Kim Sei-young, Ciganda, Yin, Zhang share lead at LPGA Match Play Tournament

Posted : 05 April 2024

After the second day of stroke play at the LPGA Match Play tournament, Kim Sei-young of South Korea, Carlota Ciganda of Spain, and Americans Angel Yin and Rose Zhang emerged as co-leaders.


The tournament, held at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, introduced a revamped format featuring three rounds of stroke play, with the top eight advancing to the weekend match play. Ciganda's bogey-free five-under par 67 propelled her to the top alongside Yin, who carded a 68, Zhang, who posted a 73, and day one leader Kim, who scored a 74.


Ciganda expressed satisfaction with her performance, emphasizing the importance of accuracy on the challenging Shadow Creek course. Ireland's Leona Maguire and Japan's Minami Katsu shared fifth place with rounds of 69, while Japan's Yuka Saso and England's Jodi Ewart Shadoff trailed closely behind.


The top eight players, including Maguire and Katsu, were set to compete in the match play quarterfinals on Saturday, with contenders aiming to secure their spots through Friday's final stroke-play round.


As the battle for the top eight intensified, several players, including Canada's Brooke Henderson and Sweden's Maja Stark, aimed to break into contention. World No. 1 Nelly Korda and France's Celine Boutier found themselves in a share of 20th place, with Yin and Zhang remaining optimistic despite challenges faced during the round.


Zhang, in particular, struggled with brisk winds but remained resilient, while Kim's late surge with birdies on the final two holes elevated her into the co-leadership position, reflecting the fierce competition at the tournament.
