Matilda Castren was one stroke away from the weekend’s rounds of the LPGA tour race in the United States.
The Finn, who was circling the LPGA for the first time, needed 74 strokes for the second round, while the first one was 72 strokes.
After two rounds, Castren had a total of six over a pair. The third round would have survived with a score of over five.
Casteren had the best period of his career behind him, which brought him, among other things, a rise in the world list to become Finland’s number one player and his first actual victory as a professional. It happened on the second tour.
Last in the races, only a couple of random double blogs were found on Castren’s scorecard, but in the second round that ended the night before Saturday, two of them accumulated.
Castren’s opening strokes hit the fairways 100 percent, but there were difficulties in the approaches. Green hits were accumulated in only eight holes, four less than the previous day.
Castren will play his last and tenth race of the year on the LPGA under Christmas, the final tournament of the tour in Florida.
This South Korea, second on the world list in the middle of the week’s race Kim Sei-young leads the beat apart before the US Ally McDonaldia.
The Korean, who recently achieved the first major victory of his career, is scoring eight under a pair.
