In a scorching second round, Nelly Korda did not miss much to achieve the very first card under the 60 in the history of the Olympic Games. After a -6 go and 5 birdies on the return, the American came in at 18, 11 strokes under par. One last birdie and the feat of 59 became reality. Unfortunately, it did not happen and the world number 1 even made a double bogey synonymous with 62. A score that propels her all the same to the top of the standings at -13 total and 4 strokes ahead of her first pursuers, Nanna Koerstz Madsen, Aditi Ashok and Emily Kristine Pedersen.
Delacour et Boutier top 30
As in her first turn, Perrine Delacour returns a card of 70 (-1). Her total of -2 places her in 27th place in a very tight classification where the top 11 is only 2 strokes away.
Céline Boutier has it, restarted the machine after her first average lap (+2). The French number 1 brought back a second card of 68 (-3) which repositioned it in 30th position.
The weather forecast is scorching at Kasumigaseki Country Club. The organization has therefore decided to send the teams of 1 and 10 for the next round. The last day is still scheduled for Saturday but could be contested on Sunday or even not to argue at all if the conditions do not allow it.
