Despite sloppy finish, Caroline Masson keeps lead at LPGA Shootout
IRVING, Texas (AP) - Caroline Masson bogeyed three of her last four holes Friday for an even-par 71, leaving her with a one-stroke lead after the second round of the inaugural North Texas LPGA Shootout.
The German player was 7 under overall at Las Colinas Country Club. She opened with a bogey-free 64 on Thursday. Spain's Carlota Ciganda was second after a 70.
South Korea's Inbee Park, the No. 1 women's player in the world, was third at 5 under along with Moriya Jutanugarn, an 18-year-old LPGA Tour rookie from Thailand, and Kathleen Ekey.
Masson was 10 under and up by four strokes before her drive at No. 15 went left and rolled right across the sloping fairway into the water. She missed the fairway again at Nos. 16 and 18, with her first and seconds shots on the final hole both stopping behind trees.
