The following is a news article from Washington, D.C. (AFP): Annie Park demonstrated exceptional skill during the US LPGA Dana Open in Sylvania, Ohio, by achieving a remarkable total of eight birdies. Notably, she completed an impressive streak of five consecutive birdies on Friday, which contributed to her securing a two-shot lead in the tournament.
Park, who secured her only LPGA victory at the ShopRite Classic in 2018, equaled her best round by shooting an impressive eight-under 63 at Highland Meadows. With a total score of 11-under par (131), Park currently holds a two-stroke lead over three players, led by recently crowned U.S. Women’s Open champion Allisen Corpuz.
Park expressed satisfaction with their recent performance, stating they had executed exceptional shots during their activity. The player demonstrated a solid ability to rebound from poor photos and quickly regain their performance. The user’s performance today was commendable. Park initiated her tee shot on the 10th hole and achieved a birdie on the 13th. Following this, she consecutively attained five birdies from the 18th and fourth holes.
The user successfully secured her position at the top of a highly competitive leaderboard by adding two birdies at the seventh and eighth holes.
On Sunday, Corpuz secured her first major title at Pebble Beach. She demonstrated her skill again by delivering a second round without any bogeys, achieving a remarkable score of five under-par 66.
The individual in question was accompanied by two other participants, Jaravee Boonchant from Thailand and Linn Grant from Sweden, previously tied for the lead. Both Boonchant and Grant scored 69, scoring nine under 133 for all three individuals.
Corpuz expressed satisfaction with her performance over the past two days, noting that the fatigue she experienced after her successful Open campaign and subsequent travel delays could positively impact her current situation.
The individual expressed that the fatigue has somewhat alleviated their nervousness. When venturing onto the field, my primary objective is to maintain a consistent approach by striving to execute well-placed shots.
According to Corpuz, observing proficient golfing can be beneficial. Ko was impressed by Corpuz’s exceptional ability to sustain her concentration.
