Lydia Ko posts blemish-free round, lurking in contention halfway through Women's World Championship

Lydia Ko has put in another consistent performance to remain in the hunt halfway through the HSBC Women's World Championship in Singapore.

Ko notched a second round two-under-par 70 at Sentosa Golf Club, leaving her tied for 13th and five shots off American leader Amy Olson.

The Kiwi golfer started her tournament with an even-par opening round but started stronger today with birdies on the second and sixth before she settled in for 12-straight pars to score a blemish-free round.

Olson sits in the lead due to an eagle on the par-five eighth but there's a five-way tie in second on her tail: Inbee Park (69), Azahrara Munoz (68), Jodi Ewart Shadoff (70), top-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn (71) and No 3 Minjee Lee (71).
