L.E.T. Ladies Slovak Open. Gwladys Joins Line at the Top. June 21 2013

Allianz Ladies Slovak Open presented by Respect Gwladys Nocera joined Line Vedel at the top of the leaderboard in the Ladies Slovak Open, both at -6 under par for the tournament. Line Vedel / Getty Line added a -1 under par 71 to her opening round of  67 to end the day tied at -6 under par, after a second day of scorching conditions at Golf Resort Talé. She said she likes to swim in these very hot conditions; " I swim quite a lot when I’m here. It’s so warm that I don’t feel like going for a run but I stretch a lot and drink vitamin water. You need to eat and when it’s this warm I don’t really feel like eating. I had so many chances but missed quite a lot. I hit some bad shots in between and made some bogeys so it was up and down. I’m happy I was under par." Gwladys Nocera / Getty While several players struggled with the  30 degree's Centigrade of heat, Gwladys played very well, drinking lots of water; “I just played well. I hit 17 greens and I’m hitting the ball better than yesterday so I really tried to stay patient. This course is really demanding, physically and mentally. You’ve got to drink a lot of water, if you have energy drinks and it works for you, it’s good. Normally I drink water and eat a little bit frequently. I try to stay in the shade, which is hard, because there are not many trees around. I’ll try to stay patient and not get mad, because it’s a waste of energy." Camilla Lennarth is alone in third place at -4 under par, she is missing her normal driving accuracy; " Driving is normally my strength, but this week it’s my weakness. I would say that I’m happy with my round, especially after yesterday when I struggled the first 15 holes and birdied the last three holes. I missed the ball left a lot but it was much better today. The first round co-leader Nikki Campbell, stumbled to a  second-round +6 over par 78. That was 11 shots worse than her opening round of 67, but the Australian LET rookie was still only seven shots from the lead in a share of 19th place. The cut was made at +5 over par and the current ISPS Handa Order of Merit leader Charley Hull was looking precariously close to the cut line after going +6 over par on the front nine, but she rallied to birdie her last three holes for a -4 under par back nine, to finish two shots inside the cut line at +3 over-par.
