Kim Sei-Young leads trio in blustery conditions at LPGA Thailand halfway mark

Posted : 23 February 2024

At the midway point of the $1.7 million LPGA Thailand, South Korea's Major winner Kim Sei-young, along with Sweden's Madelene Sagstrom and local talent Patty Tavatanakit, are leading by one shot in challenging windy conditions at Siam Country Club Pattaya. Tied for fourth at 10-under are Switzerland's Albane Valenzuela, Thailand's Jaravee Boonchant, and Korean world No. 9 Kim Hyo-joo.


Valenzuela produced the lowest round of the day with a seven-under-par 65, joining the leaderboard mix. Defending champion and World No. 1 Lilia Vu from the United States sits at tied 30th after carding a 67 following her opening-round 73.


Co-leader Kim Sei-young, a 2020 Women's PGA Championship winner, posted a 68 featuring four birdies and an eagle, marred slightly by two bogeys in the final three holes. Reflecting on her performance, Kim expressed disappointment with the closing holes but highlighted her solid play on the front nine.


Meanwhile, Sagstrom, ranked 65th globally, maintained consistency with another five-under 67, echoing her performance from the first day. Sagstrom, content with her overall performance, acknowledged a solid start in the front nine but expressed a desire for additional birdies in the back nine.


The windy conditions in the afternoon posed challenges for some players, impacting Thursday's leader, Taiwan's Chien Peiyun, who carded a 72 following her impressive opening round of 64. With the leaderboard tightly packed, the LPGA Thailand remains highly competitive as players navigate the challenging conditions in pursuit of victory.
