Rookie Min Lee had yet to be much of a factor on the LPGA tour until the second round of the U.S. Women’s Open. On a tougher day for scoring, Lee went out and birdied four of her first six holes. She shot a blistering 31 on the front nine, and ended with a 68 for the round.
“I feel like my iron shots were pretty good today and I was trying to be aggressive to attack the pins, for more chances at a birdie,” Lee said.
She faltered a little on the back nine, shooting 37 without a birdie. The back nine is commonly thought of as the tougher nine at Lancaster Country Club.
“I think the back nine is a little longer, so I was a little upset that I made two bogeys. But I will take that score. That’s really good for me,” Lee said.
Lee is now at 1-under par for the tournament and in contention heading into the weekend.
