Nine holes with Christina and Mi Hyun Kim

I followed today’s co-leaders on the front nine.

Mi Hyun(or Peanut’s) round- Could be best described as a short game highlight reel. On holes 1-5, with the exception of hole 3 where she two-putted for par, Mi Hyun got up and from off the green. On the par four sixth, Peanut made a putt from about 10 feet for birdie to go -6. She gave back this stroke on the next hole by hitting it over the 7th green. A good pitch and run to 10 feet, and Mi Hyun couldn’t make the putt. Two ordinary pars resulted in a front nine 36 for Mi Hyun.

Christina’s round- She birdied the par five 3rd hole by two putting from 20-25 feet. Then on the Par three fifth, Christina looked ready to make another birdie. Her ten footer barely missing the hole, but the putt didn’t stop. A three putt bogey four was the final result.

A bogey five after an errant drive on hole #8, sent Christina to minus four for the tournament. Christina shot 37 for the first nine holes.

Overall Christina and Mi Hyun should make the cut comfortably. They remain -4 and -5 respectively through 11 holes. The cut at present would fall at +3.
