“I was able to carry it on early this morning.”
“Then I had lunch and came right back and played another 18.”
“I just felt really confident today with my ball-striking, which is awesome, and I rolled in a few putts, too.”
“With these soft conditions you can take it pretty much right at it, which I’ve been doing.”
“To shoot scores like that you have to have everything kind of working for you and you have to get some breaks along the way, too, which I did.”
“I think playing well last night, finishing off with a hole-in-one before going to sleep was really exciting for me, and I was just able to back it up this morning, which is cool.”
Sitting in second place is Brittany Altomare,USA, with a second round -7 under 65 to post -13 under for the tournament;
Brittany said it was a long day;
“It was long, but we made the best of it.”
“I’ve been struggling this year with my putting, which is normally my strong suit, and today and yesterday, I guess last night into today, it just kind of all clicked.”
Jennifer Kupcho, USA, has third place to herself at -10 under, carding another -5 under 67 round.
Another shot back at -9 under is Annie Park, who is at -6 under in her second round with one more hole to play.
