Sarah Kemp / Getty Images Sarah score a second round of -4 under par 68 in the Ladies European Open in England, recording a -9 under par total and a three shot lead at the half-way point in the competition. “It was nice and solid, nothing too crazy and I birdied the two par fives, 10 and 14." “This is great. I haven’t been in this position too many times and this is where I want to be, somewhere in contention. I thought the wind was going to be up a bit more but it’s not really and not as strong as yesterday. There is definitely a bit of wind, but I’m happy with the score.” Amy Boulden and Celine Herbon share second place at -6 under par for the tournament, three shots off the pace. Rookie Amy only got in this tournament at the last-minute and now has the chance to qualify for next week’s Major, the Ricoh Women’s British Open,; “I was first reserve and I got in yesterday at 10am after someone pulled out with a bad eye so it’s great to play. I’m liking the course, it’s in great condition. I’m in a good position but I three putted the last which was a bit disappointing. I’ve got final qualifying on Monday so hopefully I’ll get a good week here,” “I’m playing very steady at the moment. I got off to a rough start and was lucky to be one under through seven or eight holes but I managed a good back nine to get it back.” Amy Boulden / Getty Images Celine Herbin / Getty Images Celine carded a -1 under par second round, and was happy to finish the round well; “It was a very nice way to finish. I hit a huge drive, six-iron second shot and I put it to four metres, so it was a very good putt. It was a difficult round, you had to stay patient in those conditions because it was very windy today and much windier than yesterday morning. The golf course is getting more and more difficult so I’m very happy." “I think it was only about patience. I was not looking for the flags, I was looking for the middle of the green and conditions were difficult. I went shot by shot and I hit 16 greens so my iron game is very good and I’m just looking for the middle of the green.”
