HSBC Women's Champions. Karrie is Cruzin. February 28 2014
Karrie Webb / GettyKarrie shot a second round -3 under par 69 for a half-way total of -9 under par, a two shot advantage over Angela Stanford. Caroline Hedwall was keeping pace with Karrie, right up until the par five 18th hole, where Caroline found herself in a difficult position, so difficult that she could not extricate herself from the problem, carding a 7 and dropping back to -4 under par for the tournament. Apart from a few bad swings Karrie was pleased with her round; “A few loose swings on the back nine today which didn't happen yesterday but recovered pretty well from them, only two bogeys and to shoot 3 under, I think I'm pretty happy with that. Anything on the 60s on this golf course is a good day. Thirteen was a pretty soft bogey there, just missed the green there and really wasn't a difficult up and down and didn't get it up and down there. Made a good up and down on the next for par, and then I hit it in the water off the tee on 15, so actually made a really good bogey in the end.” Angela loves Singapore, she won this event last year, when it was played at Tanah Merah Country Club. Angela also signed for a second round of -3 under par 69, and remains in contention, just two shots adrift of the lead at -7 under par; “I’ve always loved coming to Singapore, the people are so friendly and it’s just a great place to be for the week. And HSBC is obviously an amazing host. It’s just a nice place to be, it’s a great week. I just think it’s whether you’re comfortable, good meals at night. When I’m in the States I control my environment a little more than when we’re here. But they’ve done a great job for us. I guess I can throw in the Air Weave thing. The beds have been great. I didn’t know what to expect but that’s been a lot of fun to get to sleep on that every night.” In third place at -6 under par is Teresa Lu, who carded a second round -2 under par 70. Caroline explained what happened on 18; " It was just a bad lie and I was trying too hard to get it close, I don’t know, it was just one of those moments when you want to walk off the golf course. I was just playing solid golf and made a couple of birdies. I felt really good about my game today it is just sad that I finished that way with two three putts and then this finish on 18."
