CHONBURI, Thailand >> Anna Nordqvist made two late bogeys at the rainy LPGA Thailand, leaving her a stroke ahead Friday after the second round.
The Swede shot an even-par 72 to remain 6 under. Germany’s Sandra Gal, Paraguay’s Julieta Granada and Spain’s Azahara Munoz were tied for second. Hawaii’s Michelle Wie shot a 73 to fall from second to a tie for fifth with Stacy Lewis, two strokes back.
The players got a break from the usual hot, humid conditions, with the temperature only reaching the 70s the first two days at Siam Country Club.
“I think we all expected it to be warmer,” said Nordqvist. “Today with a little bit of rain and overcast it felt like I still had a lot of the energy leaving the 18th green.”
Nordqvist bogeyed Nos. 16 and 18. She had three birdies and three bogeys.
“There were some tough pins out there,” Nordqvist said. “A lot of them were on ridges, and I felt like I hit a lot of good shots and kept spinning off the ridges. Not much you can do. Felt like I hit it solid. A little disappointed to finish with a bogey on the last.”
