Saso upbeat despite 2nd round cancellation

Stormy weather forced the cancellation of the second round of the Stanley Ladies Golf yesterday, reducing the event to 36 holes with money leader Yuka Saso four behind a bunch of leaders with an opening 75 at the Tomei Country Club in Shizuoka Prefecture.

Organizers halted play early morning due to poor course condition spawned by a typhoon and decided to call off the round altogether. 

The 108-player starting field struggled in wet conditions Friday with the ICTSI-backed Saso slowed down by strong wind, rain and cold and limped with five bogeys against two birdies for joint 31st. Only the top 71 made the cut at 5-over.

Despite down by four, the 19-year-old Saso expressed confidence of a big comeback in the last 18 holes in an attempt to snap a string of so-so finishes after sweeping the NEC Karuizawa and Nitoro Ladies titles last August.

"It gets hot and cold here suddenly, so it's difficult to prepare," said Saso of the wicked weather conditions. "I can't control the scores of others, but I hope I can enjoy playing golf as usual."

Na-Ri Lee, Mayu Hamada, Hina Arakaki, Naruha Miyata, Miyu Yamashita, Saki Asai and Miyu Shinkai all shot 71s to take charge in the Y100 million tournament with Player of the Year frontrunner Sakura Koiwai and five others a stroke behind with 72s. (Jeanne Cortez)
Korean Au-Reum Hwang, who ruled this event cut to 27 holes also due to adverse weather conditions last year, carded a 73 for joint 14th.
