Jeongeun Lee6 birdied her final four holes Friday at the Amundi Evian Championship to shoot a 10-under 61 and tie the lowest round ever in major championship history.
She led the early wave of players in the second round with a 36-hole total of 127, good for 15-under par. That also was a record for two rounds in a major championship, breaking the 129 shot by fellow South Korean In Gee Chun at the 2016 Evian.
Lee6, 25, tied the 61 fired by another South Korean, Hyo Joo Kim, in the 2014 Evian in Evian-Les-Bains, France.
The winner of the U.S. Women's Open in 2019, Lee6 had 10 birdies and no bogeys on Friday. She needed only 23 putts over 18 holes.
"Every putt looked like it was going to go in," said her caddie, David Buhai. "It was incredible. Not one nerve. Speed was just perfect.
"I had the best seat in the house and I just kept my mouth shut."
