Pear Pooratanaopa is in the top 20 thanks to a solid back nine which included two birdies. She tallied an 80 (+8) in the second round and she is 154 (+10) for the tournament, currently sitting in a tie for 17th place. Senior Ariadna Fonseca Diaz ended the day shooting 80 (+8) and is tied for 29th place at 158 (+14).
