Bronte Law, Jacqui Concolino and Jennifer Song will enter the weekend at Kingsmill Resort with a share of the lead at the Pure Silk Championship.
Law signed for a 3-under 68 card, comprised of three bogeys offset by six birdies, including three-straight on Nos. 15, 16, and 17 to reach 9-under par.
“It was a battle. Seemed to feel like every time I would make a birdie and try and build on it I would have an unforced error couple holes later and make bogey and be back to where I started,” said Law, who also held a share of the first-round lead.
Song, also a day-one co-leader, matched Law’s 68 with a card showing 11 pars, five birdies and two bogeys.
“Overall, very happy with my round,” Song said. “I managed to make great scrambles here and there and just made a couple birdies coming in. Very happy about my round.”
Concolino finished her second day in Virginia with five birdies and a bogey en route to a 67 to join her playing partner Song atop the leaderboard.
“Jennifer and I are good friends. We were just talking about it in the tent. We fed off each other,” Concolino said.
“She made a birdie, I made a birdie. She was making birdies on top of me.”
The three co-leaders are all aiming for their maiden LPGA Tour victory.
Carlota Ciganda (65) and Madelene Sagstrom (66) were T4 at 8-under par.
Nelly Korda (66), Nasa Hataoka (67) and Ashleigh Buhai (67) were one further back at 7 under.
Five players rounded out the top 10 at 5-under par, including overnight co-leader Anna Nordqvist (72), Brittany Lincicome (69), Sung Hyun Park (66), Brooke Henderson (71), and Jessica Korda (68).
Defending champion Ariya Jutanugarn, and world No. 1 Jin Young Ko each carded a 68, and were six shots back at 3-under par.
