GLADSTONE (New Jersey) (AFP) World number one Jiyai Shin and red-hot Ai Miyazato of Japan booked their second-round berths at the LPGA Sybase Match Play with comfortable victories on Thursday. As Tuesdays rainy weather gave way to sunny skies over a wet course, Shin beat fellow South Korean Kyeong Bae 3 and 2. Miyazato, the second seed and winner of three of the first six LPGA events of the season, downed South Koreas Jeong Jang 4 and 3. But third-seeded Norwegian Suzann Pettersen tumbled as US veteran Juli Inkster rallied for a 21-hole triumph. Inkster, 49, made a 10-foot birdie putt on the par-five 18th to force extra holes, then finished off Pettersen with a four-footer for par at the par-three third. If Suzann and I played 10 days in a row, she would probably beat me seven, said Inkster, a 31-time LPGA Tour winner in her Hall of Fame career. I was never up in the match all day, so its just match play, its weird, Inkster said. I dont think we both played our best golf, but thats the thing with match play. Even though youre playing the third-best player in the world, if you make a few putts and hit a few good shots here and there, you have a shot. Michelle Wie emerged from a tight match with a 2-up victory over fellow American Stacy Prammanasudh. Wie took the lead with a 30-foot birdie putt on the par-three 16th and won 2-up with a conceded birdie on 18. It was a fight. She played extremely well, Wie said. It was one of those matches where you had to make birdie to win, so kind of with that mindset, I went out and grinded and just tried to make birdies. Wie, the eighth seed will face Hee Young Park, a 19-hole winner over Ji Young Oh, in the second round Friday at Hamilton Farm. Shin will play another South Korean, Hee-Won Han in the second round, while Miyazato will face South Koreas MJ Hur. Inkster will face South Koreas Amy Yang. South Korean veteran Se Ri Pak, who won the title in Mobile, Alabama, last week in a playoff, dropped a 3-and-2 decision to Spains Azahara Munoz, while 62nd-seeded Beatriz Recari of Spain upset American Brittany Lincicome, the match play winner in 2006 at the same venue. Recari claimed a 1-up victory even though the long-hitting Lincicome had 60-70 yards on her off the tee. I had to be very strong mentally, said Recari, 23. I just had to focus on my strengths. Fourth-seeded Yani Tseng, fifth-seeded Cristie Kerr and number seven Karrie Webb also advanced, while number six Anna Nordqvist dropped a 2-up decision to Shi Hyun Ahn. Tseng beat Wendy Ward 2 and 1, Kerr topped Meaghan Francella 4 and 3, and Webb eliminated Eun-jung Yi 4 and 3. After Fridays second round, the third round and quarter-finals will be played Saturday and the semi-finals and final on Sunday.
