Charlotte Thompson from England shares half the line with the German Esther Henseleit in the La Reserva de Sotogrande Invitational in Spain.

26-year-old world number 581, which scored its best score on the Ladies European Tour with a six-under-66 on Thursday, followed it with a 73.

Rookie Henseleit, who top five -10 & # 39; s has of her first six professional tournaments, joined her at five years.

They are one without French pair Camille Chevalier and Celine Herbin.

Thompson & # 39; s opening round had an eagle in the par-five second when she didn't realize that her ball had gone into the cup, but at the same hole on Friday she achieved a double bogeyman.

"I did not shoot the best photo in green and gave myself a horrible rise and down and completely mucked my shot and hit it in a bunker and not up and down from there," she explained.

"These things happen and I kept my head. I did it very well and really ran away."

The Chelmsford-based golfer braved wind gusts to put two birdies together in a bogey-free back nine and said, "Normally a 73 would be disappointing, but on a windy day like today it's a good score "

Henseleit, 20, who was the only player to record a bogey-free round in southern Spain, had a birdie and a bogey on every nine in a level par 72, while Scotland & Michele's Michele Thomson was one of the players of the cut on the number to seven left.

After this tournament, five more are included in the qualification for the European team against the United States in the Solheim Cup in September, which is held in Gleneagles in Scotland.
