The Female Tiger

They converged, 9 of the world’s top 10
For the 2nd Sime Darby LPGA tournament
At the KLGCC pitting their prowess
Led by last year’s  inaugural winner
World’s #1 Tseng Yani , a Taiwanese professonal
Who came with impressive credentials

Dubbed the female Tiger
And currently on the US LPGA Tour
For the 2nd day yesterday she carded a four-under 67
To surge into reckoning for a share of the 3rd spot
At eight- under 134,  within striking distance of the leaders

The leader, Stacy Lewis with a record breaking feat
Sizzled with a 65 at nine-under to share the lead
With Brittany Lang (the 2011 British Open  runner-up ) at 133
Thanks on the back nine to a string of 6 birdies

Going into the 3rd round today though
Both shouldn’t be too happy
As others on the leaderboard
Are too close for comfort
Going into the weekend we’ll see
Some fun it’s going to be

What of the male Tiger lurking in the Woods
He recovered on the endorsement trail
After losing out big time on lucrative deals
He lost Tag Heur but recently gained Rolex
Not much can be said of his recovery  in play
Since the fiasco had not won any on the fairway

At a recent tournament it happened
Had the indignity of a sausage thrown at him
Fans are expecting 2012 to be a good year
So is Tiger, I’m sure!
