Saturday LIVE: Law Storms into the Mix

Bronte Law has stormed into contention at the Women’s NSW Open shooting a second successive 68 to move to eight under for the tournament.

The Englishwoman’s round was bit of a ride, two bogeys, four birdies and a hole in one on the 131 metre par-three 13th. It appears good enought however, to book a spot in the final group, at this stage alongside the Chinese Taipei golfer Peiying Tsai and tournament leader, Maria Jose Uribe Duran.

“I don’t care either way,” Law replied when asked if playing in the final group was something she liked. “I don’t need to be in the last group. I don’t ned to see what’s going on. I’ll be out pushing hard from the beginning.”

Law said the course had some similarities to where she palys at home, but the conditions are naturally different.

“The grass is different so that takes a lot of time. I’m very much a feel player so I had to hit a lot of practice chips. but I’m still pretty with the way that I chipped today.”

As for her hole-in-one, Law said she was not really sure it had gone in, nor she said was it one of her better swings. It was, as best as she could recall, probably about her tenth. it was a fugire she had stopped keeping after her seventh.

“Sometimes they just happen like that, the swing wasn’t that great but it went in.”

“My favourite number is seven, So when I got to seven I was really happy, but since then, I sort of stopped paying attention.”

‘MJ’ as she likes to be called, rolled in birdies on the 3rd, 4th 7th, 11th, 13th, 16th and 17th, to establish herself as the player to beat when tomorrow’s final round gets underway.

“There’s so many birdies out there, so it’s going to be a birdie shootout tomorrow.”

Peiying Tsai sits in second place after carding a second-round 67. The Chinese Taipei gun was moving along well, however a soft bogey on the last cruelled what could have been another course record-equalling round.

“Tsai, however, was still pleased with her round.

It was fantastic, I played well and hit good shots and putts.”

Spain’s Marta Martin has carded a two-under-par round of 70 to be tied for third at minus-seven alongside Slovenia’s Ana Belac.

Overnight leader Justice Bosio is on the course, however, she hasn’t got off to the best of starts, bogeying the first hole to drop back to minus six.
