Exclusive report by Agathe Seron, Evian Masters.
Stacy Lewis continues to stand tall in carding a second round 69 and lead the field by one shot at 12-under par heading the weekend rounds of the Evian Masters.
Korean Il Hee Lee confirmed her good form to remain the closest challenger to the American player after signing for 67 for an 11 under par total.
Paula Creamer is tied in third place with Korean Inbee Park who fired 64 to be at eight under par.
But, as often Evian Masters buzz keeps its promise and rookie Cheyenne Woods wrote a chapter of the “Pink tournament” by making the cut for the first time in her career.
Cheyenne has charmed fans and journalists alike as the player with the most smiles in the field.
“I am so excited playing this week-end. I am in the money for the first time and I feel so great,” she said.
“This is awesome. I want to keep on playing the way I do. I hit the ball really good and the experience I had during the past two tournaments I played will for sure help me. I am more confortable.
“It was fun to share the day with Daniel Kang as we are roomates this week.
“Less pressure on course as I am far from Usa? I don’t know, may be, by there is some pressure obviously. The Evian Masters is such a big tournament and I am so thankful to be here.”
Even if Tiger Woods is not playing this week, the odds are extremly low on seeing him in Evian this week-end.
But he is assured of looking at this part of the world.
“But for sure he is looking at the scores but not really the kind of twitting or something else,” said Cheyenne..
“He is too busy.
“But I am not going to wear a red shirt on Sunday. It will be pink naturally !
”French journalists ended the interview teaching her some words “many birdies : beaucoup de birdies”, “Good luck : Bonne Chance !”
