Lydia had rounds of 74 and 72 for a tournament total of +5 over par, nine shots off the pace of the leaders; American Vicky Hurst, German Sandra Gal and Suzann Petterson of Norway, who are all at -4 under par for the tournament. The cut line was set at +6 over par, so well done Lydia, and good luck in the next round.
