After moving day at the KPMG PGA Championship, sitting on top at 10 under par are Chella Choi and Danielle Kang, who have one LPGA victory and no majors between them. But who else is lurking?

Their nearest challenger is Jiyai Shin, the former Rolex No. 1 and two–time major winner who left the LPGA for the Japan LPGA in 2014 to be nearer her home in South Korea.

She has the experience of twice getting the job done at the Ricoh Women’s British Open and, if the wind blows today, she knows how to handle that.

Three back is defending champion 19–year–old Brooke Henderson. Last year she faced down Lydia Ko and Ariya Jutanugarn on Sunday at Sahalee and birdied the first playoff hole to take the title from Ko.

At six under par, four back, are 2015 Rolex Rookie of the Year Sei Young Kim, at 24 already a six–time winner on tour, and Amy Yang, who among her 15 top–10 finishes in the majors has the disappointment of two runner–ups without winning one of the big five events. 

Sitting at five under are major winners Lexi Thompson, Michelle Wie and So Yeon Ryu, as well as Gerina Piller and Moriya Jutanugarn, who are both looking for their first LPGA win.

This is still anyone’s tournament to win, so settle in this evening and see who can get the job done.
