In a tournament where 15-under generally wins the day Stacy Lewis is already 12-under through two rounds. Her 9-under performance on Thursday which included 7 birdies in a row was bubbling over the top. She is back on simmer with a complimenting 69 today and leads the field by one shot.
Other notables are scorching the Evian Masters Golf Club as well. Inbee Park of South Korea shot an 8-under 63 with a balance of 4 birdies on each side in today’s round. Paula Creamer shot a 67 to go with her fine 68 and is T-3 with Inbee. Beatriz Recari had a 66 today and So Yeon Ryu, the U.S. Open champ, found her travel legs after a lackluster 73 on day one and shot 7-under to get herself into the mix for the weekend. Lots of other proven competitiors are within 7 of the lead including Se Ri Pak, Karrie Webb, Jiyai Shin, and Azahra Munoz.
The rough is not what it was last year and the hot weather must have the balls bounding to support this low scoring. It seems we will be watching a shoot-out on the shores of Lake Geneva on the Golf Channel this weekend.
