Uribe makes her move Down Under
Last updated: 15th February 2013
Colombia's Mariajo Uribe carded a round of 67 to take the second round lead of the LPGA Tour-opening Women's Australian Open on Friday.
Uribe finished her second round on 15 under par, one stroke ahead of first round leader Lydia Ko - the 15-year-old New Zealand amateur - and South Korea's Shin Jiyai, who shot rounds of 69 and 67 respectively.
The Colombian started her round on the pack nine, making a birdie on the par-four 10th at the Royal Canberra course, before adding four more birdies in her bogey-less round.
Shin, a two-time major winner - had eight birdies and two bogeys in her round, while the record-breaking Ko shot five birdies and a bogey - her first of the tournament - in her round.
Ko played her first two rounds with world number one Yani Tseng - who followed up her opening round of 67 with a 71 on Friday - and pin-up Michelle Wie, who looks likely to miss the cut after rounds of 74 and 73.
