Here’s what you missed from Round 2 of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship
The third women’s major championship of the season is already halfway over, and Hannah Green has a commanding three-shot lead heading into the weekend.
Here’s everything you missed from Friday’s action at Hazeltine National.
First-round leader Hannah Green followed her opening round of 68 with a second-round 69. She’s seven under par overall. The 22-year-old Australian is seeking his first major — as well as her first LPGA Tour victory.

Two-time major champ Ariya Jutanugarn is three shots behind Green’s lead, while another two-time major champ, Lydia Ko, is also within striking distance at only four shots off the lead. Neither Jutanugarn or Ko has won a Women’s PGA Championship.
Another 🐥 for Lydia!
Lydia gets to 3-under and is tied for third at the @KPMGWomensPGA.

Defending champ Sung Hyun Park (-3) and Nelly Korda (-2) are also in the mix. Lexi Thompson is six shots back at one under par overall.
Michelle Wie made headlines on Thursday for her tearful post-round interview after posting an opening 84. On Friday, the struggle continued, as Wie posted eight bogeys and a double-bogey en route to an 82 to miss the cut.
The famously tough Hazeltine National was no easy task for the women this week, as every player who was five over par or better earned the right to play the weekend.
Notable players to miss the cut include Karrie Webb (+6), Morgan Pressel (+6), Shanshan Feng (+6), Anna Nordqvist (+7), Paula Creamer (+10), Laura Davies (+11), Stacy Lewis (+11), Jennifer Kupcho (+15), and Michelle Wie (+22).
