Getting through 18 holes in professional golf without making a bogey is impressive.
The co-leaders at the Honda LPGA Thailand have yet to draw a square of their scorecards, and they’ve played 36 at Siam Country Club.
Nasa Hataoka and Su Oh led after the opening round and refused to give up the top spot on Friday. Both have tied the tournament’s 36-hole scoring record, originally set in 2018 by Jessica Korda and matched by Patty Tavatanakit in 2021. Hataoka and Oh have each posted scores of 63-65 and are at 16 under through two rounds.
“My ball-striking wasn’t like, the impact wasn’t very good today. I was just kind of scrambling really well out there,” said Oh. “I was like, come on, you want to hit some good shots before going into tomorrow. Such a long day, so I don’t think I would want to hit balls after.”
Oh’s ball-striking looked decent on 18, where she pulled off this incredible second into the par-5 last, nearly making an albatross.
Just one back at 15 under sits Celine Boutier, who has fired a 65 and a 64 in the first two rounds in Thailand. Nanna Koertz Madsen joins her at 15 under. In solo fifth is Xiyu Lin at 14 under. Four shots back of the lead are Jennifer Kupcho and Canadian star Brooke Henderson.
