She’s at it again: Angela Stanford has been the hottest player in women’s golf going on six months now, and during the second round she fired a 67, the low round of the tournament so far. That propelled her into a tie for 6th, four back of In-Kyung Kim. I talked to Stanford after her round and she’s oozing confidence right now. I expect her to go deep again on Saturday and put herself in position to win her second tournament this year.
I will also be keeping an eye on Karrie Webb, who is tied for second after a smooth 68. Webb remains one of the premiere physical talents on the LPGA but the interest level of this Hall of Famer seems to come and go. I watched Webb play a couple of holes today and she’s pretty locked in, so she should be a big factor the rest of the way.
One player I won’t be watching is Michelle Wie. After a day of ragged ball-striking she barely made the cut, and barring a sixty-nothing tomorrow won’t factor in the outcome. Frankly, it will be a relief to do an LPGA story and not have to write about her. Recap | Scores | Photos: Round 2 | Photos: Papago Golf Course
