Cheyenne shot a -6 under-par 67, with a bogey six on the card at the par five eighteenth, to have a share of the lead at Royal Pines in Queensland, Australia, at -10 under par for the tournament. Stacy was bogey free in her second round.
Cheyenne enjoyed her day;
“It was a great today. I played really steady throughout the entire round. My putter was working really well for me and I was hitting the ball really well. Like I said, it was a steady day; my highlight was definitely my tenth hole, holing from the fairway. I would say overall my whole game was pretty good; putting was definitely what helped me today. My one bogey was a three putt but besides that, I wasn’t hitting it extremely close, but I was making ten to fifteen footers, so it was great.”
Stacy talked about the Pro-Ams and her caddie;“I don’t normally play the Pro-Ams and it seems like they are paying off. The ALPG has done a great job hosting all those events to lead up to this and given us internationals a chance to get a nice warm up and I think it has done me the world of good.” “I have been playing well the last couple of weeks. I have a good caddy on the bag, Steve Walsh and he’s kept me calm and nothing really fazes him and he knows what to say to me at the right time.”
Trish Johnson is in third place alone at -9 under par after her second round -7 under par 66.
Camilla Lennarth is fourth at -8 under par, with a second round of -6 under par 67.
Kate Burnett, who shared the first-round lead with Jessica Korda, shot a -2 under par 71 on Friday, leaving her three back of the leaders. Jessica slipped up on the back nine and finished with an even par second round of 73. Charley Hull shot a bogey free -7 under par 66 to get within three of the lead.
On a sad note Defending champion Karrie Webb has been sensationally disqualified from the Australian Ladies Masters for signing an incorrect scorecard.Karrie signed a scorecard for +1 over par 74, which would have been good enough to keep her above the cut at +2 over par for the tournament, but officials quickly challenged her card, claiming she’d bogeyed the par 5 12th, which Karrie's card showed as par. She had already alerted the officials to the error and knew her fate. Karrie later Tweeted “To all the sponsors and fans of the Volvik Australian Ladies Masters, I’m sorry for letting you all down.”
