South America - not Korea - dominating leaderboard at U.S. Women's Open: Park and Granada rolling
SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. – All this “South Korean dominance” talk has all been very premature at the U.S. Women’s Open.
They’re fading fast.
Currently, only one South Korean is within three shots of the lead. The rest are falling to 1-over and higher.
That said, most of them are sitting at or above the cut line.
The story? How about a 1-2 South American punch? Brazil’s Angela Park (who has Korean parents) and Paraguay’s Julieta Granada are rolling. Who knew south of the equator was such a powerhouse - and this, coming on the heels of Angel Cabrera’s U.S. Open victory.
USA’s Great Blonde Hope is Morgan Pressel: 3-under for the day and tournament.
