6:46 am on 23 February 2013

The New Zealand amateur golfer Lydia Ko had a mixed second round at the LPGA Thailand Open yesterday but ended with a promising four under par for the tournament.

The 15-year-old started the day tied for 10th, she's now tied for ninth after a round of 71.

She's a long way back from the leaders though, world number three Stacy Lewis is 12 under par, holding a three-shot lead over

Thai teenager Ariya Jutanugarn.
