19 year-old Emily carded a second round -6 under par 64 to lead the Lacoste Ladies Open de France tournament by three shots with her -9 under par total.

Emily told reporters about her best ever professional round, after starting the day with a bogey;

“After the rough start I was very happy about finishing six under.”

“It’s given me extra motivation to prove I’m good enough to be here, because I wasn’t good enough to get into the tournament.”

“It’s a narrow course so you have to be accurate with your irons and shots into the greens.”

Celine Herbin holds second place at -6 under par, with a -3 under par 68 today. She was happy to be in contention;

“I’m pretty happy with the result.”

“The end of the round was a little up and down. I had a very nice eagle on 15, which was two centimetres from being an albatross, and after I had a double and finished with two birdies.”

“I have a very good feeling for this weekend. My game is in good shape.”

“It’s always very nice to play in France instead of wherever in the world and I feel very comfortable here. A lot of people are cheering.”

“I was supposed to be playing in a Symetra Tour event this week but I changed my mind to play here. It was a good decision, I think.”

Third place is shared between another Dane Malene Jorgensen, and first round leader Gwladys Nocera, both at -4 under par for the competition. After leading yesterday Gwladys could only card a +1 over par 71 in the second round.

Malene was happy to see Emily at the tournament;

“It’s always fun when a lot of people from Denmark are playing well.”
