Shin Ji-Eun Hae-Ran (2-1 over) was the favourite to advance to the round of 16, but her match-queen challenge was halted by Riona Maguire (3 wins) and Lindsey Weaver Wright (2-1 draw). Kim also drew 1-1 with Cheyenne Knight (USA) on the day, but just missed out on a win to advance to the last 16. She had a one-shot lead going into the 17th hole, but a bogey on the 18th (par-4) ended her hopes of reaching the last 16.
Looking to bounce back, Lee lost by four shots to Canada’s Brooke Henderson at the sixth hole to fall to 1-1-1. Ji-hee Lee, the defending champion with a win on the first day, lost to Lynn Grant to finish 1-2-2.
