Inbee carded a second round -5 under par 66 to sit on top of the Rio Olympic leaderboard in Brasil, with a -10 under par total;

 “I think first coming here, I didn’t really know whether I was going to play this week or not due to the injury.”

” Obviously didn’t expect much of a result.  It was more of, you know, whether I can play or not.  So I mean, a good result is a great gift.”

Charging into second place was Stacy Lewis, from the U.S.A. scoring a fantastic -8 under par 63, an Olympic record, which gave her a -9 under par Ladies Tournament total;

“I was excited from the get‑go with the announcement of the Olympics.”

” There are probably a lot of reasons why we shouldn’t have come and shouldn’t have done this, whether it was Zika or other issues.”

“I just did my homework and nobody gave me a good reason why I shouldn’t come.”

” You’d have to ; I mean, there’d have to be something seriously wrong with me to not come play in the Olympics.  This has been so cool.  Just a different feel about it.”

Sharing third place are Brooke Henderson, Canada, with -7 under 64 today and Charley Hull of England, -5 under 66. Both ladies have -8 under par totals.

Brooke said;

“I feel Britt (her sister and caddie) and I came up with a really good strategy for this course over the last week or so, along with Team Canada.”

“I think so far, it’s been pretty good.”

” But like I say, there’s still lots of golf left and hopefully I’ll just continue to play smart but take advantage when I can.”

Charley is looking for another good round tomorrow;

“I don’t really look at what I do.  I just kind of get off the golf course and go to the gym. “

“I don’t really analyse where I am.  I just kind of think, oh, yeah, I played decent, another round tomorrow.”

World number one Lydia Ko has dropped back, -1 under 70 today giving her a -3 under total, and a lot to do tomorrow to get into contention for a medal, she is correctly T22.
