Kylie shot a second round -1 under par 72 to maintain her lead at the top of the Deloitte Ladies Open leaderboard, posting a -5 under par total. In the windy conditions Kylie started with bogeys on holes 10 and 12, and then recovered well;

"The conditions were definitely tougher and I made a couple of bogeys in the beginning but stayed patient and then made it back at the end so I’m pretty happy.” 

"I played slightly better yesterday but it’s always easier when the wind isn’t blowing you about. I’m loving the course and enjoying playing it and having fun. I’m feeling comfortable with my game and happy with it.”

Thailand's Titiya Plucksataporn,  moved up the leaderboard with a second round of -3 under par 70, to sit in second place with that score. She also mentioned the windy conditions;

 “It was very windy and cold this morning and a two and a half club wind when I started. I had a good short game today and when I missed the green I could get up and down. I hit 12 greens today and 28 putts. I think you need good course management on this course and think a bit because you need to leave yourself an easy putt.”

Third place is being shared by five ladies, all at -2 under par for the tournament. Kim Williams is one of those ladies and she said patience was the key today;

 “The key today was I stayed patient. It wasn’t easy and percentage golf was key. I only missed two fairways and I only missed three greens so I kept it in play but it was a tough day. This whole year for me is a learning curve so I’m just chuffed to have put myself in a position to contend.”

The home heroine Christel Boeljon gave the large galleries a reason to cheer, with her -4 under par 69 which took her into a share of 13th place with 10 other players on even par;

“It could have been lower but I think four under today is a really good round because it was windy. I was a little bit more at ease and played shot by shot. The rhythm was better in my swing. I just need to let go and play.”
