Kim Fires 62 at CN Canadian Women’s Open
Anna Rawson has been shopping for birdies
at the CN Canadian Women’s Open.
BIRDIE, BIRDIE, BIRDIE, BIRDIE, birdie, birdie. Ever started a round that way? Neither have I.
Six straight birdies filled the front-nine scorecard of Song-Hee Kim in today’s second round of the CN Canadian Women’s Open in Calgary, Alberta. Kim threw in a couple of pars, then birdied the final two holes to post a 7-under-par 28. She backed it up with a 34 for a sizzling 62 on the 6,427-yard par-71 layout, a tournament record.
How did she do it?
“I just try—I mean the first thing, I just try and hit the ball on the fairway,” Kim said, “and then the second thing, I just try and hit the pins, and then make a putt.”
Sounds easy enough.
Kim is tied for the lead with Suzann Pettersen at 9-under. Anna Rawson shot a 64 in the opening round, holding the tournament record for 24 hours.
