After going 64-78 to start the Open de Espana, Cheyenne Woods got off the roller coaster on moving day, ending up where she started the day after making 2 birdies and 2 pars. She's in the middle of the pack with many golfers still on the course, but it's clear she's not going to be winning this week. At -2, she's 10 shots behind 2nd-round co-leaders Lee-Anne Pace and Celine Herbin, who are both -4 through 13 and trying to maintain their 3-shot advantage on the charging Mikaela Parmlid and Joanna Klatten (both -5 through 15 and -9 overall). Pace is #2 on the LET's Order of Merit, right behind Gwladys Nocera, who's fighting to improve on her -3 through 15 holes round today (-6 overall, tied with American Beth Allen, who's #9 on the Order of Merit, and Melissa Reid, a perennial top European player). While #3 Charley Hull fell further down the leaderboard at exactly the wrong time (she's hoping to become a captain's pick for Team Euro in the Solheim Cup), #4 Carlota Ciganda shot the low round of the day thus far, a 66 that brought her to -5 for the week, while her fellow Spaniard Tania Elosegui has a few holes left to try to pass her.
In a nutshell, Woods is being passed by top LET players, but has a chance to get back in the passing lane tomorrow. Let's see if she can do it!
