The greens at Tartan Fields are pretty pure, and are apparently proving to be easy to read. The course has given up more birdies than Floyd Landis has given excuses for his positive drug test.

As co-leader Soo Yun Kang said after her round of 66, “I like the greens. I can read them. It’s almost perfect. When I hit it straight, I can make every putt.” Fellow South Korean Jee Young Lee shot a 65, to remain at a tie for the lead at -11. Jee Young is unique in switching between two different putting grips on the course based on what’s working. Apparently, it’s working.

The leaderboard is jammed packed at the top, with a distinctly international flavor. Just look at the leaders:

Jee Young Lee – South Korea
Soo-Yun Kang – South Korea

Mikaela Parmlid – Sweden
Marisa Baena – Columbia

Brittany Lincicome – US
Lorena Ochoa – Mexico
Karrie Webb – Australia

Joo Mi Kim – South Korea
Paula Creamer – US
Stacy Prammanasudh – US
Ai Miyazato – Japan

Diana D’Alessio – US
Wendy Doolan – Australia
Birdie Kim – South Korea
Cristie Kerr – US
Natalie Gulbis – US
Kris Tschetter – US

ESPN2 will have Saturday coverage at 2 – 4 p.m. Split morning pairings are here.
