Su Oh's improvement continues in Michigan

Australia’s Su Oh threw out indications last week that her game had made a turn for the better when she made her first cut in her last six starts on the LPGA Tour.

This week she continued that improvement when adding a second consecutive 69 to be inside the top twenty through 36 holes of the weather-delayed Meijer LPGA Classic in Grand Rapids in Michigan.

The event has again been impacted by a delayed schedule caused by weather issues earlier in the week and several players will still be required to complete round two on Saturday morning.

Oh reached the turn in 3 under 33 today and although that momentum slowed over her closing nine she added a late birdie for her 3 under round.

Oh has finished 13th and 4th in this event in each of her last two starts in this event so the Blythefield Country Club is one that clearly fits her eye and she is again providing evidence of such.

Oh trails the 2017 winner, Brooke Henderson, by a massive ten shots, the Canadian champion three ahead of American Brittany Altomare with Jennifer Kupcho another three shots back in 3rd place.

Henderson added a second consecutive round of 64 to race clear of the field, her 36 holes to date having included 15 birdies, a hole in one in yesterday’s first round and a bogey today. Her Ace came at her 6th hole on day one, en route to an outward nine of 31.

Oh is therefore just four shots out of second place and with her confidence building this weekend shapes as a chance to record a high finish on the LPGA Tour after what has been a disappointing run of form prior to last week.

Minjee Lee is 37th and Katherine Kirk 55th amongst the other Australians.  

Lee finished her round strongly after a missed cut appeared a possibility early in her round and she is now at 4 under par and two behind Oh but 12 from the lead.

Katherine Kirk will also make the cut but is well back, while Sarah Kemp appeared on track to make her first cut in several starts until a late bogey cost her a start in the weekend field.
