SAN MARTIN—The U.S. Women’s Open was decided by a club grazing the sand.
Lydia Ko was tied for 52nd place before the start of Friday’s second round of the U.S. Women’s Open at CordeValle in San Martin. But two rounds later the world’s top-ranked player finds herself in a familiar position: on top of the leaderboard entering the final round of a tournament.
SAN MARTIN—So first of all, I cannot oversell just how amazing it is to walk around Cordevalle and hear the languages being spoken and the accents of those speaking.
While the world’s top ranked female golfer Lydia Ko made her move back into contention at the 2016 U.S. Women’s Open, a trio of Korean competitors landed in the top three spots of Friday’s second-round leaderboard at Cordevalle Golf Club in San Martin.
The first round of the U.S. Women’s Open went off with the top golfers charging hard out of the gates, with nine players shooting 3-under or better to open things up.
With media credential in tow, I spent a couple of hours walking the golf course at CordeValle on Thursday for the first round of the U.S. Women’s Open. So what’s the spectator experience for a tournament like this? Pretty enjoyable—and that’s an understatement.

Darrin Gillies could not have asked for a better start to his professional baseball career. On Tuesday night, Gillies was pitching in the Midwest League All-Star Game. The next morning, he was on a flight to join his new team, the Bakersfield Blaze. Gillies went from the low-A level to the high-A ball level in half a season. The timing was fortuitous for Gillies, who still has roots in Hollister.
