Melissa Reid (England) leads the way at the halfway stage of the Turkish Airlines Ladies European Tour Turkish Open on -12, closely followed by Pamela Pretswell (Scotland) on -9, Gwladys Nocera (France) -8, Rebecca Artis (Australia) and Carly Booth (Scotland) on -6.
Pamela Pretswell shot the lowest round of her career to move ınto second place and was pleased wıth her performance:
“Today I played some really solid golf and made quite a few birdies out there, which was nice. I was just focusing on one hole at a time and doing what I could do.”
Carly Booth starts round 3 today in joint fourth place on 6 under after she shot 70 in both rounds.
“It’s funny because both days I’ve had the exact same stats: 11 fairways, 14 greens and 30 putts. I’m playing very steady and there were a lot of missed chances for birdie out there as well, but I’m hitting good putts, which is nice, and hopefully they will fall over the weekend.”
Carly was forgetting this is the first Ladies European Tour tournament to be played from Sunday to Wednesday. But we knew what she meant; and when asked why she was doıng well, she commented:
“I’m feeling confident with my golf swing at the moment, I’m visualising the shots a lot better and the course suits me.”
Round three of the Turkish Airlines Ladies Open continues today at the Carya Golf Club in Belek, Turkey.
