Nicole Broch Larsen keeps ahead of the chasing pack in the Helsingborg Open at Vasatorps Golf Club in Sweden.
Nicole carded a second round of -4 under par 69 to stay ahead in the Helsingborg Open with a tournament total of -9 under par.
Nicole said this is where she wants to be, and her putter is working well;
“This is where I want to be.”
“Today I had a bit of a bad start. My front nine was not as good as I wanted but on the back nine I made a couple of birdies in a row and just kept going.”
“I’m a long hitter, so I had some short irons into some of the par fives, but then I missed some of the fairways as well and didn’t get up and down.”
“On the back nine, I hit it close and got the putter going so it was nice to bounce back that way.”
Ashleigh Simon from South Africa, is in second place following her -8 under par 65, giving her a total of -8 under, She was really proud of her achievement, and sinking three birdie putts in a row;
“I’m really chuffed. I got off to a really good start, three birdies in a row, lipped out on my fourth and then holed a really nice putt from off the green on the par three 14th.”
“Unfortunately I bogeyed the 18th, which was my ninth, but nine was in my head and I nearly got to it.”
“I putted really well today, hit some nice shots and just converted them.”
“I found something this week and worked on it over the phone with my coach, Doug Wood.”
“My grip had got quite strong, so I weakened that a little bit. I’d been hitting it left the last few weeks and was just getting it around.”
Swedish rookie Lina Boqvist holds third place at -7 under par, her second round -5 under par 68 giving her that place on her own.
Katie Burnett of the United States is a stroke back in fourth spot at -6 under par, while the chasing pack of six ladies are on -5 under for the competition.
