Junkkari Leads at Halfway Stage in England

The European Ladies' Amateur Championship has reached the halfway stage at Parkstone Golf Club.

Round one leader, Amalie Leth-Nissen, kept herself in contention with a one-over-par 73 on day two on the southern coast of England. The Danish player, who is the youngest in the field, sits in a tie for third on five-under-par after 36 holes played.

Leth-Nissen is joined by Gile Bite Starkute of Lithuania, and Italy's Virginia Elena Carta, who carded rounds of 70 (-2) and 71 (-1) respectively to also reach five-under for the tournament.

Krista Junkkari is the current solo leader. The Finnish player made five birdies and just one bogey in round two add a 68 (-4) to her day one score of 69 (-3) and top the leaderboard at the halfway stage on seven-under-par. 

Caterina Don, who recently shot an eight-under-par 64 in the stroke play qualifying of the European Girls' Team Championship, birdied the last three holes to card a four-under-par round of 68 and sits just one shot off the lead on six-under-par. Her compatriot, and recent Vagliano Trophy teammate, Alessia Nobilio is just three shots further back on three-under-par in a tie for 10th position. 

Thursday's lowest score came from a French player. Gala Dumez erased five dropped shots from day one with a 67 (-5) in round two to return to level-par for the tournament and into a tie for 25th place.

A cut for the top-60 players and ties will be made after round three on Friday, with the cut line currently sitting at +4.
