New Zealand is in a dogfight for the runner-up spot in today’s final round of the Queen Sirikit Cup in the windy but sunny conditions at the Tanah Merah Country Club Garden course. Korea, who are looking for the sixth win in a row, raced away from the field in the second round, Kim Hyo-Joo fired a seven-under 65 to push Korea to a superb nine-under par total for the two best counting scores today to move to 11-under par after two rounds.
They are now 15 shots ahead of Australia, who in turn are two shots ahead of Philippines with New Zealand one shot further back.
Lydia Ko struggled with her putting during her round yesterday;
“I was trying to play my normal game, but I noticed I was short on a number of putts. I realised I was actually playing more conservatively compared with Wednesday. On a positive note, I started well, managed to birdie the third hole, but it was all average after that.”
