“Actually I hurt my middle back today, this morning actually.”
“So this one, just bothering me on my swing, and especially with my driver.”
“So I missed a lot of fairways today and so I just focus on my ball because my ; bothering my swing, so I don’t want to think about my swing. Keep my focus on my ball and I just be patient just like yesterday.”
Lydia carded -5 under par 67, to climb into second place at -8 under par, with her putting suddenly coming to life;
“It was kind of a slow start, I gave myself quite a few opportunities the first couple holes, and I didn’t make any.”
“And then on the fifth hole, I holed a putt that I didn’t expect to make and then I hit a good shot into 6 and another good shot into 9.”
“I had a couple that were like two feet, three or four of them. So that makes it a whole lot easier, and again, not reading the putt as much.”
Charley Hull and Xi Lu Lin share third place, both at -7 under par for the tournament. Charley with a -2 under 69 today and Xi Lu -2 under 70.
Suzann Pettersen shot the low round of the day, a bogey free -6 under par 66, which puts her T7 at -4 under par for the competition.
