Ariya Jutanugarn had five birdies in a six-hole on the back nine and shot a 6-under-66 on Friday to take the lead of the second round in the LPGA Tournament’s windy and rainy Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open.
Play in the morning in wind speed up to 40 km / h at Dumbarnie Links, and bird Jutanugarn with the no. 12 and 13 and 15-17. The 25-year-old Thai star won the 2018 tournament at the Gullane Golf Club.
‘I felt like it was windy after playing yesterday afternoon, and I feel like it’s going to be better in the morning today, but actually it’s not like that, so the wind has been blowing really hard since the first hole and the last three holes even worse, ”Jutanugarn said. “I feel pretty happy that I’m done before everything comes.”
Jutanugarn has two wins this year, the Honda LPGA Thailand and Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational event with sister Moriya.
“I don’t really feel like I’m really confident, or I have no confidence at all. But I just think I should go to myself daily,” Jutanugarn said. “When I say I still have so many things to work on, and for me, I just want to relax on the course, because I know that if I cool down on the course, everything will take care of itself.”
Jutanugarn were 9-under 135 overall, three strokes ahead of fellow Thai player Atthaya Thitikul (70), England’s Charley Hull (69) and Denmark Emily Kristine Pedersen (69).
“I left a few shots on the back nine,” Hull said. “I left a shot of 7, 8 feet an inch from the hole, but was dead in the row. But the greens were slower today and they did not cut them double. Felt really good. Nice to be home. to be, even in Europe. Feel more at home. “
Pederson has two eagles along with five birds and six kids.
“I only missed eight greens in two days, which is pretty solid,” Pederson said. “I hacked very well. It’s obviously frustrating to feel that so many parts of the game are good, and then not a little pit.”
“In the series, I just prepared a control shot,” Lee6 said. “The green is a little slow today. So I focused on just speed, putting.”
Michele Thomson of Scotland, the first-round leader after a 65, had an 80 to draw in the 45th on 1 over. She had a bird and nine kids.
Defending champion Stacy Lewis was also 1 over after a 74. She won at The Renaissance Club last year.
