ShopRite LPGA Classic R2

Jeongeun Lee6 on track for back-to-back wins on Sunday

June 07-09
Seaview Hotel & Golf Club, Bay Course, Galloway, New Jersey
$1,750,000
Round 1, Round 3

Jeongeun Lee6 made a 4-foot eagle putt on the 18th hole Saturday to take the lead after two rounds of the ShopRite LPGA Classic.


Lee6’s a 2-under 69 on the Bay Course at Seaview took her to 10-under 132. She will enter Sunday’s final round seeking to become only the fifth player in LPGA history to win the U.S. Women’s Open and the following tournament in back-to-back weeks.

Only Louise Suggs (1952), Jane Geddes (1986), Se Ri Pak (1998) and Meg Mallon (2004) have accomplished the feat.

Mariah Stackhouse, who contended at this event last year and finished in a tie for seventh, shot a 67 and held second place with a 133 total in her quest to become the first African-American woman to win an LPGA Tour event.


Lexi Thompson four-putted No. 1 for a double bogey but recovered with an eagle and two birdies for a 70 that put her into a three-way tie for third at 134 with Ally McDonald (67) and Nanna Koerstz Madsen (68).

Sei Young Kim, seventh on the LPGA money list, and Sandra Gal each shot a 68 and Yu Liu had a 69 to tie for fifth at 135. Marina Alex, who is from Wayne, New Jersey, posted the low round of the day – a 66 – and was part of a group of four 136.

Players who teed off in the morning scored lower after the wind kicked up around noon and blew steadily at around 20 miles an hour. Among the top 12, only Thompson, Koerstz Madsen and Liu began their rounds in the afternoon.

Lee6, who shared the lead with Pornanong Phatlum overnight, was 1-over for her round after a bogey at the par-4 15th. But she finished strong, holing a 17-foot putt at the short par-3 17th for her fourth birdie of the day, and knocking a 6-iron from 185 yards out to set up her short eagle putt at 18.

In her two rounds, she has two eagles, 13 birdies and seven bogeys.

Phatlum followed her 63 on Friday with a 77 Saturday that she closed out with an eagle at 18. Defending champion Annie Park missed the cut of even-par 142, coming in with a 74 for 143.
