Saturday, 5 August 2017 : South Korea’s Kim In-kyung shot a four-under 68 to open up a two-shot lead at the halfway stage of the Women’s British Open at Kingsbarns in Fife.
Kim backed up her opening 65 with an eagle and three birdies in torrential rain to reach 11 under and leave her clear of England’s Georgia Hall (67) and American Lexi Thompson (68).
Overnight leader Michelle Wie followed her course record 64 with a 76.
“I think it [the rain] was about as bad as it could get,” Kim said.
“But I really enjoy playing here. If I had to play golf anywhere in the rain, this would be the course.”
American Ally McDonald sits fourth after a 68, one clear of England’s Jodi Ewart Shadoff, who posted a 70.
Sally Watson is the only Scot out of the seven starters to have made the cut, posting a 69 that included an eagle on 11 to sit three under in a tie for 34th.
