Webb trails in Women's Australian Open

But nobody - except perhaps Wei-Ling Hsu - has played better, or more positively, than Sagstrom as she enters the weekend at 10-under par for the championship. It was the beginning of an excellent year for her, a season in which she made her way on the main tour, suffered all the difficulties common to young touring professionals in the early part of their careers, but retained her card. "I literally have never rolled a putter better, probably", she said.

"Getting to sleep on a tie for the lead on the LPGA, I couldn't ask for anything else".

Sentimental favourite Karrie Webb is struggling to gain ground on the leaders at the Australian Open in Adelaide.

Speaking of the five-time champion ...

Webb was unable to emulate her terrific play from the opening round - where she wound back the clock to shoot 67 - and eventually settled for two-over 74.

Still, the World Golf Hall of Famer enters the weekend sharing 17th place. "I'm disappointed not to play better and be close to the lead".

"I just stayed really consistent, hit a lot of fairways and a lot of greens", said Korda, the world No. 16 who last month finished third at the Tournament of Champions. PHOTO: Mark Brake/Getty Images.

Brexit ‘high noon’ could see Theresa May lose six ministers
The motion called on MPs to reiterate support for the approach set out in an earlier set of votes on 29 January. To the anger of the opposition parties, Mrs May was not in the chamber to hear the result declared.

Immediately behind that pair is 22-year-old Perth professional Hannah Green and America's hugely-talented 20-year-old Nelly Korda, already one of the best players in the world, as well as former victor Haru Nomura of Japan.

Hsu, who is angling for a maiden LPGA title after collecting a career-high four top-10 finishes past year, hit four birdies to one bogey in her second-round 69 to be 10-under-par for the tournament. "But yes, after last week, I think I was probably a bit more nervous than I was, compared to a year ago". USA player Nelly Korda put herself in contention with a magnificent 66, the joint best round of the day.

Webb remains on her overnight score of three under par after 15 holes of Saturday's third round at the Grange Golf Club.

Korda, who had seven birdies in 10 holes, said: "I got off to a really solid start and just kept it going".

So too does 20-year-old Gold Coaster Karis Davidson, after her rounds of 71 and 70. The world No. 69 has hit just one bogey in the first two days of action.

While she made the grade, it was a horror day for New Zealand's former top-ranked Lydia Ko, who returned a 77.
