LPGA. LOTTE Championship. Suzann Petterson Lead after Round 2. April 19 2013

Suzann Petterson leads after the second round of the LPGA, LOTTE Championship, with her total score of -10 under par. Suzann Petterson / LPGA Suzann battled hard against the elements at Ko Olina Golf Club in Hawaii, wind and rain being the main opponents against great golf. Suzann shot a second round of -3 under par 69, to lead by one shot from defending Champion, Ai Miyazato. " You’re just really trying to play the course, and what it gives us." There are certain holes you can take advantage of, and then others that are more; where par is a good score. But I think today even on the holes where I felt like I should have made a birdie and I made a par, I said, Par is not going to hurt me today.  So a decent day.  It was tough to play solid golf. Once you pick your shot, pick your club, it's go time, I mean, playing away from the pin not so much, but playing smart. So when I had a short enough club in my hand I felt like I was aggressive enough.  Just accepting that a game of perfect, it is not the day for that. So got up and down quite a few times, feeling good with my putter.  Yeah, just hanging in there today and just really trying not to get too comfortable. Just really tried to keep pushing and pressing.  I'm pretty happy with a 69 today. It's one of my strengths, I usually don't shy away when I get to the back nine.  Feeling good, feeling sharp.  I mean, par fives, I think it's tough throughout.  Doesn't really matter what kind of shot you have.  If you have a ninety yard shot straight into the wind, into the grain, you're trying not spin it; you're trying to kind of flight it. You're going through the repertoire.  It's like my caddie said before we teed up.  It's going to be a war out there.  And it was.  We had sunshine, rainbow, rain.  It was a great day." Ai was not sure if the conditions suited her; " I'm not sure if it suits me.  I feel really tough out there, I'm pretty tired now. But, you know, like I said, I grew up in the wind and I like to play in this wind. This morning when I get to the golf course I'm like, now I'm in Hawaii.  Hawaii is always windy place, and always fun to play this weather conditions. It was definitely windier than yesterday so it was pretty tough out there, but the first couple holes it was kind of up and down because I made birdie and bogey and birdie and bogey.  It was kind of roller coaster.  After that I felt like more used with this wind. Then the back nine I just made great putts out there.  It was great feeling." At five feet five inches, Stacy Lewis was the tallest player in her group, playing alongside Ai Myazato and the rookie Moriya Jutanugarn, both of them at five foot two inches. Stacy joked about talking to her caddie, Travis Wilson, who stands at six feet tall; " I told my caddie, Travis Wilson yesterday, you must feel really tall.I think it's he's almost six feet tall. It's definitely different.  I'm used to being the short one. I think what Michelle Wie was saying about her putting stance and trying to get lower to the ground, so maybe it is.  I don't know. To play well on this golf course you got to hit it straight.  I think that's the biggest thing this week." Of the terrific teenagers, Hyo Joo Kim is tied in third place at -7 under par, Lydia Ko is at -2 under par and Ayria Jutanugarn fell back following her magnificent opening round to finish the second day at -5 under par.
