Italian Giulia Sergas

Playing in the final group on a Sunday is a new experience for 30-year-old Sergas. After eight years on tour she remains winless. Yesterday she revealed how she talks to the course throughout her round. While it worked yesterday in her round of four under 69, today there were a few crossed wires out there.

“I tried but I wasn’t hitting it where it was pointing at,” she laughed.

“It was like ‘I told you here, what are you doing?’ so I had to kind of take different ways today.”

There were only five back stretching handstands for her bad back on the course today, but Sergas has promised the crowd a victory handstand on 18 should she win her first professional tournament tomorrow.

A Laura Davies handstand would also be fun to watch but the Brit will probably celebrate in a different manner tomorrow should she go back to back.

In order to win her second tournament from four starts Down Under, Davies said she would have to be a lot straighter than she was today.

Still, there is nothing better than a Davies miracle shot, and she thrilled the crowd today with her stunning 221m two iron on the par 5 13th from behind the trees.

“That was a ten, definitely,” she said.

“We were trying to get in the front bunker, we didn’t think it would get on the green, then I almost got my eagle putt.”

Davies said Webb was definitely the threat tomorrow.

“Nothing against Giulia but Webby has won what, five (sic) Opens already and seven Masters, she likes this little time of the year in March doesn’t she?”

Also not out of the race tomorrow is Katherine Hull who is on 3 under 216, one shot ahead of World No 6 Yani Tseng and 17-year-old Korean, Soo-Jin Yang on 2 under 217.

England’s Melissa Reid said even though she is five shots back on 1 under 218, she could still claim the Patricia Bridges Bowl.

“I still fancy my chances of winning,” she said.

“I just said to Mardy my caddy, if we get a few going on the front nine there is no reason we can’t shoot a low one tomorrow.”
