The leader Ruoning Yin having suffered his first accident of the week at the 18th hole on Saturday, the Chinese double bogey reopened the post to his competitors in this Stage II access cards to the American circuit. With “only” a 69 (-3), Yin is still in the lead, but at -13 in total she is only one small unit ahead of her main rival, Pauline Roussin-Bouchard. Like Thursday during the first round, la Varoise negotiated the Panther Course of Plantation Golf & Country Club in 67 (-5), alternating six birdies for a single bogey. At -12, she is on the heels of the Chinese and can claim to go to win the tournament this Sunday, for the honor. “Of course I think about it”, she admits, “But the most important thing is to be faithful to my process, to my routines, and to keep the same strategy that has paid off so far. ” Whether or not she wins today, “PRB” seems certain to win her ticket for the final of these American cards, since she has eleven strokes ahead of 46th place!
