Lang leads in Korea

Brittany Lang surged into a one shot lead at the LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship on Friday after carding a near flawless second round of 65.

Lang’s second round at the Sky 72 Golf Club’s Ocean Course started and finished with a birdie.

In between, there were three other gains as well as an eagle.There were no bogeys on her card. It was a mightily impressive display of all-round golf.

Lang’s entire game seems to be in fine working order and leading the strong field that is present in Korea this week at ten under, the American seems to be in the right space to get it done this week.

Speaking after her round, the experienced 31-year-old admitted that she was in total control of her ball throughout the 18 holes.

"It was a very enjoyable day," she started.

“The greens are really firm but roll really nice. It was such a perfect day of weather.

"Started out with a birdie on one and just really played super solid. I was really swinging at it well. Hit a lot of fairways and greens, made some long putts early, and had a cool eagle on the back and then birdied 18.

"It was just a really enjoyable, nice, solid day of play."

Alison Lee sits one-stroke back of Lang at nine-under-par with Cristie Kerr and Sung Hyun Park in a share of third at seven-under-par.
