Kim A-rim (28) said the reason she reduced 7 strokes on the second day of the LPGA Tour’s first major Chevron Championship (total prize money of 5.1 million dollars) was because of the rain.
In the second round of the tournament held at The Club Carlton Woods (par 72, 6824 yards) in Woodland, Texas, USA on the 22nd (Korean time), Kim A-rim hit a daily best 7 under par 65 with 8 birdies and 1 bogey, leading by one stroke (8 136 strokes under par).
Kim A-lim, who started from 23rd, added birdies on the 13th, 14th and 17th holes after a bogey on the 10th hole followed by a birdie on the 11th hole. In the second half, she added birdies on the 2nd and 4th holes, then cut another stroke on the par 5 17th hole, then added a birdie with an exquisite iron shot right next to the hole on the last hole, leading the leaderboard alone.

On this day, 11 out of 14 fairways were hit, and 15 greens were hit. Instead, the number of putts was excellent with 26. After the game, Kim A-lim said, “The greens were soft and the overall speed was slow, so I could hit aggressively, so he scored 7 under par.”
When asked what he liked in particular, he replied, “My putting inside 130 yards and inside 6 yards is strong, but it was done well.” So, the game would have been stopped due to rain, but about his mindset at the time, “My goal is to be simple. To be able to simplify what I have planned, that is my goal.”
Therefore, the strategy for the rest of the weekend was, “I will do my best every time I can, and I think I have already completed my preparations during practice,” and finished the interview, saying, “I plan to play tomorrow according to my condition.”
Kim A-lim, who won the largest major US Women’s Open held in the late fall in the United States due to Corona 19 in 2020, took the opportunity to win two tour victories in the majors in three years. Active on the US tour since the 21 season, he has won the KLPGA Championship held in Korea, but has not yet won the US stage since becoming an official member.
With 11 out of 16 Korean players playing on the weekend, JTBC Golf will broadcast the entire round live.
