Hyo-Joo Kim, who has won her fifth LPGA Tour career, competed for the title at last week’s Shop Rite Classic, but finished runner-up, missing her first win of the season.

On the second day of the competition, the Korean players made a remarkable leap forward.

Lee Mi-hyang, Choi Hye-jin, Choi Woon-jung, and Yoo Hae-ran all recorded at-bats in their 60s, recording a median total of 7 under par and 137 strokes, and were tied for 16th place. The difference between the leader and the number of strokes is 4 strokes.

Jeon In-ji, who returned to the tour after about two months since April, missed the cut by hitting a 1-over-par 145 in the middle. In this tournament, the cutoff was decided at 2 under par.

Jeon In-gee took a break for back injury treatment after participating in the Chevron Championship, a major tournament held in April. After that, he participated in the Hanwha Life Plus International held as an event game in May, but only appeared in the regular competition for about two months.
