6:48 pm on 31 January 2009

The Australian golfer Sarah Oh has taken the lead at the New Zealand Women's Golf Open at Clearwater.

Oh is at nine under par after shooting a flawless second round of 68 on Saturday.

Oh says she felt really good on the Clearwater Course and her round could've been better if a few more putts had of dropped.

The leading New Zealander is the 14-year-old Aucklander Cecilia Cho, who is seven shots off the lead in a tie for sixth after firing a second round 73.

Next best New Zealanders are national Under 23 amateur champion Zoe Beth Brake and Wellington's Sarah Nicholson on 146 in a tie for 16th.

The final round of the tournament is on Sunday.
