Nasa Hataoka of Japan holds on to the top spot on the Marathon LPGA Classic leaderboard on the second day at Highland Meadows Golf Club in Ohio.
Nasa carded a -2 under par 69 round which included six birdies, four of them consecutively late in her back nine; to post -12 under par at the top of the Marathon LPGA Classic leader board;
“My shots were not as good as yesterday, didn’t have that many chances. I had a lot of problems, but I was able to fix that for the last part and bring it back up.”
“I was kind of stiff on impact and I was able to realize that and adjusted to relax myself and that brought those birdies.”
In second place at -10 under is Mina Harigae who had a second round -5 under par 66;
“I feel really confident, comfortable with all aspects of my game.”
“Just everything just kind of feels solid and everything is kind of flowing together, so it feels really good.”
Alison Lee and Elizabeth Szokol both signed for -5 under 66 today to claim third position with totals of -9 under.
Alison is really happy to be in contention once again;
“It’s been a really long time since I’ve seen my name on the leaderboard like this.”
“Putting myself in contention for the weekend, it feels really, really good. It almost makes it as though two years didn’t happen, which is awesome to feel.”
Elizabeth is looking forward to another 36 holes;
“I’m just really looking forward to it, 36 more holes.”
“I really like this golf course, so just see what the weekend brings. I’m excited to have fans back.”
