Emily Pedersen, from Denmark, is still on top of the Hero Women’s Indian Open leaderboard after the second round on the challenging Black Knight Course at DLF Golf and Country Club in India.
A +1 over par 73 second round was good enough to keep Emily on top of the Hero Women’s Indian Open, in the demanding very hot conditions in India. It could have been better, but frustratingly the putts would not drop;
“It could have been better but I’m happy with my score. My game was much better than yesterday. I just didn’t hole the putts.”
“My approach was just the same; keep to the same game plan as yesterday.”
“I hit a lot of good shots, 12 fairways and 14 greens. I didn’t hole a lot of putts.”
“All pins are tough on those greens but I think the LET staff and the tournament direction is good at putting pins in the best positions.”
Becky Morgan holds second place with an even par score, a -1 under par 71 today keeps her in touch of the leader.
Malene Jorgensen has the third position to herself at +1 over for the tournament with an even par round, and said it was a red hot putter that helped;
“I played very good today and my putter was hot so I’m happy with my round.”
“I hit the ball close and my putter was good. That was the secret.”
Giulia Sergas, who was tied for the lead on one under par after 17 holes, but fell back when she carded a triple bogey eight on the par-5 18th. She is tied for ninth with Thailand’s Saraporn Chamchoi on three over par.
Giulia said of the triple incident she was;
“About to chew someone’s head off”
“It was just the wrong club, wrong decision with the first shot and second shot. I’m now plus three, so you never know. If it happened to me it could happen to anybody.”
