Jutanugarn wins sister showdown
Ariya Jutanugarn triumphed in the sister showdown at the Lorena Ochoa Match Play as she advanced to the third round of the competition.
Third seed Ariya beat elder sister Moriya Jutanugarn two-and-one in the matchplay format at the Club de Golf Mexico.
Ariya didn’t trail at any point against Moriya, and will now face Pernilla Lindberg in the round of 16.
“Today we had fun because we are sisters – and we always have fun,” Ariya said.
“She plays so good. I can’t believe I beat her today because she’s so good.”
Lydia Ko also progressed after a one hole win over Jennifer Song – guaranteeing that she will stay as world number one. She will face Mi Jung Hur next up.
Michelle Wie and Cristie Kerr were also successful after beating Laura Gonzalez Escallon (three-and-two) and Jenny Shin (four-and-three) respectively.
Wie’s round included an eagle on the par five second for the second successive round, and a 20-foot birdie putt on the 11th.
“I’m happy with how I played,” said Wie.
“It was a fun but tough match. I am happy the way I’m playing, and just happy to survive.”
Wie will take on friend Marina Alex next, while Kerr faces Cydney Clanton.
Other winners included Charley Hull, Sei Young Kim, Shanshan Feng, Brooke Henderson, Angela Stanford and Carlota Ciganda.
