On October 11, Beijing time, due to the approach of Typhoon No. 14, the weather was too bad, and the stadium was heavily watered, the Stanley Electric Women’s Golf Tournament (total prize money of 100 million yen, championship prize money of 18 million yen) was forced to shorten from three rounds to two. Round, the bonus will be distributed at 75%.
Due to the shortening of the competition, the elimination line is also determined according to the results of one round instead of two rounds. However, originally only the top 50 players could advance to the final round, now it is changed to the top 60.
After the first round of the Stanley Electric Women's Golf Tournament, a total of 7 players led by 71, one under par. It became the game with the largest number of leaders since the 1990 Women’s Day Tour record entered the final round.
Due to the first round, Shizuoka Prefecture Tomei Country Club (6572 yards, par 72) had very bad playing conditions, and the leaderboard was actually very crowded. Shi Yuting shot 73, only 2 shots behind, but he was already tied for the first place. 14 bits. For her, Sunday is definitely a good opportunity to win the first championship of the Women's Japanese Tour.
"Indeed, I am in a good position. Tomorrow I will start in the same group with Shin Jiae and the defending champion Ah-Reum Hwang. I am really looking forward to it," Shi Yuting said. "It's only 2 shots away from the leader and it becomes After two days of competition, there must be many possibilities, not just for me. You see that there are as many as 7 leaders, and the scores of the dozens and 20s are very close. I think everyone has a great opportunity. The key is to see who plays well on the spot and wins this event in the end. I must adjust my state and see what the result will be tomorrow."
Typhoon days, all kinds of weather must be prepared. But at least Shi Yuting has already experienced the first round of hard work, so she has a psychological foundation.
Shi Yuting recalled the first round and said: "Yesterday the weather was very bad, and the whole process was very windy. How strong was the wind? I remember there was a 135-yard par-3 hole. I wanted to tee off with a 5 iron against the wind. It feels like adding 3 and 4. If I attack the green from 160 yards and encounter strong winds, I need a three-wood to attack.
"Moreover, the rain has always been moderate to heavy rain, back and forth without stopping. In addition, the temperature suddenly dropped. Japanese news broadcasts also said that yesterday, including today, the last few days are basically the same as in mid-November. Temperature. Yesterday's body temperature, I think it was about 10 to 13 degrees.
"To be honest, I'm quite satisfied with yesterday's performance. In such bad weather, it is no longer the kind of forward and more bird-catching of regular games. Yesterday's game is completely stronger than who has the willpower and who is more patient. ."
Of course, Shi Yuting is not the only one looking forward to making a breakthrough on Sunday and achieving her first women's Japanese Tour Championship. Among the 7 leaders, Miyata Chenghua, Shinkai Miyu, Yamashita Miyuyou, Hamada Moyu did not win the tour.
In addition, Chinese Taipei player Lu Xiaoqing is only one shot behind and tied for eighth place. Of course, her championship experience is quite rich.
It's only a pity that Lu Wan shot 81 in the first round and has already been eliminated.
