Tiffany Joh, USA, leads the Ladies Scottish Open by three shots after 36 holes at Gullane Golf Links in Scotland.
Tiffany shot a second round -4 under par 67 to maintain her lead at the top of the Ladies Scottish Open leaderboard with a -13 under par total, a 45 ft putt on the first got the ball rolling;
“I had pretty low expectations for today, to be honest.”
“I honestly probably would have taken anything under par, but on the first hole right away we made like a 45-footer, and I just started laughing.”
“It was a really good start and I guess I just kept rolling with it.”
“I think there are so many little subtle breaks on these greens that you’re almost better off just kind of like taking a really generalized approach to green reading and not really overthinking it, which is perfect because I never overthink anything.”
“I think maybe they just fit my eye really well.”
Sharing second place at -10 under par are Ariya Jutanugarn, Thailand, -6 under 65 today, and Amy Yang from South Korea, with her second round -5 under 66.
Amy has tennis elbow;
“I injured my arm early this year and had to take some time off and I just couldn’t practice much and I didn’t have good momentum.”
“It’s getting better and I feel like I’m getting more good momentum going on and also I’m hitting it good.”
Ariya went round bogey free today;
“I’m a little surprised because I didn’t play golf for like two weeks. I didn’t practice at all, and I don’t really like windy or links course.”
“So I feel like after two rounds ten under is pretty good.”
