Dubai Update - In Kyung Kim and Michelle Wie

.
Today in Dubai, I.K. was more than just OK.

She turned in a bogey-free 7-under 65 to equal the Majalis course record on the second day of the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters at the Emirates Golf Club. The stellar South Korean, who won the State Farm Classic in June, said she felt club selection had been key to her sizzling round and acknowledged her caddy, Terry McNamara, who definitely knows his way around in Dubai. He was with Annika Sorenstam when she won this event in 2006 and 2007.

Just two shots back, alone in second place, is Michelle Wie who carded a 68 to follow up her opening 69.

I guess you could say the Stanford student has been multi-tasking this week... studying for finals while playing golf, sightseeing and attending gala events in Dubai... well, she was in a celebratory mood today after finding out she'd aced one of her exams.

And speaking of aces, Spain's Tania Elosegui used a seven iron to ace the 160-yard, par-3, seventh today. That helped put her in a tie with Amy Young of South Korea for third place.

Christina Kim, who shot 70 today in an awesome lime green outfit, is currently in a tie for 19th.

The ladies are currently at the half-way mark as the tournament finishes Saturday Meaning...much more to come.
