Mirim carded a second round -2 under par 69, to join Brooke, who sadly signed for a +2 over par 73, at the top of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship leaderboard both with -2 under par totals.

Lurking close behind the leaders are World number one Lydia Ko, -1 under 70 today, Gerina Piller, -2 under 69 and Brittany Lincicome also -1 under 70 today. These three have -1 under par totals and are just one shot off the lead heading into the weekend.

Lydia spoke about the tough cold and wet conditions, and is happy to be in a good position to push for the title;

“As we made the turn, it got much cooler and the rain came.”

“It was really tough out there. I feel like I’m in a really good position.”

  Brittany mentioned the snowball effect when things start to go wrong;

“You let one hole out here get you down, and it snowballs very quickly.”

“I think distance on this golf course is a huge advantage.”

Ariya Jutanugarn blamed her putter, as she crashed to +4 over par 75, she is now T23 at +3 over for the tournament;

“I must have lipped out five times.”

“I tried so hard to stay positive today, it was really tough conditions and it is a major.”

Inbee Park missed the cut, a sad round of +8 over 79 sent her dreams of a fourth successive win crashing down, she hinted that her injury was the real reason, and she will now re-think her schedule;

“I started refreshed, it just didn’t happen to be my day. It was tough out there.”

“I think I will have to really re-think, I might need some time to really get better.”

The round of the day was -4 under par 67, by 46-year-old Catriona Matthew that got her to +1 over par for the competition.

You can tell this is a Major, as only five players are under par going into the weekend.
