Hannah Green, the Australian, pursues the victory of her life at the KPMG Women & # 39; s PGA Championship in Minnesota – and is doing very well.

Perth & # 39; s Green, 22, stood on the leaderboard in the ladies' third major tour of the season for a second consecutive day at Hazeltine National Golf Club near Minneapolis today after a second round 69 to deal with her opening 68.

She was three in the front when she signed her card under seven-under overall and still led by a shot halfway through the second round in her seventh start in a major. Former world number 1 Ariya Jutanugarn in among the pursuers at six-under, still on the run.

The previous best finish of Green in two seasons on the LPGA Tour is the seventh in the ISPS Handa Women & # 39; s Australian Open in 2017.

Her three previous wins as a professional were on the secondary Symetra Tour in 2017, when she first obtained her playing rights on & # 39; the world's largest tour.

Green made three birds on the par-fours, but her par at the 12th hole was the most spectacular of them all, after putting her second shot in a pond short and to the right of the green. After taking a penalty drop, she continued with an opening of 50 meters.

"I didn't even think I hit it in the water, I didn't think it was that close," she said later. "I was angry that I hit it there because it was a rather silly mistake. I just wanted it close, make sure it stayed on the right layer on the green. When it went in, I just laughed. not been so lucky in a long time in the past two years. "

Green was also bored in the first round from a bunker and made jokes about the ball rolling for her during the opening of two days in Hazeltine. "I hope it can stay for the next two days," she said.

ON the American PGA Tour, Jason Day roared around the TPC River Highlands with a seven-under-par 63 to participate in the Travelers Championship.

Day is four shots of the leader of Zach Sucher from the United States.
