HARRISON, N.Y. -- In conditions on Friday at the KPMG Women's PGA Championship that were more demanding than Thursday's first round, seven-time major winner Karrie Webb played like the seasoned veteran she is and carded a 2-under 71.
The 71, along with Webb's 68 on Thursday, gave Webb the early clubhouse lead in the second round at 7-under 139.
"I just think the greens are firmer," Webb said. "It's just a little more challenging to get the ball close. The wind is out of a slightly different direction so the course -- I think the longer holes yesterday played a lot shorter than they -- a lot longer today than they did yesterday. So I think that's making a little bit more challenging. It's hard to get -- tucked pins and then the greens are getting firm, it's hard to get it in there close."
Though it may have been challenging, Webb made it look easy. Her lone bogey on the day came at the par-3 16th hole, but she recovered from that with a birdie at the final hole.
"Nice to finish with a birdie on the last," Webb said.
Webb's last major victory was nine years ago at the ANA Inspiration. In terms of regular LPGA events, Webb last won in March of 2014 at the JTBC Founders Cup.
At 40 years old, Webb is doing what you'd expect a successful, gritty veteran to do -- she limits mistakes.
"I feel comfortable with where I put myself," Webb said of her 7 under total through two rounds. "Who knows if that will be leading or tied for the lead or one behind tomorrow. I'm just really happy to have played the course really solidly for two days and see what happens on the weekends."
