Lacey shoots to outright lead in LET Qualifying

Australian Dana Lacey shot a superb five-under to be outright leader of Ladies European Tour Qualifying after two rounds. The 25-year old from Scarborough in Western Australia is eight-under overall, one stroke clear of second and 10-strokes clear of the cut which will be made following round three. Barring an unlikely catastrophe, Lacey is all but certain to win her card for the 2008 season. A host of other Australians are also in a prime position to win full playing rights to the LET. As it currently stands, Frances Bondad, Kate Combes, Bronwyn-Mullins Lane, Katy Jarochowicz and Belinda Kerr would all be safely through with another couple on the cusp of qualification. The new breed of Australian women&aposs golf shone through strongly overnight when Bondad and Combes shot 69 and 68 respectively. The young and talented pair are recent graduates from Golf Australia&aposs National Squad and a strong second round will give them the confidence to finish the job and clear their first major hurdle as professionals.
