Mi carded a second round -9 under par 62 to take the 36 hole lead in horrendous weather conditions, causing a 2 hour and 21 minute delay. She sits on top at -14 under par, saying she had a lucky draw today;
“I got a really lucky draw for this week. I had the morning yesterday and afternoon today.”
“I know it was really tough this morning, but sometimes I need luck for those things.”
Moriya Jutanugarn, Thailand, is in second place, two shots back at -12 under, after her -5 under 66 round; she too had a better draw today;
“I don’t want to complain about anything, because it’s something you can’t control, and also I think I’m pretty lucky as I was in the afternoon today.”
“It’s tough out there and I actually feel bad for the girls, everyone who played in the morning.”
“It was so tough. I think they hung in there and they did a good job.”
Tied in third spot at -11 under are Anne Van Dam, Netherlands, -2 under 69 today, and J. Lee6 with her second round -6 under 65.
Anne also had the better weather;
“We got definitely lucky with the weather today, so that was the big thing.”
“As soon as we got out on one, it was sunny, so I thought, it’s nicer now, take some advantage of that. My back nine could have been a bit better, but overall it was fine.
Dame Laura Davies from England had the highlight of the day, in the middle of the horrific storm, she made a hole-in-one at the 152-yard par three fifth hole;

“It’s probably the second-best round I’ve probably ever shot because obviously needed to have a good round to make the cut, and I had a six under 66 in Canada years ago in similar conditions but that’s as close as I can get to it.”
“It was horrific out there.”
