The ‘Taegeuk Youngja Corps’ continued their poor performance for the second day at the Portland Classic of the LPGA Tour (total prize money of $1.5 million).
In the second round of the tournament held at the Columbia Edgewater Country Club (par 72, 6,467 yards) in Portland, Oregon, USA on the 2nd (Korean time), not a single Korean player was ranked in the top 20.
Among Korean players, the highest ranked players were Kim Hyo-joo (28, Lotte), Shin Ji-eun (31, Hanwha Q CELLS), and Jang Hyo-jun (20), who each recorded 7 under par 137 strokes and tied for 25th place.
Kim Hyo-joo, who was tied for 18th place in the first round, added 3 under par that day, but was pushed back in the rankings.
Shin Ji-eun improved her ranking by hitting 6 under par in the second round alone, and rookie Jang Hyo-jun dropped 4 strokes.
After that, Lee Mi-hyang (30, Volvik) tied for 34th place, and Lee Jeong-eun6 (27, Daebang Construction) tied for 44th place.메이저놀이터
