Carin Koch took the 2nd-round lead in the S4/C Wales Ladies Championship of Europe with a fantastic 68 in windy conditions in Wales, prompting much alliteration from the LET. She's opened up a 1-shot lead on Christel Boeljon (72) and a 2-shot gap on Melissa Reid (68) and 1st-round leader Vikki Laing (74).
