For the second round of the Ledgestone Insurance Open presented by Discraft the temperature dropped and the winds blew even harder than the day before. The day began with Jessica Weese out in front with a mere one stroke lead over four-time World Champion Valarie Jenkins. Not far behind Jessica was the young, and talented Ragna Bygde, and the always determined Paige Pierce, ready to strike. Could Jessica hold off the World Champion during round two?
The battle at the top of the leader board was exciting to witness as Val and Jessica slugged it out all the way through the second round. Valarie’s patience paid off as she finally took the lead on the last hole and threw the hot round of the day with a -4 giving her a -11 so far for the tournament and the outright lead. Edged out by one stroke, Jessica Weese stood her ground ending her day with a very decent score of -2 and -10 for the tournament. Although she is in second place, one lone stroke separates the two ladies with half the tournament left to play. Paige Pierce gave it her all today, and managed to play under par golf in the process. Paige finished the day with a -3, securing Third place. Rounding out the fourth spot was Ragna Bygde who with determination, finished with a -3 and giving her a share of third place with Paige Pierce. Who to watch on day three? Catrina Allen jumped up six places to tie with Sarah Hokom and Jennifer Allen.
The lead card for day three at the Ledgestone Insurance Open presented by Discraft will feature Valarie Jenkins (-11), Jessica Weese (-10), Paige Pierce (-3), and Ragna Bygde (-3). The spots are close and the competition will be even closer as round three begins. As always check out Lisopen.com for more information and daily recaps.
