Hopes remain high for a home victory at the Women’s Open as Bronte Law and Charley Hull finish day two in joint fourth, only five shots off the lead.

British number one, Law shot an impressive 67 including five birdies while Charley Hull, bidding for her first major title endured a rollercoaster of a day. Three birdies in the first eight holes were followed by three bogeys on the next six before she salvaged a 70 with two late birdies.

Defending champion, Georgia Hull, enjoyed a second successive bogey-free day to complete another round of 69 and close the day on -6. Laura Davies however, had more of a need for tissues after adding to her first round +10 with a 75 to miss the cut with a score of +13.

South Africa’s overnight leader, Ashleigh Buhai, extended her lead to three shots after carding a 67 including five birdies to close the day on -12.

Hot on her heels at -9 is Japan’s Hinako Shibuno and one shot behind her is America’s Lizette Salas, who birdied the first four holes of the day.  Also in the hunt is world number one, Ko Jin-young on -6. She is joined by fellow South Korean, world number two, Park Sung-hyun.

Day three is sure to be full of action and excitement and the home crowd will be in full voice supporting the British girls.
