Kylie Walker continues to lead after round two in the Netherlands
 Print
Walker tees off on a blustery second morning at The International, Amsterdam

Scotland's Kylie Walker posted a second round of one-under-par 72 in windy conditions at The International - Amsterdam Airport - on Saturday morning to maintain a two stroke lead in the Deloitte Ladies Open.

The Glaswegian 27-year-old ended the day at five-under ahead of Thailand's Titliya Plucksataporn, with five players sharing third on two-under-par.

After starting with bogeys on holes 10 and 12, Walker quickly recovered with a birdie on 13. She then picked up two shots on the back nine after finishing with a pair of birdies on eight and nine.  

“The conditions were definitely tougher and I made a couple of bogeys in the beginning but stayed patient and then made it back at the end so I’m pretty happy,” said Walker, leading a Ladies European Tour event going into a final round for the first time. “I played slightly better yesterday but it’s always easier when the wind isn’t blowing you about. I’m loving the course and enjoying playing it and having fun. I’m feeling comfortable with my game and happy with it.”

Plucksataporn also played in the morning’s tougher conditions before the winds eased and the sun burst through the clouds around lunchtime. The 31-year-old from Bangkok said: “It was very windy and cold this morning and a two and a half club wind when I started. I had a good short game today and when I missed the green I could get up and down. I hit 12 greens today and 28 putts. I think you need good course management on this course and think a bit because you need to leave yourself an easy putt.”

Those sharing third on two-under were Russian Maria Balikoeva (73), looking to better her career best finish of tied fourth which she equalled in Turkey a fortnight ago, England’s Hannah Burke (73), South African rookie Kim Williams (69), Australian Nikki Campbell (72) and Sweden’s Camilla Lennarth (69), who last year finished tied fourth at The International, having led after both of the first two rounds.

Williams, making her first visit to Holland, said: “The key today was I stayed patient. It wasn’t easy and percentage golf was key. I only missed two fairways and I only missed three greens so I kept it in play but it was a tough day. This whole year for me is a learning curve so I’m just chuffed to have put myself in a position to contend.”

Lying in a share of eighth position, English rookie professional Lauren Taylor did her score no harm when she aced the par-3 seventh using a 5-iron for her eighth lifetime hole-in-one, but first as a professional.

The 19-year-old from Rugby recorded her last hole-in-one during the 2011 Allianz Ladies Slovak Open, when she had two consecutive eagles on the par-5 fourth and par-3 fifth holes, just after winning the British Amateur Championship.

She said afterwards: “KLM have offered me a flight so it’s nice to get a prize. My dad needs a flight back to England so I might use it for him.”

Home heroine Christel Boeljon gave the large galleries reason to cheer with her four-under-par 69 which took her into a share of 13th place with 10 other players on even par.

It could have been lower but I think four under today is a really good round because it was windy,” said Boeljon, a member of Europe’s winning Solheim Cup team in 2011. “I was a little bit more at ease and played shot by shot. The rhythm was better in my swing. I just need to let go and play.”
