Alex Peters, a L.E.T rookie from England, is the 36 hole leader at the ISPS HANDA Ladies European Masters, at Buckinghamshire Golf Club.
Alex shot a bogey free -9 under par 63 in the second round of the ISPS Handa Ladies European Masters, to sit on top of the leaderboard with a two stroke advantage at -11 under par.
The 21-year-old rookie equaled the Buckinghamshire Golf Club course record, she was obviously very happy with the way she played today, putting really well;
“I just played absolutely amazing. I hit my irons so close and putted really well.”
“I had a few other chances as well, but a 63, I’m really happy with the way I played today.”
“Nine birdies could have been ten. I left one right in the jaws on the 12th, the par 3, but I just putted really well, hit it close and gave myself chances.”
Charley Hull is in second place, two shots back at -9 under par, she carded a second round -5 under 67, which could have been better, she made bogey on her last hole, the par five 9th;
“I feel like I was hitting it well out there today.”
“It was a shame about my last drive but I just saw the other girls and the wind brought their drives to the right. I thought if I try and hit a hard draw down there, but it stayed on my line and so I was a bit annoyed.”
“Apart from that I feel like I’m playing solid and I hit a great drive into the eighth hole, but I just missed that putt, because I came up on it.”
“Apart from that I’m pleased with the way I’m hitting it and where I am going into the weekend.”
First round leader Sophie Giquel-Bettan is in third place at -8 under par, her second round -2 under par 70 keeping her in touch with the leaders, the conditions being a little breezier than they were for the morning players.
Tied in fourth place on -7 under par for the tournament are, Nontaya Srisawang, Caroline Masson and another rookie, Emily Kristine Pedersen, who only graduated from high school last Wednesday.
