Park Sung-hyun says PH bet Yuka Saso is “really good.”

Park Sung-hyun continued to impress, and the South Korean World No. 1 continued to be impressed by Filipino amateur Yuka Saso after another round playing together in the $100,000 TCC Ladies in Laguna.

Park was bogey-less in shooting a six-under-par 66 and fattened her lead to four with a 36-hole 135 aggregate, before heaping praises yet again on the reigning Asian Games gold medalist, who carved out a 68 to stay in second place.


“Putting was the key [today]; I stroked them better compared to the first round,” the 25-year-old Park, seeing action in her first tournament since vaulting to No. 1 last Monday, said.

Then she said of Saso: “She hit some great shots today. She’s really good.”


Princess Superal stood 10 shots clear after matching par, with Dottie Ardina slipping another two strokes behind following a 74.

“I had to keep up with her, otherwise, she would have pulled away,” said Saso.
