Sixteen days after emergency surgery for an appendicitis, Shin birdied her final hole to shoot 2-under-par 70. She’s tied for 10th at 142, eight shots off the lead. Shin was the No. 1 player in the world until Ai Miyazato took the top spot this week.
“It still hurts a little bit, but it’s much better today than yesterday and I expect it should be even better tomorrow,” Shin said.
Miyazato rallied with a 71 to make the cut. She’s at 147.
