Rudgeley leading Aussie charge in Singapore
by Dane Heverin
Australia (+3) are stuck in the middle of the table in seventh place after another tricky day at the Queen Sirikit Cup in Singapore, but top-ranked player Kirsten Rudgeley put in an impressive display.
Japan are the runaway leaders with a total team score of 16-under as Rudgeley (+1) shot an even-par round on Wednesday to sit in 11th place - 11 shots back from leader Japan's Hashimoto Mizuki - on the individual leaderboard at the halfway mark of the tournament.
The West Australian said things began to change during the second round for the Australians and she is optimistic both her and the team can come home strong in the coming days.
"Today was a good day for us all and I think we are getting use to the weather finally," Rudgeley said. "The course here at Laguna National is still in awesome condition and we're all looking forward to tomorrow and seeing what the team can do."
Kelsey Bennett and Caitlin Peirce are both tied for 22nd at six-over par for the tournament, while Australian Amateur champion Fiona Xu - representing New Zealand - is in a tie for third.
