U.S. Women’s Open Day 2: More fans and windy weather
The weather on the second day of the U.S. Women’s Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links started mild, with the promise of winds picking up into the afternoon. The course’s weather report forecasted gusts as high as 27 miles per hour, which promised to create additional challenges for golfers on the course.
There appeared to be more spectators on the course, and fans seemed in a great mood.
Libby Tower came out to Pebble Beach from Eugene, Oregon. She said it was great to see the U.S. Women’s Open at Pebble Beach.
“It's about time,” Tower said. “I think that the women's game is really catching on and hopefully will continue to grow in a really healthy fashion.”
Monterey native Mina Harigae started her second round just before 2 p.m. She finished two over par and tied for 39th place on the first day of the tournament. Harigae said she’d be making very minor adjustments for play on Friday.
“I hit my driver very well, and then I figured something out with my putting… so it's just very minor stuff,” she said.
Harigae will need to place around 60 or better to move to Round 3 on Saturday, July 8.
