IN GEE CHUN TAKES LEAD INTO THE WEEKEND AT CP WOMEN’S OPEN
– News and notes from Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club for Friday, August 25th –
OTTAWA (Golf Canada) – In Gee Chun is tired of finishing second.
Chun, who has notched four runner-up results in 2017 – including losing in a playoff at the Manulife LPGA Classic earlier this year – is doing her best to lock up her first victory on the LPGA Tour since 2016, as she leads by two heading to the weekend at the CP Women’s Open.
“I (had) a lot of seconds this year, but I think they were good memories for me and a good experience,” said Chun, who sits at 8-under par. “I think I’m ready to win.”
Chun made five birdies Friday and just one bogey to fire a 4-under-par 67, the same score she shot Thursday. She admitted she was having trouble reading the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club’s tricky greens, but managed to coordinate things better with her caddie, who helped her line things up better.
“I had a hard time seeing the putting line, so I asked my caddie, and he picked good lines,” she said. “I trusted my line and made it.”
Chasing Chun is a trio of Americans: Mo Martin, Brittany Lincicome and Marina Alex.
