Becky Brewerton is in a three-way tie for the lead after Friday’s second round the Evian Masters in France.

Welshwomen Becky Brewerton is in a three-way tie for the lead on nine under par with Japan’s Ai Miyazato and Korean Na Yeon Choi after the second round of the Evian Masters in France.
Brewerton and Choi both shot four-under 68s in Evian-les-Bains for a second day while Miyazato posted an impressive 6-under 66.
Overnight co-leader In-Kyung Kim is a shot further back.
Brewerton, who won the Open de Espana on Sunday, was on course to hold the lead on her own after carding four birdies and an eagle, but two bogeys in her last three holes set her back.
The 26-year-old said: “My short game was excellent. Everything was great. I holed a couple of really nice putts again, chipped in (at the fifth hole) and just felt very good in all parts of my game.
“Obviously there’s a touch of disappointment because I got to 11 under. This is a really tough course to not have any bogeys. It would have been quite an achievement not to. (I’m) disappointed I did at the end, but I would have taken 68 at the start of the day.”
Choi, who lost at Evian last year on a sudden death play-off, is hopeful she can go one better this time.
“I feel really confident. Yeah, I think I can do it,” she said.
Miyazato was also upbeat after her round.
“I feel great. I mean, this is my sixth time at Evian, so I have been playing here for years. I’m very happy with the way things went today.”
A group of five players are on seven under, while world number one Lorena Ochoa is nine shots off the lead on level par and American teenager Michelle Wie one shot better off.
