India’s Aditi Ashok shot a bogey free three-under 69 to lie tied 15th at the halfway stage of the CP Women’s Open here.

Starting on the back nine, Aditi fired birdies on 14th and 18th and added a third on ninth and parred the rest to take her total to five-under.

Aditi is still searching for her first Top-10 of the season and this year her best has been T-18 in Arkansas.

Nicole Broch Larsen, the 26-year-old from Denmark, is atop the leaderboard, shooting a six-under 66 to take lead at 12-under.

She holds a one-stroke advantage over Rolex Rankings No. 1 Jin Young Ko and a three-stroke lead over Canadian favourite and defending champion Brooke Henderson, Yu Liu and Pajaree Anannarukarn.

First-round leader Annie Park struggled on Friday, shooting a four-over 76 and falling into a tie for 38th at three-under.

Rolex Rankings No. 1 Jin Young Ko is quietly nipping at leader Nicole Broch Larsen’s heels, just one stroke off the lead and looking for her fourth win of 2019.

Canadian superstar Brooke Henderson, the 2018 CP Women’s Open champion, followed up a first-round 66 with a bogey-free, three-under 69.
