 United States veteran Cristie Kerr produced three birdies in her last six holes for a second round of 73 to hold a slender one-shot lead at the halfway stage of the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open.
The 39-year-old from Florida carded a double bogey at the long fifth and dropped shots at the short sixth and 11th in a near gale at Dundonald Links on Friday, but then fought back with birdies on the 13th, 14th and 17th to move ahead at five-under-par.
Australian Karrie Webb lies in second after a 75, while South Korean pair Sei Young Kim and Sun Young Yoo fired rounds of 72 and 69 respectively to sit a shot further back at three-under-par.
Kerr, who claimed her 19th LPGA title at the LOTTE Championship in Hawaii in April, said: “It was tough. I hit it so well yesterday, and I mean, that shows you the difference. I didn’t hit it that great today but I still managed. My caddie and I managed the golf course well, and we made the recovery shots when we needed to. I’m trying not to get ahead of myself in this weather.”
