Advertiser Staff

Stephanie Kono shot a 4-under-par 68 and was tied for fifth as play was suspended because of darkness today in the second round of stroke play at the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship at Pueblo, Colo.

Kono was at 3-under 141, four strokes behind clubhouse leaders Hannah Jun of San Diego, who shot a 71 today and Mina Harigae of Monterey, Calif., who shot a 70.

Inclement weather caused two delays during the second round and was suspended by darkness at 8:24 p.m. (4:24 p.m. Hawai'i time). The second round will continue tomorrow morning at the Walking Stick Golf Course.

Following the second round, the top 64 players in stroke play advance to match play.

Other Hawai'i players who finished their rounds and were poised to make the cut were Kimberly Kim, who shot a 76—149 and Mari Chun (75—150).

Christine Kim (84—157), Lori Planos (77—159), Cyd Okino (81-159) and Jaclyn Hilea (82—159) were below the cut line as of this afternoon (10-over 154).

Amanda Wilson on the 17th hole (8-over overall) when play was suspended. She is one of 13 golfers who will finish the second round tomorrow.

Kelly Nakashima of Maui withdrew from the tournament.
