American Diana D’Alessio carded a second-round 68 to take a one-shot lead at the New Zealand Women’s Open.
D’Alessio followed up her opening 67 with a sparkling round which was bogey free until the 13th where she found the water and took a double-bogey.
They were her first dropped shots of the tournament but her halfway total of nine under par was nevertheless enough to give her the lead heading into the weekend
“On this course you are going to make bogeys as it is a hard course, but I made a few great par-saving putts like a 15-footer on the eighth to keep the string going,” D’Alessio said.
“You obviously want to play bogey-free but that’s not realistic.”
Midway through the event, D’Alessio holds a one-shot lead over Australian Sarah Kemp.
A shot further back are South African Ashleigh Simon and overnight leader, Marianne Skarpnord of Norway, whose 73 was eight shots more than her outstanding first round.
Twelve-year-old Lydia Ko shot 73 and stands at level par.
