Ko had made a strong start, with six birdies and a pair of bogeys leaving her two shots off the lead in a share of ninth with a four-under par 68 after the first round.

But the 20-year-old Kiwi dropped down the leaderboard with a second round one-over 73, two birdies book-ending three bogeys.

She now sits in a share of 25th with seven others, eight strokes off the pace set by Angel Yin of the US, whose second-round 65 gives her a two-stroke lead.

Koreans In Gee Chun, Jin Young Ko and Sung Hyun Park share second place on nine-under 135 after two rounds.

Ko, now ranked ninth in the world, has not won an LPGA event since July 2016.
