Lim reels in Blumenherst
Lim Ji-Na has reeled in overnight ANZ Masters leader Amanda Blumenherst and shares the lead after day two.
Lim Ji-Na, an unheralde4d Korean, shot a second round 66 at the ANZ Australian Ladies Masters on Friday to joined Amanda Blumenherst at the top of the leaderboard heading into the weekend.
Lim benefited from the dry morning conditions at Royal Pines Resort on the Queensland Gold Coast to shoot six birdies in a bogey-free round that took her to a nine-under tournament total
“My short game was very good and my putting as well,” said Lim.
American Blumenherst followed up her opening round 66 with a solid 69 despite suffering from nerves at having to start day two on top of the leaderboard.
“I was very proud of myself,” Blumenherst said.
“I was nervous of course, but I handled it very well, I played my game and I’m putting really well.”
There are five players in joint third, two shots back – Katherine Hull, Karrie Webb and Tamie Durdin, all of Australia, and South Koreans Ryu So-yeon and Seo Hee-kyung.
