Lydia Ko said she felt her second round on Friday wasn’t as strong as her first round on Thursday. Her assessment says otherwise.

Ko scored her second consecutive 7 under 65 score, taking a two-stroke lead at 14 under from the second round of the Scottish Open Women’s Trust Golf. She’s two shots ahead of Lilia Wu and three shots ahead of Eun-Hee Ji, heading into the weekend.

For Koh, who posted her 12th round of the season without ghosts, which became the best of the tour, she’s close to winning golf. She placed second in the event last year.

With 36 holes to play, Ko is at the wheel looking for another win.

“Today I had a few more birding opportunities that I missed,” Ko said. “When I made the turn, I pared really well on the 18th hole, which was my ninth. Then I made a good dash first and I had really good momentum.”

Coming out of 1-35, Ko fired a 6-30 into her back nine, which was underscored by a nearly single hit on fourth par-3 and an eagle on fifth par-5.

Koh hasn’t won a major at the LPGA since 2019 and hasn’t won a tournament since March.

The round of the day belonged to Gee, who scored 8-under-64 and moved up 15 spots on the leaderboard. Hye-Jin Choi, who was in the lead after the first round, is tied for sixth place after her performance among players under 71.
