The South Korean Chun In-gee, number eleven in the world and already winner of three majors, is the new leader of the British Women’s Golf Open, the fifth and last major of the year and which is played on the Scottish course at Muirfield, thanks to a card this Friday of 66 strokes (5 under par) in the second of the four days.
Chun, 27 years old and who was already champion of the 2015 US Open, the 2016 Evian Championship and the PGA this year, leads the duo formed by the South African Ashleigh Buhai and the Swedish Madelene Sagstrom, who delivered the same card this Friday: 65 hits (-6) and eleven places rise.
The South Korean Park Inbee, winner of seven Grands, is placed alone on two. The new leader completed a round this Friday with six birdies for a single bogey. She accumulates 134 hits (8 down) thanks to the 68 with which she opened the tournament on Thursday.
The leader on the first day, the Japanese Hinako Shibuno, fell to seventh place after failing the second with a lap of 73 (+2), eight more than she needed on Thursday, with only one birdie for two bogeys. Among the Spanish, she only surpasses the Ana Peláez cut, with +2 in the accumulated.
