YANG LEADS, HENDERSON AND YIN TRAIL BY ONE AFTER 36 HOLES AT CP WOMEN’S OPEN
News and notes from Wascana Country Club for Friday, August 24th
REGINA (Golf Canada) – Amy Yang, gunning for her first victory of 2018, shot a second-round 65 at the CP Women’s Open to hold the 36-hole lead at 13-under 131. The three-time LPGA Tour winner, who last visited the winner’s circle in February 2017 at the Honda LPGA Thailand, took advantage of the prime early scoring conditions, carding nine birdies to just two bogeys.
“My putting was really good today,” said Yang, who needed just 26 putts Friday. “I was hitting it pretty solid out there, but I gave myself a lot of good chances, and I think I made most of them out there.”
Yang holds a one-stroke lead over young guns Brooke Henderson and Angel Yin. Henderson again had partisan Canadian crowds following her every move, thrilling the fans with a closing birdie at No. 9, while Yin carded three consecutive birdies to finish her round.
