Ashleigh Storms to 2nd Rnd Lead

by | Mar 27, 2007

Round two of the 2007 Sanlam SA Amateurs Championship at the magnificent George Golf Course contrasted sharply for the two tournament favourites, as day 1 leader  Kelli Shean disappointed to close with a two-over par 74, while defending champion Ashleigh Simon scorched home with a red-hot seven-under par 65.

Monday’s cold and blustery weather also contrasted sharply with the gorgeous weather enjoyed on Sunday, but it only seemed to spur on South Africa’s most renown amateur.

Simon scored a blistering first 9, which included five birdies on holes 2, 3, 4, 5, and 8 for 31, and continued the rhythm on the back nine with four birdies against 2 drops to see her sign for a 65, and a combined Stroke Play championship score of 136.

Simon now leads the Amateur champs by six shots going into Tuesday’s third round, and she will be glad that the many green shots missed on Sunday were rolling in on a great Monday, not to mention posting the only sub-70 round on the day.

Kim Williams continues to impress, her third place on the leaderboard secure by a margin of three shots over Ireland’s Sarah Faller, and positioning her in the top three ball for an exciting charge on the final day.
