Sarah Jane Smith, from Australia,, leads after 36 holes in the ISPS Ladies Australian Open at Royal Adelaide Golf Cub, in Australia.
Sarah shot a second round -6 under par 67 to lead the ISPS Ladies Australian Open at -9 under par at the half way point in the competition, and is thinking of winning;
“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think about it but obviously that’s not the main focus of the next two days.”
” I mean, obviously, it would be a dream come true and something I think every young Australian thinks about at some point.”
“So, to even be in a position right now is pretty exciting.”
Four ladies are tied in second place at -8 under par, Caroline Hedwall, Sweden, -4 under 69 today, Lizette Salas, U.S.A. -3 under 70, Pornanong Phatlum, Thailand, -3 under 70 and Marissa Steen, U.S.A. -2 under 71.
Marrisa had a few hiccups in the middle of her round today;
“I have been before, never on LPGA or anything like that but on Symetra Tour I have been and I think for me it’s just staying within myself and staying confident and just going out and kind of, like I was saying yesterday, putting the blinders on and just focusing on what I need to do.”
” So, I was letting some outside distractions get to me there in the middle, but I was proud of myself for blocking those out and just sticking with my game.”
Pornanong had one bogey today, but had fun out on the course;
“Today I just tried to play with my confidence, the wind is most problem, so I just wait.”
“I just go have fun and enjoy on the course.
World #1 Lydia Ko made the cut on the number, even par for the competition, seems like the recent changes have not done her much good. Should have stayed with the tried and trusted.
