RANCHO MIRAGE: India’s Nishtha Madan made solid progress with a three-under-68 that took her 14th after 36 holes.
The other three Indians had a bad day as Saaniya Sharma (78-73) and Nikita Arjun (77-74) were T-211 and Sharmila Nicollet (76-77) were T-247.
Nishtha, multiple Cactus Tour winner, said, “Feels great. I’ve played very stable from the start and hit almost every fairway and green today which made it easier.”
“Had a solid drive at # 16 and 224 yards to the flag, Hybrid hit the short-sided rough just to the right of the green and chipped for Eagle.
“I approach it like it’s the first round tomorrow and play with the mindset that every shot is my first shot of the week or of the day so just keep that state of mind,” she said.
A second day in a row in the 1960s, Agathe Laisne from France took first place in the LPGA Qualifying Tournament Stage I ranking with a total of 11 under par.
A total of 85 players finished the second round with an even par overall or better, while 158 participants finished the second round with a three over par overall or better.
