L.E.T. Open de Espana. Lee-Anne and Celine Lead July 19 2013

Open de España Lee-Anne Pace and Celine Herbin are tied for the halfway lead in the Open de España after two rounds at Club de Campo Villa de Madrid, with both Ladies on -8 under par for the tournament.

Celine  with consecutive rounds of -4 under par 68, is pretty happy with her game right now; "I’m happy with my game, pretty steady, only one bogey, 32 holes without a bogey, which is my record. I didn’t miss too many shots. I hit 17 greens, yesterday 16 greens, so I’m very happy with my game and enjoying it. My coach knows the course very well, so he’s helping me a lot. He’s Seve’s brother, Vicente. Spain is my second home, I’m French but I’ve been living in Spain for the last seven years." Lee-Anne with a second round of -3 under par is also happy with her game, and mentioned the heat; Lee-Anne Pace / Getty Images "I played pretty solid: 15 greens today. I didn’t think I struck the ball as well as yesterday but still 15 greens, 15 birdie chances. When I missed it I only just missed the green. I’m just going through a really good time with my golf. There are some really hot spots you walk through. When the breeze is there it’s fine but sometimes, like on the ninth tee, that’s hot!" Jai Yun Li and Isabella Ramsay are tied in second place at -6 under par. Jai Yun commented that it was actually cooler here than in China last week; " Last week I was in Shanghai and it was even hotter so here is fine for me. I’ve been having some good rounds I just need to be a bit more consistent." Melissa Reid and Valentine Derrey share fifth place on -5 under-par, with Klara Spilkova, Tania Elosegui, Joanna Klatten and Mikaela Parmlid one shot further back. Yesterdays leader Cheyenne Woods collapsed with a second round of 78, that is 14 more shots than round one, she finished with -2 under par total. Cheyenne still signed autographs after her disappointing round, something that Uncle Tiger would probably not have done after that ignominy; “I survived!  The course kicked my butt but I’m alive. I get to play tomorrow so that’s good and I definitely learned a lot. After yesterday it’s hard to shoot eight under and come back and not have the expectations to play that well again so it’s my first year and that was my first time being in the lead and it was definitely exciting. I didn’t make many putts today and then again I didn’t give myself that many chances. I wasn’t as sharp as yesterday. This is golf and it’s the reason why I love the game. You never know what to expect, every day is different and I’m just going to go back out tomorrow and grind it out." Good Luck Cheyenne, I hope you have a better round tomorrow.
