Nalini Siwach remains 50th after 2nd round at LET Q-School

Press Trust of India  |  Marrakech (Morocco) 

Playing the second round at the Al Amelkis Golf Course, the 23-year-old Nalini shot a round of 73 to go with the 75 she had on the first day to be four-over 148 after 36 holes.

Nalini needs to get into the top-45 or ties to get into the Final Stage of the LET Q-School.

"Yesterday I had 3-over and 1 over today. I am not hitting it really good right now but on the course I have to do my best. I am just going to remember the positives for the next 2 days and try to play similar rounds and hopefully make it to the final," she said.

"I had two birdies yesterday and three today, so hopefully it is getting better. I know what I am doing wrong.

What I did on Indian Open two weeks ago and now, is pretty much similar. I just need to stay on the ball and hit it and not trying to see the result even before I hit it. I am being impatient," she added.

In Group A of the pre-qualifying, amateur Emily Taylor moved into lead at nine-under 135 after rounds of 67 and 68. Julia Davidson (68-69) and Mallory Fraiche (65-73) are lying second and third.

In Group B, Holy Clyburn (70-65) was on top at nine-under 135 with Jacqueline Hedwall (66-71) second. Three players are tied at 138.

The 154 players who are playing the 1st Stage Pre-qualifying have been divided into two groups of 77 each from which the top 45 and ties will move to the Final Stage.

The first Stage is being played from December 6 to 9 and then the five-round Final Stage will be played from December 13 to 17.
