total makeover of her putting. I happen to see her on the putting green:
The player who most impressed me was Sue Kim of Canada. On the 11th hole, she hit the ball to a point 15 yards off the green, a par 4 with a distance of 355 yards. Thus with a favorable oblique wind, she drove more than 300 yards. She is now in 24th place with a minus 1 score, and is all of 5 ft 1 inch tall.
And orange bougainvillea:
No great surprise that five golfers from South Korea are at the top of the tournament, led by another Kim, I.K. How perfect for Lotte, now a conglomerate. Five of the top current LPGA players are from Korea (Lydia Ko was born there and Michelle Wie's parents come from that country). I once regularly stayed at their hotel in Seoul. Competition started today, a Wednesday, because Korea is on the other side of the International Dateline, and the final day of play, Saturday here, will be Sunday there.
