Aussies lead the way

Three Australians fill the top spots after the second round of the Ladies Masters at Royal Pines on the Gold Coast. Nikki Campbell leads the way on minus 10 after a seven-under-par round of 65 which included seven birdies. Kristie Smith is a shot further back after a remarkable round of 62 which catapulted her up the leaderboard along with Katherine Hull who is a shot further back after a second-round 67 to follow on from a solid opening round of 69. Rebacca Flood is in a tie for sixth after two solid rounds of 69 while Francis Bondad (70) and Cherie Byrnes (71) are on minus four and a share of 12th spot with countrywoman Dana Lacey(70). Overnight leaders South African Lee-Anne Pace (70), Norwegian Marianne Skarpnord (72), Korean II-Hee Lee (74) and Welshwoman Becky Brewerton (73) all dropped off the pace with steady rounds but remain in the hunt.
