Pressel ties course record, co-leader at Kia

Friday, March 27, 2015 8:30pm

(Reuters) - American Morgan Pressel is threatening to end South Korean born-golfers' domination of the early LPGA season after firing an eight-under-par 64 on Friday to tie for the second round lead of the Kia Classic in southern California. Pressel, who tied the course record, joins South Korean Lee Mi-rim at 10-under-par. South Korea-born players have won all six of the LPGA’s tournaments so far this year, but Pressel is looking to bring that run to an end and earn her first victory since 2008. “It was kind of stress-free golf out there today,” Pressel told reporters.

Walker's six-under-par total of 138 put him one in front of overnight leader Charley Hoffman, who posted an even-par 72 and was joined on 139 by Australian Aaron Baddeley, who shot a 71. It was a further stroke back to another Texan, Jordan Spieth, who carded a 69 and was tied on 140 with Kevin Na, who shot a 68. Walker, pleased to be playing in front of family and friends, took advantage of improved weather to grab two birdies in his first five holes before his only bogey of the day, at the par-four 17th.
