Lee leading lady in Scotland
Last updated: 19th August 2010
Jeehae Lee shot a second round of 70 to take a one-stroke lead over England’s Trish Johnson into the final round of the Ladies Scottish Open at Archerfield Links.
The Korean, who is based in Florida, finished on a two-under par total of 142 with a round to play in East Lothian.
Johnson, who led after opening with a 69, carded a 74 to finish the day in second, with five players in a group two shots back.
They were Rebecca Coakley (70), Sophie Walker (70), Stefania Croce (74), Nikki Garrett (74) and Christel Boeljon (75).
Lee said: “I’m finally learning how to play a links style golf course. “I kept it pretty steady on the front nine. There were a couple of the par fives that I could reach.
“On the back nine I started hitting it a little bit off line off the tee but managed my way around.”
Johnson was frustrated with her second round of 74, saying: “I played pretty rubbish yesterday and got away with it and today I just played rubbish. I hit the ball shockingly.
“I didn’t hole anything. I think that was probably the difference. I’ll go to the range and hope that I can start finding the middle of the clubface, because it’s becoming quite frustrating.”
Scotland’s Vikki Laing was the leading home player and lies six shots off the pace after a second round of 74.
