Stephanie Meadow is just three shots off the pace after two rounds of the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open.
The 24-year-old, ranked 419 in the world, made six birdies and added a second round 69 to her opening 66 to tied-second with In Gee Chun behind world number two Ariya Jutanugarn, who is three shots clear on 12 under after a blemish-free round of 64.
“I didn’t have my best game today and I still shot 69," Meadow said. "So I think everyone’s going to have a bad nine holes throughout a four-round stretch, and I’ll just keep going tomorrow and hopefully get the ball striking back and make some birdies and have fun.
"This is what we work for. This is our environment to be out there on the leaderboard. So it’s going to be fun. I’m going to enjoy it.”
Five players, including world number one Lydia Ko, are a further shot back at eight under par.
