Indian golfer Aditi Ashok carded a disappointing five-over 77 to bow out of the KPMG Women's PGA Championship.

Aditi, whose entry for a second Olympic appearance will be confirmed next week, couldn't make her record 17th start at a Major event count as she had five bogeys and no birdie.

It was Aditi's second appearance of the year. She made the cut at the ANA Inspiration but did not play the US Women's Open.

Nelly Korda, fresh off an LPGA win last week, birdied her final six holes and holds a one-shot lead.

Korda fired a 9-under-par 63 at Atlanta Athletic Club in the second round, leaving her at 11-under 133. First-round leader Lizette Salas was 5 under on Friday, and she holds second place at 10 under.

Cydney Clanton (5 under in the second round), France's Celine Boutier (8 under) and Canada's Alena Sharp (4 under) share third place at 7-under 137.

Diksha into Top-10 in Czech Republic

Indian golfer Diksha Dagar moved to the top-10 at the Tipsport Czech Ladies Open after returning a bogey-free 4-under 68 in the second round.

Diksha, who in 2019 became the second Indian after Aditi Ashok to win on the Ladies European Tour, had shot 2-under 70 in the first round and is now 6-under.

Meanwhile, things did not go well for Tvesa Malik (71-74) and Astha Madan, who are set to miss the cut.

While Tvesa is 1-over and the cut is likely to fall at par, Astha, after her first-round 83, is virtually out of the event.

Earlier this month Diksha finished T-6 at the Amundi Czech Ladies event, which was part of the LET Access Series (LETAS), one rung below the Ladies European Tour.
